Hi, we're Zambesi
We connect learners to experts for short, exceptional, face-to-face courses in everything.

Whether you want to keep ahead at work, you’ve found a new challenge or simply want to know more, Zambesi has a course for you.

You’ll learn in a small group from someone who actually does what they teach. Our experts have all spent years honing their craft and earn their living doing it.

Online learning won’t let you ask questions, and conventional adult education takes too long. Zambesi connects you to an expertly run course near you, and lets you learn face-to-face in small group courses that are no longer than two days. Tick, tick, tick...

Our pedagogy:

Our approach is based on current academic research from the US (Newman) and Australia (Gore). This research found that the most effective way to acquire substantive skills and ideas is to learn:

1. Face to face in a small group.

2. With an expert who can connect knowledge and experience with the current real-world context.

3. In a condensed format that focusses on central concepts deemed crucial to the topic.

4. Through a program structure designed to deliver pre-stated outcomes including deep knowledge and the practical application of skills.

5. In an environment that fosters inclusion and contribution of all participants.

Our workshops

We believe that entrepreneurship is best taught by entrepreneurs. Zambesi harnesses the specialist talents, skills and experience of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs including the forces behind Shoes of Prey, HiPages, Canva, TEDx Sydney, Big Commerce, Showpo, Hey You and many more.

Our workshops provide:

• Exclusive access to the best minds in business.

• Personalized support in a small-group environment (classes always limited to 12 participants).

• A condensed format of one or two days.

Each workshop is designed to deliver a set of outcomes that are outlined upfront in the course promotional material. You will walk in with a clear understanding of what you will achieve; you will interact with the expert and other participants to develop your skills; and you will walk out of the workshop with a personalized plan.

Our workshops focus on current topics and are constantly being updated as the world evolves.

Are you an expert?

Zambesi is expanding across Australia and New Zealand in 2018. We are always looking for new workshop topics and experts with a passion to share knowledge.
