Ignite program from Lidr has impacted a lot the Tech team at Bridge for Billions! One of our Tech leads had the opportunity to enroll in the program, and in just a few weeks, he was able to unleash hidden potential by learning key tools and skills in a very actionable course. Right after the Program ended, our colleague brought a lot of new ideas to our team, took the initiative, kicked off some blocked projects, and proposed changes to improve our current processes. More than that, he shows more thorough leadership while mentoring others, causing a snowball effect of soft skills sharing in all our team.
