Aziz Emre Günel
“It has been really very long time since the time when Socrates told the world that “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” The time has simply justified this doctrine more and more with every passing day. The wiser I am the more meaningful this philosophy becomes and at Management Centre Türkiye (MCT), I am constantly learning some new things, constantly sharing them and constantly adding value to the development of people thanks to an endless source of energy. While I try to grasp the depths of my potential, I also try to grow thanks to their inspiration. My only wish for all of you is to realize and release our potential free in every single opportunity that we come across in life… All of us…deeper and deeper and the further and further as we can go together…”
