Success stories and testimonials from Springboard alumni

Testimonials from Handy and Wencan

Success Story from JL

May 14th, 2017|

JL participated in our foundation classroom training in March 2016 and after a period of preparation, she managed to join the investment industry at the beginning of 2017.

Testimonial from 2015 September ATC season

October 30th, 2015|

It is worth sharing a testimonial from our participant Mark: The most effective form of learning is through practice - having said that, I believe the independent basis through which we were exposed to in terms of developing the model really helped me understand the key moving parts of a functional operating model. It was no easy feat, looking through every tiny detail within the model in trying to troubleshoot where and what was keeping the model from balancing perfectly. [...]
