What We Do

We're a new kind of training company: we build learning experiences to shift mindsets, empowering forward-thinking teams to have greater impact, autonomy, and satisfaction in their roles. Through interactive and gamified training we create a growth mindset which enables the acquisition of key transferable skills:

  • Proactivity
  • Problem-solving
  • Initiative-taking
  • Big-picture thinking

These have impact not just at an individual level, but also in the way employees interact and collaborate with team-members, and in how they contextualise and align their objectives and values with those of the organisation in which they work. Our clients see impact in key areas including:

  • Customer experience
  • Adoption of company values
  • Intrapreneurial behaviour

Our background is entrepreneurship—we run popular entrepreneurial workshops and the long-standing Entrepreneurs' Brunch. We bring best practices, tool-kits and techniques from startup hubs around the world. More and more companies are realising the benefits that entrepreneurial behaviour can have on their workforce—in terms of business opportunity, employee pride, integration of values, and customer satisfaction, not to mention the bottom line.

Work/Play Approach

    Our engagements don't really feel like training. Instead, they are fun, interactive experiences where participants learn by doing: trial and experimentation, role-playing, simulations, and team challenges are just a few of the components which make up a typical session. There is no standard formula, though. Our services start with you. We take the time to fully understand your needs, before working with you to create the learning experience that will make a real, lasting difference:

    • No standard format—we customise every engagement based on your needs, your values and your brand
    • Real learning with real results—practical and interactive exercises create and reinforce good habits and best practices during the session itself.

    Let's get started! Contact us and we'll get back to you to arrange an initial 30-minute meeting.

    Vision and Mission

    Our vision is to be the number one training company in Mauritius, empowering teams to have greater impact, autonomy, and satisfaction in their roles.

    Our mission is to design and deliver innovative and impactful learning experiences that shift mindsets and transform businesses.

    Our guiding principles

    1. Work as a force for good
      We believe that an individual’s work is their contribution to the world, and that work, as a craft, deserves time, care and dedication to excellence, no matter the discipline. We strive to embody this mindset of purpose-driven work in our own activities, and to promote it amongst those we serve.
    2. Collaboration
      We value sharing, open dialogue, and mutual support. Our vision, mission, and our day-to-day activities are underpinned by a willingness and desire to work together with other market players. We aim to promote our vision and values in not just the actions of our company and our customers, but also in our competitors. Openness is our default mode of operation.
    3. Innovation
      We seek to disrupt the status quo where it is detrimental to the well-being of individuals, organisations and society, and where it is not aligned with our vision for work as a force for good. We seek to be innovative in our services, our processes, and in our business model.
