1. What has been the impact of Springboard so far
Consistent Alternative Education. Research has shown that formal education provides only half of the requisite knowledge that we will need to enable us succeed in our careers. Springboard bridges this gap by providing participants with necessary skills and tools that they will need.
Over the past seven years, Springboard has influenced the lives of over 100,000 people across the country while millions have been reached through radio, television, print and online interventions. These young achievers, form the Springboard alumni many of them now occupy influential positions in businesses and the corporate world
Next year, we will introduce a new segment on the Road Show called “My Springboard Story.” We will offer our alumni the opportunity to share their life stories and experiences, so that others can pick useful lessons from them.
2. What is the theme for 2014
Springboard 2014 will be under the theme "Repositioning." It will focus on three thematic areas, namely Entrepreneurship, Career and Finance. In this rapid changing world, many individuals, organizations and governments have realized that many of the challenges that they face today are very complex and different from those faced years ago. To stay ahead of competition and maximize the opportunities that abound in this fast-paced, we need to reposition ourselves both at the individual and organizational level. We need to equip ourselves with the relevant tools and resources to be able to succeed.
