Project: Develop and Nurture Community of Practice (Google Educator Groups) 

Summary: In early 2014, Google and Bon Education formed a partnership in the region to co-develop the UAE Google Educator Group. As part of this initiative, we developed a professional development curriculum and trained more than 300 UAE educators in English and Arabic on how to use Google Apps for Education to enhance teaching and learning. From that initial training, Bon Education helped identify a cohort of “lead teachers” to receive ongoing training and support from Google and Bon Education on Google tools and global best practice use.

Results: These leaders are now working in communities across the UAE to lead education technology trainings and events in both English and Arabic.

Freedom Pizza

Project: Training Consolidation & Employee Empowerment

Summary: Freedom Pizza (formerly known as N_K_D Pizza) is one of the fastest growing pizza outlets in the Middle East. As more and more people in the region fall in love with their selection of healthier and locally tailored pizzas, the Freedom Pizza corporate office is excited to expand the number of outlets across the region. As a result of this, employee retention, motivation, training and leadership development are a high priority and requisite for growth and expansion. In search of a learning and development partner, Freedom Pizza asked Bon Education to collaborate on the creation of an employee training and leadership development program.

After spending time with the Freedom Pizza senior management teams, Bon Education met with several Freedom Pizza employees to better understand the learning and development needs of the pizza makers, drivers, phone operators and store managers. We also visited outlets during down time and rush periods and ate lots of Freedom Pizza as part of our research process. The output of our work was the delivery of a multi-level, interactive training and leadership development program that will educate and empower employees as they grow with the business.

Results: All training materials were updated and revamped according to educational best practices. Staff capacity was developed to ensure successful implementation of the new training regime.

Shelter Dubai

Project: Community Education & Empowerment

Summary: The entrepreneurial spirit in the Gulf is alive and growing! As such, there is a huge need in the region for spaces where entrepreneurs can affordably launch their start-ups and for educational programming and networking events where entrepreneurs can meet collaborators, mentors and potential customers. With these needs in mind, enter The Shelter Dubai – a work and event space tailored specifically for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the region. Bon Education was the education advisory team to the space.

Our team helped design and curate educational programming and events at The Shelter Dubai. With a focus on the learning needs of entrepreneurs and small businesses in the region, we brought in regional and global experts and learning facilitators from organizations such as Samsung, the MIT Media Lab, Harvey Nichols, Virgin Megastore and a host of small business owners to teach, tackle and discuss issues relevant to The Shelter Dubai community. The Shelter Dubai space and educational programming have been written up by the BBC, The National, WAMDA, Wallpaper Magazine and The New York Times.

Results: Shelter Dubai engaged thousands of Dubai community members through its programming and partnerships. Shelter also inspired the opening of many similar spaces around the city, following or building on the Shelter model. Although now closed, Shelter’s impact on the city can still be felt.
