Love, work and knowledge are the wellsprings of our lives
they should also govern it.
EXI was founded in 2004 by Louise Earnshaw, as the developer and owner of accredited courses, courseware and training services in Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Skills.
Whilst the services were located primarily in the vocational education and training (VET) sector, the methodology was a powerful psychological intervention.
EXI was established as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to deliver Certificates and a Diploma of Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Skills across Australia in partnership with schools, TAFEs and community organisations. EXI's entrepreneurship courses taught students how to turn a hobby or passion into money and were recognised as successfully engaging marginalised youth, people and communities in sustainable earning, learning and cultural preservation.
All of EXI methodologies are based on empirical research having been developed from the founder's PhD investigation into the similarities between successful entrepreneurs and at-risk youth. In 2005, the suite of courses were the only accredited entrepreneurship courses in the Australian VET sector.
In addition to trauma and critical incident response, Employee Assistance and therapeutic services, EXI's current products include courses, courseware, train-the-trainer training, professional development and mentoring in transformational psychology and social business development.
