We can accommodate up to 100 people for both our online and in person sessions. The optimum number of participants for in person sessions is 20-42. These participant numbers have shown to have the best levels of participant engagement.
The simulation experience is completed in groups of 4-7 people. Each group runs a virtual bank together and competes against other groups in the session.
A typical in-person session will include:
A typical online session will include:
The below additions are available at an extra cost for your customised program (please get in touch for pricing):
The cost of the program depends on the customisation level and delivery method required by your organisation. Some customers require large amounts of bespoke customisation. The program is highly customisable and we can work with you to design a cost-effective simulation aligned with your objectives.
The gamification of training content to learn typically dry content enhances the learning experience and drives engagement amongst participants. Participants actually have fun participating in the sessions and competing against their peers.
Our facilitators support individuals where needed but also allow them to be independent in their game decision-making. Allowing participants to be autonomous in their learning and be held accountable to their decision-making increases engagement.
Our programs foster autonomous-supportive learning environments to improve engagement, motivation and overall performance.
Experiential Learning (learning through doing) has been shown to have far higher content retention rates than traditional learning methods. This type of learning is exceptional for complex industries such as banking and finance.
When learning skills through traditional Powerpoint presentations; it is difficult to retain large amounts of information. Throughout our banking simulation programs, participants experience 5 years of making bank decisions. Participants practice their skills in the simulation and understand the consequences of their decisions through real-time feedback. Merging the theory and practice results in an effective learning experience.
Pilots wouldn’t be allowed to fly planes without practicing their skills in a simulator. Should you allow your team to make real world banking decisions without practicing first?
Yes, in our in-person sessions all participants will be provided with their own tablet to use. This creates a personalised learning experience for participants. We are aware of various other training providers who ask participants to share devices; this can hinder the individual’s learning experience.
For in person events, the only technology we require is a projector. We provide participants with tablets and we also bring our own server and networking system. For online events, participants will need a computer with the latest Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser downloaded.
For both in-person and online programs, we require participant’s first name and email address for the simulation setup.
Our programs typically include 2 experienced coaches for 20 – 42 participants. We have a team of additional facilitators for larger events.
All of our facilitators have extensive banking and leadership backgrounds. Each facilitator has over 15 years’ experience; providing participants with quality educators who can answer banking questions and facilitate discussions on the spot.
Our topics can be customised. We work with you to create a program that suits your organisational objectives and requirements.
Selection of available topics:
Participants run 4 business products during the program. Home Loans, Business Loans and Deposits are included in all programs.
Based on your objectives, a fourth product is chosen from Credit Cards, Wealth Management, Institutional Banking, and Offshore Banking.
A balance scorecard consisting of 6 metrics will be codesigned with your team. Metrics are chosen based on the decision-making skills you would like your participants to improve on. The best performer based on these 6 metrics will win or lose each simulation round.
There are multiple assessment metrics to choose from:
Yes, we can. Some assessment options may incur additional costs, please get in touch for further information.
A popular assessment option for education providers is the use of multiple-choice questions throughout the simulation. Participants are asked questions upon completion of specific simulation tasks to assess their understanding.
We can also provide assignment-based tasks for after the program, based on their decision-making within the simulation activity. Both of these options can be marked by our team, saving you time.
Yes, participants can analyse their performance and game position relative to other participants throughout the program. They can use this information to improve their game strategies and decisions. Participants can also view their ranking movement from the previous round to see if they’ve improved.
For our online simulation program, we require participant’s email address and first name to setup unique login details. For in person events, we only require participant first names for the attendance list.
Yes, a complimentary player guide will go out to all participants before the program start date. This allows participants to prep and gain an understanding of the program expectations before it commences.
We also have post program options that assist participants embed their learnings further after the course. Although the program will hugely uplift participant knowledge and understanding, learning reinforcement is important post program. Our recommended post simulation activity is an AI learning platform that helps reinforce the top behaviours and skills you need your employees to retain. Contact us to discuss the costs of these post program options.
Yes, we can add your company, university or program branding to the platform to enhance the user experience.
Anyone who is currently working or considering working in the banking industry. We tailor our programs for all knowledge levels. We have programs for students and grad-level employees who have low levels of banking experience. We also have fantastic programs designed for c-suite and board level participants who want to test leadership capabilities across different scenarios.
We run simulation training events across the world with majority of the sessions being held in Australia. We collaborate with you to find the perfect venue for your team. We can run training programs in your company space or at an external venue depending on your size requirements.
All of our session planning has COVID-19 precautions in mind, we will ensure participants have enough space for safe social distancing.
