Within three years the business has trained over 26,000 people across Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, India, and Argentina, in 90 different subjects. Mithun has also led a development team of business and academic experts to develop an innovative school programme that uses gamification and immersive technology to address this need. Called ‘Skills 21’ the programme immerses students in real scenarios that require them to develop, use and reflect on critical 21st-century skills. The programme has been implemented in schools across Dubai and is integrating across institutions in Africa, Asia, and South America in 2017. Previous to this, Mithun’s career has been in the professional skills and development industry where he has worked with some of the top businesses in this field, particularly in the African region.
