SEAC (Southeast Asia Center), ASEAN's first and only lifelong learning centre, operates under its mission to infuse people with a lifelong learning mindset and curiosity to discover boundless possibilities by developing "Lifelong Learning Ecosystem" that inspires growths and changes for a better today. SEAC firmly believes that "learning is endless, and everyone can learn at all stages of life". Therefore, every human being should never stop learning so as to acquire knowledge, skills and potential amidst the changes of today's world.

SEAC joins hands with world's leading learning institutes with expertise in many fields such as Stanford Center for Professional Development, Stanford University; The Arbinger Institute; Tirian; and The Ken Blanchard Companies, etc. for the development and creation of learning methods to achieve the ideal Lifelong Learning Ecosystem, which will boost ASEAN's efficiency and productivity as well as the prosperity of ASEAN community at large.

Mrs. Arinya Talerngsri, Chief Capability Officer & Managing Director of SEAC, said that: "We are determined to develop and elevate modern organisations in order to catch up with the changes in the new millennium through our programmes and thinking process related to Leadership and Innovation, already gaining positive feedbacks from both public and private leading organisations which also include banking and finance, real estate, FMCG, energy and healthcare businesses, to name only a few. Altogether there are 30,000 people taking up the programmes with 40 service offerings."

"With 27 years of experience, we are aware that many people do not fully understand and are not able to distinguish between the context of learning and studying, making it difficult for them to access true learning methods that could help them reach their potential. Some are entangled in their own traps to the point that they believe they do not require further learning and development. SEAC aims to create a turning point by offering a new 'learning' alternative. The world is changing rapidly, so people should never stop learning new things or acquiring new skills. Our programmes are to expand to more people, whether they're in the work force looking to developing new skills to advance their careers, fresh graduates discovering their own selves to build their own future, or even operators of small- and medium-sized businesses looking for stability," said Mrs. Arinya.

Mrs. Arinya added that: "With our experiences in learning and human development, SEAC has created a highly effective learning approach called '4Line Learning' in order to meet the requirements of each individual while at the same time, to stimulate their desire to learn and apply what they learned to their life and work amidst aggressive changes. The learning approach comprises of four major components. First is 'Online learning' which makes learning accessible anywhere, anytime, on any device. Second is 'Inline learning' where learners are encouraged to participate in classes and courses, arranged at a suitable duration - mostly short -  of no longer than half a day. Third is 'Beeline learning', underlining experience and data exchange with experts, speakers, prominent business operators, thought leaders as well as through special activities that best suit each learning topic, and fourth, 'Frontline learning' where learners are allowed a full access to downloadable materials and data to support real-life implementation."

"In this initial step, SEAC is collaborating with the world's leading institutes in setting up a learning curriculum entitled "YourNextU" which comprises of Online Learning courses, Inline Learning programmes, Beeline Learning activities and Frontline data archive allowing unlimited downloads. The programmes include, but are not limited to, Design Thinking: Empathising to Discover Opportunities, Creative Connection: 7 Creative Problem Solving Strategies, New Me New Land: Overcoming Change Resistance, The Outward Mindset: Seeing Beyond Yourself, Strategic Thinking: Business Modeling, Step In Leader: Problem Solving & Decision-Making or HR Academy. There are courses that have also been set up to catch up with the world such as Business Management 4.0, Data Analysis, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Cloud computing and Web Service, to name only a few. All these are expected to be officially implemented by February 2019 in Thailand, May 2019 in Vietnam and July 2019 in Myanmar," said Mrs. Arinya.

SEAC has invested up to 19 million US dollars covering the development of a learning platform which incorporates the "4Line Learning" approach that will be consecutively updated over the course of 3-5 years, the search for world-class partners for the development of the courses and curriculum to fulfil all aspects of learning for all age groups, translations of contents into languages in the ASEAN region such as Thai, Vietnamese, Burmese, and more in the future. At the beginning, SEAC will target towards the organisational level in ASEAN and will also spread out the message to create perception and awareness to draw attention from those who are interested and have the passion for learning and development to join SEAC in the future.

"SEAC firmly believes that every human being must never stop learning and developing their life potential and that they all want to create a positive change in themselves, their organisations and the society. Therefore, everyone needs to be aware and understand how to learn, unlearn and relearn with new mindsets especially amidst the world of Disruption. That said, SEAC strongly wishes that we could serve as an important centre for lifelong learning where everyone is allowed to think and shift mindset as well as create Lifelong Learning Ecosystem in the society to reach the Learn Fast, Fail Fast and Move Forward culture. This is all for the advancement of themselves, of the organisation and of ASEAN's present and future," Mrs. Arinya concluded.
