For the 2019 Finals of the 9th Global PRO Final of The Fresh Connection we chose the country where the Olympic Games originate from: Greece. In the welcoming and ancient city that is Athens our event team organized a riveting event.
The ninth edition of The Fresh Connection Global PRO Challenge included more than 1,000 participants, who were representing hundreds of companies and tens of countries. They first underwent public training sessions or remote training rounds. The greater majority then continued with the Global PRO Challenge rounds, hoping to qualify for the Global PRO Final. 10 teams succeeded in reaching that goal and they subsequently joint us in Athens to compete for a prize and eternal glory.
