Employee Experience Practitioner
Welcome to the EX Practitioner Programme
Our work and research shows that employee experience is often a challenging and complex approach to get started with. Traditional methods of learning can inspire, but colleagues have expressed a need to go more deeply into the development of their EX craft, skills, and understanding. Yet, time is precious when our focus is on creating positive human-centred experiences.
This is why we have developed the first virtual EX Practitioner programme in the World, which is based on our original work and research at the forefront of the EX movement.
It is a development experience built to directly support colleagues who are working on the employee experience strategy within their companies or advancing EX within their roles. The certification also recognises your existing experience and your experiences throughout the programme.

Ben's workshop was different than others. It was more of: "walk the talk" - it was a great experience. The content was delivered differently.
The X factor as I see it is: different experience + practical tips to execute first thing in the morning.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the programme open to anyone?
No. To ensure effective learning transfer and real-world outcomes, we find that the programme best suits colleagues already working on EX in some way. This ensures that they can apply their learning directly to their roles, work, and life. This also ensures a positive and shared community learning experience.
How long does it take to become an EX Practitioner?
Participants are required to complete the full programme, which usually takes 6 months.
Do I receive a certificate for my CPD?
Of course. You will receive a certificate confirming your successful completion of the programme. However, successful completion of the programme will also give you access to a unique and life-long community. This is symbolized through a highly meaningful gift once you become an alumni of the programme and an EX Practitioner.
Are there discounts for multiple bookings, charities or public sector organisations?
Yes. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
What timezone do the group coaching calls follow?
We work on your agenda, not ours. Timings for the 'live' sessions will be determined with you and your group members.
How many people are on each group?
This is not one of the those programmes with large group coaching sessions. There is a place for that, of course, but our programme is designed to be in-depth and comprehensive development. Our groups are kept deliberately small to ensure high interaction and strong individual and collective progress with EX.
What if the virtual coaching approach doesn't suit me?
We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. The programme is designed for busy executives and professionals working on EX. It is rare they will get time to attend a one day training or week long course. This approach ensures they can develop their craft, skills and capability in a flexible, but high-impact way.
Will Ben Whitter lead the group coaching sessions?
Yes, Ben is the primary experience leader and will also be joined by special guest faculty during the programme from the World of EX.
This sounds awesome! Can we run this for our company's internal EX team?
Of course. We are happy to run this experience for companies either virtually or in-house, subject to location and availability.
On completion of the programme, EX Practitioners become part of the World Employee Experience Institute (WEEI) community of practitioners. This enables the learning journey and networking to continue well beyond the initial programme.
