I have worked with Ogul all over Turkey for several years and I am always amazed by his professionalism. Besides his professional skills he is very good in networking, meeting people and to travel with. I can not recommend him enough.

Elena Monicelli

Director at the Peace School Foundation of Monte Sole, Italy

We had the chance to work with Ogul in beautiful Istanbul. He accompanied us for three days of intense and interactive workshops. He was able to gently understand every slight nuance of us speaking and of the participants responding. He is a very nice person and it is impossible not to trust firstly his work and then his smile. Thank you, Ogul.
