I believe the overall program structure pre-work, session & post interactive work has made this a learning experience! As the multiple concepts and experiences, prompts you to dig deeper and opens your learning horizon.

People Matters Certification Program was a unique experience of learning various EX solutions across the employee journey on how to reconstruct it in today’s context and maximize engagement, alignment, and productivity. With over 600+ participants and 10 Global Experts facilitating the live sessions, People Matters gave me the unique opportunity to interact, discuss ideas and network with fellow participants. Thank you People Matters for providing this wonderful learning opportunity.

Loved the BeNext learning platform blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Participants have a daily target! If they don't reflect on the short video or learning item and comment on a topic... it disappears by the end of the day! Planned constraints like this 'motivate' participants to stay on track. The engaged core group of 'Navigators' work with the 'lighthouses' to help others to be engaged as well. Each section also has a great set of reflective questions that generate deep insights. Great job Ester Martinez and team BeNext and People Matters!

Just finished the content of week 2 of People Matters BeNext Online Facilitator training. After week one, leading a virtual team, week two focused on facilitating meetings online. I am not new to the topics, but I am really learning a lot. The best part? Getting to experience many new tools and ideas during the live Masterclasses, while interacting both during the live sessions and on the learning platform with inspiring professionals I would most likely never had the opportunity to meet in the physical world. Thanks to the Peoplematters team around Ester Martinez making this possible! Looking forward to two more weeks of the program to come! #peoplematters.
