SGEN First in the Country to adopt new accelerator program to improve graduates’ career readiness

The Southville Global Education Network (SGEN) is adopting the Winning in the Work World (W3) Accelerator Program to equip its students with skills that will enable them to avoid work adjustment difficulties at the beginning of their careers and be visible in their workplace to conquer the working world.

W3 founders Stephen Krempl and Lau Kok Yin conducted a two-day Train the Trainers session with SGEN faculty and officers who will coach students in demonstrating the correct behavior and attitude when opportunities arise in the workplace. Given this training and support, fresh graduates of SGEN will be able to adapt and successfully integrate themselves into their new work environment. 

“Our goal is to offer a transformative experience that will enable our students to communicate more confidently, connect personally, and engage their prospective employers effectively. The W3 Accelerator Program will enable students to receive individual feedback on how they can improve the way they come across to employers. It is action-oriented and highly interactive,” said SGEN College Director Rolly Donato.

The W3 Accelerator Program will be integrated into the institutional courses of SGEN,  incorporating a combination of live and virtual sessions with online program content. The program is engaging and interactive with strong and relevant content that will help SGEN students win in the work world even as they transition into a new environment or role.

It is developed by the international trainer, speaker, and author, Stephen Krempl, who was Chief Learning Officer at Starbucks Coffee Company and worked with Fortune 500 companies such as YUM Brands Inc., PepsiCo, and Motorola. He is now CEO of Krempl Communications International where he is joined by Managing Director, Lau Kok Yin, who carried out successful executive searches in the Asia-Pacific region working for PA Consulting, Citicorp, and Reuters.

The content includes developing the participants’ executive presence and professional branding by heightening their awareness of self-image and style of communication. They will learn how to connect personally and professionally and express their points of view confidently while knowing the difference between coming across as negative, neutral, or positive. Through real-world exercises and drills, they can practice skills in leading, managing, and working within global organizations.

SGEN schools will be the first in the country to adopt the W3 Accelerator Program. They include Southville International School and Colleges, Southville International School Affiliated with Foreign Universities, South Mansfield College, Stonyhurst Southville International School – Batangas, Stonyhurst Southville International School – Malarayat, South SEED – LPDH College, and Asian SEED Academy of Technology.
