After completing the AMDP, Didier shared this message with us:
I would like to thank all of you for the amazing experience I’ve had at the AMDP program throughout the last 2 years. Maybe it be in person or online, the organization was always flawless and the quality of program world class.
The last 2 years have been truly amazing and life changing for me. AMDP has given me the professional skills and confidence to navigate through the uncertainty of covid and come out of it much stronger!
I’m sad that the AMDP adventure is over but I now have new opportunities that I can’t wait to start working on! Being from a pure Architect background running my architectural practice, but with new skills acquired at AMDP, my newly founded real estate company just last week signed off our first major land acquisition for a new interesting mixed use/ office project centrally located. The beginning of a new real estate adventure!
