Plenary by Chuck Sandy, İTDİ Director, kicked off the conference. He started off puzzling the audience with an interesting poem and he went on sharing his philosophy of life; “I can’t do this but I am doing it anyway”. Among many others, he focused on the concept of “Open Space Technology”; “whoever comes are the right people. Whatever happens is the only thing that could have”. Chuck Sandy’s session was full of inspirational pictures, stories and quotations.

Partipants of The 1st International Symposium of Yildiz Technical University School of Foreign Languages are very lucky because the conference will give us the opportunity “to communicate” and “get networked”.
