As much as all the speakers at Creative Week are successful professionals, the path was not easy. They achieved the level they are at with some effort, combining talent, commitment, study and experience.
In addition to overcoming obstacles, they did not “stop” or stayed in the comfort zone. Even if they had already fulfilled a dream, they set themselves new professional goals and continued to develop. This is common to all of them and, in some ways, part of the recipe for success.
The students present showed that they knew this and were very participatory in return. As the days went on, the audience offered a high level of engagement and excitement.
With so much knowledge, the participants paid attention to tips and market experience. They wrote everything down and asked questions that served to make the event even richer and more complete.
All of this acquired knowledge is of great use to them in order to meet the demands and even the challenges of the job market. With the help of one of the ZION trainings, the process is less complex.
Two more moments of total enthusiasm from the students were the confirmation for the next ZION event, the Extreme challenge, in which all units take part in a major design competition that competes for incredible prizes and the spread of their work and also the opening of the selection process for the ZION e-Sports team.

The fourth success of Creative Week also served to demonstrate the importance of creating better and better events to prepare students for.
