The better the merrier! These are our main characteristics (and working on them every day):
- Life Motivation – the wish (even need) to share, help and support others
- Maturity – so that the life experience can provide enough wisdom for sharing (of course we will make exceptions for gifted, special persons)
- Experience – at list middle management position in a multinational company – so that as a trainer we can talk from experience not from “books”.
Setting these prerequisites, here we are:

Catalin is one of the founders of Qipa, 10 years ago. After holding for 3 years the position of General Manager at Mercuri International Romania (training and consultancy company, occupying no. 2 worldwide in the fields of sales and management), Catalin created Qipa believing that it was the only way he could incorporate the personal development area in the programs he was delivering. He believes personal development is what „pushes” people forward and helps them discover their own motivational strings. The results of his work can be seen in the number of students that kept in touch with Catalin and, years later after meeting him during trainings, still ask him for advice.
