stories

Yusuf does amazing work. He learns about the brand and story tells it in video. He uses the latest technology and is a fast adopter of new technology. Also a tireless worker, he will get things done fast when needed. Starting as abrespected journalist in turkey i watched him pivot into a successful entrepreneur using many of those same skills while never stopping to learn. Now he has matured into a full service media company. Also, but not limited to a strong understanding of the international education space and student journey. I would say he is number one in the world for this sector.
