Dean Yap, 42
- formerly in banking, in career transition

The full day workshop is packed but never dull. It expanded my mindset, giving more clarity to the ambiguous future. The term, exponential change, is key to waves of revolutionary changes. Preparing my mind to expect these waves allows me to reinspect my current situation, and provides unfair advantage to brace for impact, or better, to capture new opportunities. While the curriculum is great, questions, discussions or even debates from fellow classmates are added bonus. It allows us to see more perspectives, bringing us to deeper understanding. I will recommend this workshop to anyone who wish to remain relevant, and to harness new opportunities that are not visible to many others.


Mark Khng

Charlie made the masterclass very lively by engaging participants in the learning process, where everyone is encouraged to speak freely and candidly in response to his thought-provoking questions on “Jobs-To-Be-Done Framework” and “Innovation”. Besides very well-prepared and inviting participants’ feedback throughout the session, he also uses stories to illustrate key learning points.
