Doyobi Classes for Communication: Live Online Course in the Metaverse
It’s often said that 65% of kids will work in jobs that don’t yet exist, right? So we’ve got to stay ahead of the times and start prepping our kids for the future now. Doyobi’s “Be Great with People” live online course teaches kids ages 9-15 to be better communicators so they can navigate difficult conversations and lead more meaningful lives. Part of Doyobi’s Founder Skills for Kids series, the course has been developed with successful founders, delivered by Doyobi’s team of educators and will be conducted in the metaverse! Classes are held through Gather, where kids will go on an intergalactic rescue mission to find a stranded survivor. They will encounter a variety of communication challenges, learn to collaborate with their team, give and receive feedback to improve the team’s overall performance and become more confident in the process. Be Great with People is designed in collaboration with Oswald Yeo, the co-founder and CEO of Glints, the #1 tech-enabled recruitment platform in Asia for employers to build successful teams.
Enjoy 20% off the course using promo code SASSY20 when you book by 10 February 2022.
