The Professional Development Program (PDP) is a program developed by BCA Finance to form individuals who are ready to work. The program itself is intended for fresh graduates or individuals who have a maximum of 1 year working experience.

This batch was themed “From Talent to Excellent” which consisted of 17 energetic and enthusiastic young people. The training is held from 7 June – 18 July 2018 located at Wisma BCA Pondok Indah which is also the headquarters of BCA Finance.

This program has a series of processes, ranging from focus group training, heliview, on the job training, internal training and the final project.

It was found that the results of each participant were quite unique and interesting, some made holograms, mobile apps, and others.

The Data Analysis topic helps participants in processing data and analyzing using IBM Watson software. This material took place interestingly as seen from the enthusiasm of the participants. They learn to process data and get information from the processed results.

Mastering The Storytelling that Sells, this topic teaches participants how to compile ideas, data, and information they already have into an interesting story that can influence others. This material also helps participants to package the story to be more interesting.

Conquer your Audience, on this topic participants must present a business that sells. This topic also teaches how to do pitch decks.

In the coaching session, the facilitator directs participants to make the final project from the material that has been obtained, starting from ideas, data, stories, and presentations.
