It lacks only of hard theories and evidence about the topics being discussed by the professor. Still, the course is great and the professor is fun and lovely. :-)

Senti falta de abordar o potencial do LinkedIn para a construção de marca pessoal. Senti falta da matriz de personal branding, para concluir um documento prático.

Interesting and relevant information but not very in-depth. It's a great course if this is a new concept for you but not if you have any background in it.
