Our workshops are conducted with a focus on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) and we integrate behavioural sciences, evidence-based methodologies, and global perspectives into our services.

Why do you focus on early careers/ emerging talent?

We recognise the significant potential and future impact of this demographic in both business and society. Our expertise lies in this area, where we provide programs that not only address current skill gaps but also anticipate the changing requirements of future work settings.

Does DBL specialise in certain types of clients/industries?

We collaborate with a diverse range of clients across various sectors, catering to multinational corporations, SMEs, and mid-sized enterprises. Our unique approach involves customising compelling content and delivery approaches to address the individual requirements of each client.

What are the key human skills that equip early talent professionals for the future workplace?

The key human skills that prepare early talent professionals for the future workplace, our most sought-after skills by clients, include Personal Branding, Social Intelligence, Critical Thinking, Growth Mindset, Self-Awareness, Resilience, Problem-Solving, Teamwork & Collaboration, Career Empowerment, and Feedback

Do you offer any ready-to-go programmes?

We offer ready-to-go best practice programs and collaborate closely with clients to craft tailored or fully bespoke solutions. Our portfolio includes 40 ready-to-go modules for early career development, covering topics from Self-Awareness and Personal Branding to Critical Thinking and Career Empowerment. Additionally, we provide 80% developed full learning paths for managers and graduates, offering comprehensive upskilling solutions in a compelling and effective manner.

Are there specific limits on workshop capacity?

We have the flexibility to conduct workshops for both small and large groups based on your requirements. Our most extensive single live orientation event accommodated 1200 graduates (in-person), and we are equipped to organise large scale virtual events as well. We work with our clients and each individual learning outcome in order to determine the most suitable group size.

Would you suggest face to face or virtual learning?

"Virtual workshops provide flexibility and convenience, enabling participants to engage from any location. While interactive through digital tools, they depend on reliable internet connectivity and digital proficiency.

In contrast, face-to-face workshops offer direct engagement with instructors and peers, interactive exercises, and real-time feedback, enhancing communication and involvement. They facilitate natural networking opportunities and a well-defined learning setting but involve travel and scheduling limitations.

The decision between virtual and face-to-face workshops is influenced by the learning goals, resources, and preferences of the learners and the organisation."
