Testimonial from ex-participant from 1st run T&L programme:

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to RP’s amazing effort in coordinating the highly successful Travel and Learn Programme to Jakarta, Indonesia in October 2018. This trip opened my eyes to the world of possibilities in Indonesia. From the Networking lunch at University to meeting with the “Unicorns”, each session presented us with different insights of doing business in Indonesia. Not only has this trip met its objective, but it has also way surpassed it!
