Program overview

Resilience at Work led by subject matter expert Matt Hughes, Director & Founder of ripen is a fast-paced 7-day collaborative, community learning experience where the focus is on becoming Resilient, not just getting told what Resilience is. 

Learners are given the challenge of applying new and potentially life-changing ways to their lives.

From monitoring mindset to regulating thoughts and emotions and finally to create habits and techniques in building and monitoring Resilience, your people can maintain optimal energy and physical health for immediate and sustained effort.

Who is it for?

People who wish to develop stronger resilience at work and on a personal level.

Deep reflections

Learners will have the opportunity to reflect and analyse what they have learnt, how far they have come, and how they can apply these learnings in the workforce.

Real-time insights

Learners get real-time insights on how far they are performing vs their cohort that helps set their pace and enjoy a healthy dose of competition at the same time. 

Immersive experience

Learners get rich, snackable content that helps boost their retention. They are given tools that enable strong collaboration and deep conversations with their peers.
