LEARNING THROUGH STORIES & SCENARIOS

The New Executive Training Program (NXT) essentially is a role-playing training program. Participants are introduced to relatable scenarios that many, if not all, employees go through during their first three years in the corporate sector.

In the NXT program, topics are not covered module-by-module. Instead, topics are introduced based on scenarios that will be presented in a random and unpredictable manner (just like in the real world!) and participants will be trained in the tools needed to solve them.

OFFLINE + ONLINE INTERACTIVITY

The NXT program is designed to be interactive on-ground with its scenario-based teaching style, and online, with learning modes and presented through web apps, websites, emails and more!

CONDUCIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

While the pre- and post- NXT lessons are delivered in-house, the bootcamp will be delivered in a safe and comfortable venue, sparking creativity and collaboration.

FUN & REWARDING LEARNING

The NXT program is designed with young adults in mind, mixing education with fun, play and, of course, prizes!
