Staff Training and Workshops for your Business
At Academy Xi, our mission is to optimise your organisation’s culture and performance through concise, actionable training in the fields of human-centred design, digital business and emerging technology. New ways of working and the emergence of new technology are creating skill gaps within teams, which can lead to internal friction, poorly designed products, systemic customer service failures and weak market traction.
Academy Xi helps your people thrive in these new environments, instead of being left behind.
We have training solutions for staff at all levels, including:
- Individual employee development (upskillers, practitioners, leaders)
- 1-2 day team trainings
- Project-based team training
- Bespoke programs
- Onboarding experiences
- Organisational transformation solutions

Client success stories
What our clients say
“Academy Xi is my learning partner not my learning provider”
Clare Di Leva
“The training was a tailored experience, to ensure that all team members would get something out of it, and felt engaged”
Our team came to Academy Xi for some group training in UX & Service Design. The purpose of this training was to help establish common practices and outputs for the team. The training was a tailored experience, to ensure that all team members would get something out of it, and felt engaged.
It was a great team building exercise, and really helped us agree on methodology - which in turn helped us have a common approach within the workplace - which helped enormously in streamlining our approach.
“a level of learning and enjoyment rarely seen”
Academy Xi bring an energy and passion to education that creates a level of learning and enjoyment rarely seen. They played an integral role in our Tech4Good Challenge Program - providing instructions, content development and class management to train our non-profit partners in Service Design, Product Management and User Experience Design. I would highly recommend Academy Xi as a training and development partner if you are looking for an industry-leading experience.
“great team building exercise”
The Intro to Human-Centred Design course was a great team building exercise. A lot of interesting concepts were covered. My team also got the opportunity to collaborate with participants from other divisions on problems specific to our organisation (as opposed to hypothetical problems). Every participant got something useful out of the day.
“We saved a significant amount of money and got the same, if not better, outcome”
It feels as if there is a reflex built into Academy Xi which is ready to meet the critical talent needs of businesses. They provide access to talent that is easy to stand up and which may only be needed for a discrete period of time. We saved a significant amount of money and got the same, if not better, outcome than we would have had we gone through a traditional agency.
Our collected thoughts on what we think the future of work looks like from digitisation to design. From data to digital imposter syndrome.
Override ‘business as usual’ thinking
Good leaders understand that high-performing teams are only possible with strong foundations. Setting a platform success includes making sure that all team members subscribe to a shared language, set of practices, tools and mindset. In the wake of organisation-wide digital, data-driven and design-focussed change, managers are faced with ensuring that their team isn’t left behind.
