“We were excited to have the opportunity to create a powerful learning experience for Bank Audi’s employees. As an early-adopter in the Middle East, we were keen to see how their teams tackled one of our ‘flight simulators for bankers’.” Said Michelle Katics, BankersLab CEO. “We were very impressed with their skill and dynamism when presented with the challenge – and the result of a 93% course satisfaction speaks for itself. We observed that participants improved their ability to detect various cause and effect relationships in the portfolio as they advanced through the simulation. We also enjoyed seeing lively and meaningful engagement between senior leaders of different parts of the business”.
