Team Empower:

Before we get into specifics, we would like to mention one quality of our team that really sets us apart. Our team has a Army Veteran at the helm. Defence personnel are known for their discipline, leadership and team building skills. But there is more to being an army officer. The onerous task of safeguarding the sovereignty of the nation is fraught with risks; and perhaps there is no other profession where trust, teamwork and effective communication can mean the difference between losing lives and saving them. Our founding team has joined forces and combined their learnings from their highly demanding, yet deeply enriching profession to come up with programs that can benefit one and all.
