I wanted to thank you for all the coaching and mentorship you’ve provided me during my time at Xelay. Applying the technical and presentation skills that I learned in Xelay, I was able to impress not only my direct manager but also higher level executives including the Vice Presidents at Samsung Electronics. After completing just my third month at Samsung, I had the good fortune of being promoted to lead the business operations department of planning within the Galaxy Store. I’m convinced this would not have happened if it were not for the training I received in Xelay. I‘m really looking forward to applying the leadership and management skills that I learned from Xelay in my new role. I sincerely thank you for all the training!

I feel fortunate to have started my career at Xelay right after college. In 18 months I learned things that may take me years to learn elsewhere (most likely I will never learn them elsewhere). Soon I will start working at one of the oldest and most prestigious strategy & management consultancies, and the senior people there were surprised to see the skills I displayed during case interviews. I owe 100% of these strategy and management consulting skills to Xelay.

As a McKinsey consultant, I am awed by the super structured and efficient problem-solving, astoundingly CRISP and synthesized communication, and seamless cross-functional collaboration happening ALL THE TIME at McKinsey. It wasn't until I finished my first McKinsey study that I "truly believe" a lot of things learned at Xelay, which now gave me a HUGE head start and for which I am forever grateful.

As an alum I'm 2-3 weeks into my new role, and I'm already recognizing and enjoying the value of the skills I acquired at Xelay. I've been working closely with the executive team, and I'm receiving a lot of appreciative feedback for learning things quickly and being prepared for meetings, etc. I wholeheartedly thank Xelay for the countless hours of training and unfailing support.

It has been 6 months since my last day at Xelay, and I had the opportunity to work at a much larger global management consulting firm. However, I can say with confidence that after I left, 80% of my professional growth came from me revisiting the things I learned at Xelay. Looking back at my Xelay days, I regret how I did not pay enough attention and try my very best to master the skills taught by Alex and other senior Xelayers. Although you, current Xelayers, may not realize it now, those skills/mindset work anywhere in the world, and I guarantee you that you can easily become the top performer at any other firm if you learn them well. So try to believe and act the way Xelay teaches you to. I know it seems so incredibly difficult (sometimes impossible) for now, but you will be thankful after you leave.

Regarding the development I received at Xelay Acumen, I want to express my most sincere gratitude for all that I learned, including but not limited to the structured problem solving approach, effective communication skills, empathy for others, etc.

I joined Xelay after graduating college with medical school as an option, but I didn’t want to commit to the long and challenging process of medical school without knowing all the opportunities in medicine and whether or not I had the skills to succeed. My time at Xelay has answered both of those questions. Working at Xelay has taught me the ins and outs of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and healthcare companies—expanding my views on what I can do with an MD. I have engaged on projects with MDs at senior level positions in healthcare companies and also practicing physicians who are leaders in their fields of medicine. Xelay has taught me strategy and management consulting skills that are paramount to succeeding in not only medical school, but my entire career. With those skills, I have been able to create tremendous impact early in my career and can take those skills with me throughout my medical training. The training I received on professional development and interpersonal interactions is integral in any professional setting, especially a demanding career in medicine. Xelay provides leadership training, and the environment to practice those skills. Because of my work on many team-based projects, my ability to communicate, organize, and lead has grown immensely. Xelay has without a doubt provided me with a huge advantage as I pursue my career in medicine.

As the year of 2019 passed, I was reflecting on the big moments of my life. I realized that most, if not all, of those big moments were influenced by the learnings from Xelay. Last year, with the new job, I was fortunate enough to get two promotions. Since I expressed my gratitude for the first promotion to lead business planning, I got promoted again to additionally lead the home tab (main tab of the app store) merchandising. This was only possible as I was able to apply influencing skills that I learned during my period as a Chief of Staff in Xelay. I cannot thank you enough for all that Xelay has done to develop me. Now that I work in a bigger firm where individual development is not as important, I realize even more how much care and sacrifice you made for our development. Thank you again, and I hope you and Xelayers’ have a joyful, healthy, and successful New Year!
