Our additional products and services are aligned with practical learning concepts to enable learners to have the opportunity to apply their knowledge within a practical situation whilst challenging them in a business scenario.
At NACUE, we understand the importance and need in developing front facing leaders and we ensure our programmes are contributing to the requirements of annual student satisfaction surveys such as the National Student Survey (NSS), Graduate Outcomes Survey and Higher Education-Business and Community Interaction Survey (HEBCI) in supporting the recognition which educational institutions rightly deserve.
Interactive workshops introduce methods and co-creation techniques to support learners to build their practical skills and confidence on defining Persona, creating a Value Proposition Map, designing a Customer Experience Map and preparing a compelling 60-second Elevator Pitch.
These workshops are suitable for both further and higher education institutions.
Value Proposition, Persona and Customer Experience Mapping: This workshop will introduce a series of practical tools and collaborative techniques: Persona, Value Proposition Map and Customer Experience Map, in order to enable learners to understand their customers’ needs and break their value proposition down to services and products, pains and gains by stepping into their customers’ shoes in order to design services and products that customers want to experience.
Within the space of three hours, the session will enable learners to apply their practical knowledge to create persona, a value proposition map and design a customer experience map for their business idea by understanding how services work and how they can be improved.
