Why am I working for Awaris?
Because, as a client, I was able to experience for myself how sustainable the cultural change accompanied by Awaris can shape a leadership culture. Because the culture of Awaris is characterized by innovation, appreciation and courage, it is a pleasure to work with Liane and Chris. David joined the Awaris team in 2019.
