Ana Lucía Escobar

Chief Innovation Officer Future Business Learning

Panama

Ana is the Chief Innovation Officer of Future Business Learning, a corporate language center able to comply with the high standards of multinationals. Future Business Learning teaches English, Spanish and Portuguese to business professionals through the companies they work for. They currently have two product lines—the language courses and the Language Proficiency Assessment. Language Courses, including English, Spanish, Portuguese and Business English, are offered both as closed courses for companies in private groups, either face-to-face or virtually, and open groups at their center. They teach business professionals to communicate effectively in the target language, and they do this by using an active learning approach. The Language Proficiency Assessment measures the language level of employees within a region, and is also used with the recruitment process. Future Business Learning has broken the mold with a professional approach to teaching. They were the first in the region to use projectors within their classes and create effective reports for HR. They are constantly adapting business practices into their operations. In future, they would like to go from local providers to regional providers, and would also like to be seen as language consultants that can be hired when companies are creating corporate, universities and in-house Training. Ana also holds roles as a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach and has been a mentor for Vital Voices Panama Chapter. Her areas of expertise are training, coaching, course development, event planning, innovation and digital marketing. She holds a degree in Graphic Design.

What Ana hopes to gain from the VV GROW Fellowship: Ana hopes to gain advanced learning skills and to join a community of business women.

What Ana can offer other fellows: Ana can share her insights and knowledge of how corporations work for those interested in working with corporations, as well as to share her knowledge and expertise in StrengthsFinder, positive psychology and how to generate ideas for new products or branding.
