“ScripTeast is the programme all the advisors
wish they could have attended at the start of their
careers. It would have saved all that stumbling
around in the dark looking for the key that
stimulates the imagination so much more
effectively.”

ideas, and voices. I learned a lot, and I think the
participants learned a lot more. If only they served
vodka!”
