"Because the future speaks many languages", AFB’s mission is to train global citizens who have essential skills for success in the workplace.

AFB’s solutions are based on the latest research in education and motivate trainees in order to boost their ability to learn. A motivated trainee learns three times faster than an unmotivated trainee.

Our efforts involve creating stimulating training environments that let trainees be active and responsible for their own learning.

The success of AFB’s training, after more than 70,000 hours of experience, can be explained by the following principle: training must motivate people in order to be effective.

The methods that we use focus on:

› The ability to effectively meet specific training needs
› Creating content adapted to each and every trainee
