Free Trainings 2019 Recap and What to Expect for 2020

Do the trainings you take matter?

The short and definitive answer is a resounding YES. Not just for the company you want to work with, but also for you as a person. Engaging in continuous learning helps us succeed. In terms of career growth, taking trainings enriches your capabilities. Think of it as investing in your growth. It equips you for the role that you aspire for and strengthens your professional and personal skills. In return, you get to advance your career faster. When applying for a job, having advanced skills also differentiates you from the rest of the candidates.

In 2019, we equipped nearly 150 professionals through various trainings. If you were not able to attend any of them, let us give you an idea how things went down:

Training Recap – 2019


It was our first free training ever, so imagine our jitters! We launched it with SCALE through the SCALE Basics and Pro last July 13 at the Orient Square Building. This focused on finding the attendees’ motivation and developing soft skills that are needed to be successful in any career. And it’s not as serious as you think! We had a “Birdbox” Xcruit version, which was hilarious yet insightful at the same time!


We always say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but the first thing you’ll see IS the cover, so might as well make it attractive! This was the focus of our next training.

Last October 19, Xcruit and John Robert Powers teamed up to provide a custom-made Professional Skills Enhancement seminar. The half-day training was filled with information on personal branding and effective communication. From how you carry yourself to how you speak, the facilitator ticked every box. If those elements match, then you create a more confident version of yourself.


Capping off our 2019 trainings was the Take-Charge Presentation Skills workshop held at Max’s Forbestown last November 30. All of our participants had the privilege of learning from both of our topnotch facilitators from Speakers Bureau, as they engaged in a nerve-wracking yet insightful one-on-one mentoring. We witnessed participants transform from being shy, sheepish presenters to confident, commanding speakers as they made video introductions of themselves. That was truly a take-charge moment!
