LearnSG Seed Fund – a $3 million fund set aside for 1 year – aims to grow community-led learning initiatives. We are looking for ideas that:
Build and promote lifelong learning culture
Impart and encourage work and life skills learning
Benefit the community and Singapore
No idea is too big or too small. Get funding for up to 90% of project costs, capped at $50,000 (whichever is lower).
So, get together with your friends, neighbours or community and bring your learning ideas to life.

Community-led learning begins to happen when an individual learner or a group of learners drive the learning experience. With this as our ultimate aim, we take the first step for practitioners and leaders to initiate and lead learning by the community, with the community. In the process, could practitioners derive and enjoy value and benefits?
Welcome to a fully hands-on and practice-based workshop. Bring along your laptop as it is powered by social learning so as to better synchronize with the learning styles of our modern society. For practitioners this creates a valuable opportunity to freely experience a blended model and effectively share their expertise with the community.
Digital on boarding, understanding the background, sharing your motivations, DIY community learning and sharing outcomes are some of the topics covered through an elongated learning experience that begins in-class and continues online.
Practitioners and learners also learn about and may tap into a LearnNow Seed fund to initiate and contribute towards creating shared learning outcomes.
Let us together embark on this journey of community-led learning. Get started now and play an active role in shaping the culture of lifelong learning!
To discover own intrinsic motivations
To create a road map
To DIY a digital blended program
To initiate practice sessions
To go-to community
Participants should bring their own laptop to enjoy the social learning experience.

Sales Enablement Consultant helping sales performance improvement
Are you a Senior Business Leader or Owner in Sales or Business Development, Sales Training, Sales Effectiveness, Sales Enablement, Sales Solutions, Learning & Development, HR or Marketing who is involved in your organization's revenue generation strategy?
A recent research by Sales Executive Council showed that the driver that contributed to the greatest customer loyalty was "purchase experience" (53%). Unfortunately, Forrester's online survey pointed out that only 1 in every 7 sales visits usually live up to the expectations of the buying executives. It's more astonishing to find out that 88% of the salespeople are very prepared to talk about their own company and products and only 29% of sales professionals understand about the customer's business and problems.
This has led to a significant decrease of spending to less than 20%. While there is an increase in competition and the global economic climate is very challenging, that poor "purchase experience" resulted in even lower win rate and ultimately created more obstacles for sustainable growth.
Despite these stern statistics, Senior Business Leader or Owner like you can leverage on a systematic sales performance improvement approach to help your team to create a unique "purchase experience" for the customers, increase the win rate and "fast-forward" customers' decision making process.
As the Founder of Sales Blueprint, I've helped thousands of top Executives to significantly accelerate sales and marketing growth through blended learning with sustainable behavioural change.
We have a great passion for sales performance improvement. We also love to empower sales professionals and challenge their thoughts in reaching a "shared understanding" with the clients.
I hope I can be a good resource to you. Scroll down to the "publications" to locate the eBook link to discover the 7 costly mistakes 80% of the sales people make that is costing companies hundreds of thousands of dollars.
