Congratulations Yumjirdulam Olontumen!

MSPM student, Yumjirdulam Olontumen was a member of the winning team, Zuulun, during the DC Climathon held on October 25th. Climathon is a global movement, with 24 hour hackathon events held simultaneously worldwide to develop climate change solutions.  This year’s Climathon Challenge sought innovative business, tech, and social enterprise solutions for the end-of-life management of clothing and other textiles. Yumjirdulam’s team pitched their proposal to a team of expert judges and won the contest. Zuulun is repurposing hard to recycle post-consumer textile waste while relieving anxiety for those who face this mental health challenge. The venture provides weighted blankets by deploying a sustainable product life cycle using batting made of felted fabric scraps, and recycled cotton duvet covers. The winning team received cash award toward further development and implementation and will
advance into the GW New Venture Competition. Lastly, the winning team will have a
Mentor Session with Ron Hawk at Looptworks. Congratulations Yumjirdulam and team!

About the Presentation: When Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) has a sound ground in facilitating knowledge learning. Using NLP creates a rapport environment to gain trust from participants. Our audience pay much more attention because they are engaged and empowered to express themselves. The presentation explains the learning process through knowledge flow from an individual, a pair, to a group. It will explain how to use NLP internal representation in auditory, visualization, and kinaesthetic to develop, internalize, and utilize new knowledge. The outcome of the presentation is to enhance facilitators’ skills in relation to establish a rapport environment to have a better understanding of people’s thought processes, behaviours, and language for successful facilitation sessions.
