It is very rarely that you meet a person which can change your life. Some people will teach you lessons, others will shape you, but very few will set a 360 degree turning point. I had the incredible opportunity of having Mr. Gheorghe Aurel Pacurar as my mentor when I started learning Java and his teachings have led me so much further than my expectations. With an unlimited amount of patience and setting different pathways for learning, he manages to challenge and drive his students to discover their potential in the vast world of programming. His expertise and life experiences are enhanced by his talent of sharing them and inspiring others. Constantly emphasizing strengths and finding ways to improve on weaknesses, he is capable of turning any person with the right amount of desire to code into a programmer. I shall forever be grateful to him for turning a Finance graduate into a Developer. I believe without a doubt that he will be able to guide anyone willing to embark on a journey that could change their careers and ultimately their lives with just a "Hello World!
Meeting with Professor Gheorghe Aurel Pacurar is a unique lifechanging opportunity, especially when you really want a change. He is not only a good teacher who from his knowledge and experience accumulated can transmit the information in a structured form of educational curriculum.
He is The Man in whom Mankind, Humility, Wisdom, and Kindness are joined in an infinite form like an Angel.
Based on the wisdom, He chooses from his vast technical, managerial and educational experience, just the information you need when you are to step forward and grow on the path chosen.
He has the Grace and experience to understand, better than you, the level that you are, even if you don't realize it yet. He knows what you need and what are the immediate steps you need to do to grow; not only professional and technical but also as a man fulfilled and satisfied with you Soul.
When I read on site ,,a-sti.ro" the first time his basic principle, namely that ,,mentors are for apprentices...." , I thought it was a writing mistake or only marketing. But after only a few meetings I realized that the written principle is only under 1% of the depth of the role of The Mentor he actually assumes.
If you really want a positive change to a new life I recommend you to get closer to Professor Gheorghe Aurel Pacurar, to interact with him throughout courses and go with him for a while.
The rest, by His touch of an Angel, will come from him.
And you'll suddenly feel like the change will come by itself.
My name is Satmar Vasile Maximilian and I felt the positive change in my life having Professor Gheorghe Aurel Pacurar as Mentor.
I recommend him as The One Mentor you need!
Gheorghe is one of those managers who is also an inspiring mentor and a excellent leader for the staff. With years of experience as a mentor and a background in psychology, Gheorghe shows strong interpersonal skills and empathy. Skills which amplify his abilities to motivate the team and dedication to project success. In all our collaboration, Gheorghe demonstrated high expertise and management skills.
Few people have the opportunity to report to a manager who is also a coach and a mentor – but I did when I worked with Gheorghe.
As a team member and a leader Gheorghe earns my highest recommendation.
I am aware that everyone has a different learning experience when working with their teacher, but I think that one thing is always there when you work with Gheorghe.
Me personally, he gave me the that hunger and passion you get when someone helps you understand something new.
And in my opinion, when it comes to learning software development, staying hungry and passionate for learning constantly new things is crucial.
So, if I am to think about the most important influence from him, then that is it, the rest was up to me.
I had the great opportunity to meet Gheorghe as my first trainer at the beginning of my software development career. I can say I was given a big chance to be initiated by such a professional person. Gheorghe has a huge gift of transforming software development into a wonderful life experience by making each piece of code clear and understandable in a practical and, also, entertaining way. Besides being a dedicated programmer and a kind trainer, Gheorghe has a deep human understanding and a great sense of humor. He managed to test my weaknesses and to transform them into my deepest strengths, making me more confident and eager to evolve into this world of programming. Once you’ll meet Gheorghe, you’ll gain a friend for life, present always with a constructive advice not only for your professional evolution, but also for your growth of becoming the desired individual.
I have known Gheorghe as special teacher with an unusual talent to teach, to be coacher, a singular trainer and mentor. Going together through "Project Management - PMP structure", "Time Management", "Agile Scrum" courses, I saw that he captures attention and transmits what he knows, is and has to give. He accompanies presentation slides with profound professional knowledge, patience, and care for apprentice. Time spent with him transforms you because he's a transforming agent, both as an IT professional and as a man; and after some time you find yourself transformed both through the acquisition of new knowledge and by changing the perspective in which you get to look at things. I feel gain from interacting with him.
Gheorghe is the proof that some guys are born to be trainers and coaches. We were colleagues at Softvision as Department Managers and during those years, I’ve learned from him, first of all, the value of listening. He is a good technical guy, but I guess these days almost everyone is. But his big plus is that he can and loves transferring the knowledge (both as trainer and as leader). This makes him an outstanding professional. I always appreciate people that love doing their job and Gheorghe is one of those.
Gheorghe Aurel Pacurar is the kind of man you want to work with day by day, his charisma and people skill are impressive.
I had the honor to work with Gheorghe for a short time, but during that brief period of time I could see clearly his passion & devotion for software development in every project he was involved.
Thanks to his great project management skills I could quickly pick up on some great tricks to improve my productivity and get more stuff more quickly & efficiently done. Training sessions with Gheorghe were always a delight and whenever I had a problem, he was there to listen.
His rich technical skills & experience make him a great asset for any company and every company should have its own Gheorghe.
Gheorghe was instrumental in our first attempt to bring agile and scrum to Betfair. He clearly understood how to get scrum working and he taught me a lot. He was a thought leader, passionate and engaging. I really liked working with him.
Gheorghe is a skilled technologist and a good mentor for new engineers. He is passionate about agile development processes and is equally able to coordinate teams of engineers and gain the trust and respect of business people – communicating with both groups in their own language. Gheorghe was hugely valuable to us in setting up a new development centre; he helped recruit and train a great team that got us up and working on live projects in a very short time. R&D was another role that suited him; he was well placed by being able to see the business value in technical ideas and help guide them to completion.
Early after he came in the company, Gheorghe, started to change all the thinks in better. Finally I met somebody who really knew what software development it is all about, having an a lot of experience both practical and theoretical, and and impressive resume. He is a huge source of know-how and knowledge in all fields (professional and life related) and working with him meant for me a very quick learning course, very enthusiastic and stunning experience something like stepping into a high speed train, an important boost for my career. :) He is a great friend and colleague being all the time with the team and for the team.
