In 2019 we launched our bespoke Talent Development program, ACCELERATE, which brought a group of highly talented people from all parts of BetEasy together to follow a specially designed program of mentoring, expert training sessions and project work.
Over the last 6 months our Accelerators worked together on specific projects as well as on their personalised individual goals with the support of senior mentors and tailored masterclasses. The program helped develop their skills outside their normal remit, from developing financial acumen to building a focus on analytical & strategic thinking.
It all came to a close this week when, following a Shark Tank style format, each team presented their ideas to the Executive and Senior Leadership group. The projects focused on solving challenges linked directly to our strategy and core organisational objectives. A huge amount of work was put in by all the participants and their projects were well articulated and presented.
And the best part of all? The team collectively agreed that collaborating with people from across different parts of the business, along with the support and networking opportunities with the Executive team was an excellent benefit!
The winning team not only secured bragging rights but now will see their idea implemented and become part of our focus for 2020. Congratulations to all who took part. We look forward to seeing how they each put their new skills into practice and can’t wait to welcome our next cohort of participants!
