We are confronting a completely changed landscape with a flood of job seekers ... we have to transform quickly, for the good of our clients and candidates.

Change the KPIs
Anna Hua
"We are hired based on our skills and experience but not on our ability to learn. This must change if we are to have any hope of making learning a lifelong activity. The model of resume + experience + testing for skills must now be evolved with a fourth aspect which is motivation to learn and the skill of learning how to learn."

Game Summary
Surprising moments
A super diverse group of six players converged onto LevelUp HQ on Collins St in our first post-COVID lockdown, socially distanced studio game hosted by Gary Fernandes.

Sparks flew early on with a number of left-field pitches in the Lightning Round that threw open the floodgates of creativity. An especially engaging Fantasy Round provided plenty of raw material to craft final solutions. Six very different but compelling final pitches leaves our sponsors and investors with a difficult task!
