Newly launched iLx Centre brings a rejuvenating twist to the learning experience [Exclusive Photos]

by | Jul 28, 2016

Today’s episode of Office Tours got me, my lens and team dropping by Venia Group, owners of the popular Venia Business Hub we toured earlier this year and AutoGenius. They recently launched an integrated learning experience centre called The Integrated Learning Center (iLx Center).

iLx Center offers learning consultation to individuals and organisations that come use the space to get the desired outcome for which the individual/organisation put together the program. It’s a themed learning centre that has each room designed to reflect the stages of learning  using the 4 elements — fire, water, earth and air.

Its time to shush and let my lens do the talking

The training rooms

Welcome to Ignis

Ignis, which is Latin for fire, signifies the application stage of learning. Get up, take a step, do something with what you have learned.

The furniture isn’t fixed thereby allowing flexibility in terms of arrangement. From having a group breakout arrangement to a board room atmosphere, the conversations in Ignis are expected to get people to take steps.

Since inception, the iLx Center, has been used by companies like Uber (for partner meetings and driver training sessions), FCMB, ARM and other companies for training and meetings.

We design learning experiences, not training. That is why every room has a theme. A training session is not all about what you learn in class; we try as much as possible to create spaces for people engagement and capacity building – Eyitope Kola-Oyeneyin, Director of iLx Center

The iLx Center plans to have strategic retreats and masterclasses targeted at SMEs. Such programs are focused on capacity building without burning holes in companies’ purses. For them, everything is a design question that needs to be answered.

The iLx Centre sure brings a new twist to the learning experience or what do you think?

Do you think your office is cooler? Invite me to take a tour through my lens.
