Graphic recording is a part of Visual Practice. It records and visually archives information from a live conference, training or workshop onto a large canvas. Applying graphic recording in a session helps  to increase and deepen the appreciation of learning.

Recognized by our clients for our graphic recording capabilities, we have established a graphic recording unit called Lakar (i.e. sketch in the Malay language). Our in-house graphic recording talents are ever-ready to take up graphic recording gigs for conferences, forums and strategic retreats.



At neOOne, we believe that graphic facilitation processes enable greater engagement—leading to deeper conversations, clarity of thinking and understanding. It also infuses creative energy and makes sessions more exciting!

Our graphic facilitators are not just skillful in managing group dynamics, but are adept at aligning decision making with the desired objective, while using visual tools to engage people in the process.



Magnet and Boomerang is the publishing arm of neOOne.

We aspire to create all the aids necessary for learning and development (L&D) practitioners such as books, e-books, games, tool kits, training manuals and facilitator’s guides.



neOOne Center for Accelerated Learning ( NCAL) is a learner-centric space designed for just that. Every detail in the learning space has been carefully curated—the large windows that let in natural light, the wooden floor, the creative murals, the size of the space, the varied music selection, the aroma from essential oils, the coziness of the breakout rooms and even the attention to hygiene.



Ontological coaching is neOOne’s brand of coaching.

We believe that with ontology as a coaching philosophy, we can support transformation in how you lead your life, and in how you can contribute to an organization, to community and ultimately humanity. It helps people to connect to their self and others and in doing so creates meaningful breakthroughs in personal relationships.

The Social Enterprise Academy Malaysia is a social franchise from Scotland.

We are part of an international network of hubs providing learning and development for people and organisations enabling social change.


Accelerated Learning (AL) is a systemic approach to facilitation that draws on interdisciplinary research and best practices to provide a roadmap to guide us in creating learning programs that have lasting positive impact.

AL begins the process of learning support before participants come to a learning program and supports learning on the job and in learners’ life.

Systemic: AL provides processes to determine how different aspects of the system effect the learner and the learning (i.e. family, culture, organizational structures, their cognitive belief system, their paradigms, values and norms, etc.)

It includes a variety of methods to work with limiting factors in ways that enables a shift in thinking, the development of critical and innovative thinking, and more effective actions and behaviors. It creates the kind of learning that fosters deep learning and transformation.

The design element in AL is represented by the AL cycle which is used to design the impact that is needed for the learning program. It is a SIX phase cycle that comprise of the LEARNER PREPARATION phase, the CONNECTION phase, the ACQUISITION phase, the PRACTICUM phase, the INTEGRATION phase and the APPLICATION phase..

AL is also supported by seven pillars that allows deep learning to happen in an AL environment. This seven pillars are: FACILITATOR, ARTS & CULTURE, BELIEF AND MIDSET SHIFT,LEARNER CENTRIC, ENERGY MANAGEMENT, TECHNOLOGY, REVIEW STRATEGY, INTERACTIVITY, AND PLAYFULNESS.

We believe experiential-led learning is the key to facilitate an empowered learning experience.

Experiential learning enables the learner to appreciate their learning experience by processing it cognitively, through feeling and reflection of their experience.

neOOne’s EL Philosophy is inspired by Kolb’s Learning Cycle: “Learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience. Knowledge results from the combination of grasping experience and transforming it.” –David A. Kolb (1984)

Game-based Learning is a form of structured play that:

  • stimulates experiences congruent to the experiential context of a pre-determined learning objective.
  • encourages learners as it triggers lively discussion on learning concepts.
  • bridges the knowledge gap among learners in a light-hearted and fun learning environment.
  • We use Human-centred Design for all our consulting work.
  • It is a framework that allows us to make sense of the design challenge before we propose learning and development solutions.
  • It maps out the ecosystem of problems faced by our clients and creates clarity for them.
  • In neOOne, we use the LUMA Method—a system of practising human-centred design—to develop solutions for clients.
  • LUMA is great for our human-centered consulting work as it offers a vast array of tools and techniques for solution design.

“Juara & Yasmin” are my favorite trainers with no doubt. Because of their trainings are the best trainings I have ever been to. Amongst the few of the trainings that I have been part of, HackaDev Training of Trainers programme is one of the most meaningful training programs since it made me realise the thought process behind the design and delivery of HackaDev Social Innovation Camps in such an attractive and impactful manner. If further made me understand how much preparation is needed on designing and delivering a training and how to prepare for the training properly. Amongst all, it was much more important to learn that “It’s all about the participants”, and to focus on giving the highest importance to the benefits received by the participants. Also, the discussions and Q & A sessions gave me a lot of knowledge and insights on how I can improve my designing and delivery skills. Above all the improvements and insights this is the only training programme that helped me to understand my self and to further empathise on the beneficiaries to get a meaningful impact. Therefore, I’m always grateful to MaGIC Malaysia for introducing these amazing trainers to us.

When we are human BEings, why have we not thought about who we have to BE to DO something to HAVE something. One of the biggest learnings I had through the training. Never did I think that personal characteristics matter so much when we want to do or achieve something. Juara and Yasmin didn’t teach us what to do at training. They taught us how to do training. The science behind every single word being said. The concept behind every single twist and turn. I feel this is much more important as this helps us to understand the context. Thank you for inspiring us. Thank you for making us better trainers. Thank you for making us better people.

“The learning journey with neOOne happened by accident, when we worked together a graphic recording project for ICBOS 2016. Then I discovered this centre also provides learning programs for trainers and facilitators, something that I have looked for a long time! Practical and affordable programs, great ambience and a great place to network too! Thanks for this great opportunity and creating this platform for those who are in the learning and development industry. Keep it up and all the best!”

Hal Mahera Ahmad Senior Researcher, Razak School of Government

“It’s all you, yet it’s not about you!” my biggest reflection from the HackaDev TOT. I felt this experience to be the most honest training I have undergone so far. The training heavily relied on the facilitator’s skill in enabling an honest learning experience, yet it was all about the learner. One of the things I really appreciated about this training is, the time invested on the learners’ journey. Even though at times I felt so vulnerable, at the resolution, I know I am more self-aware, insightful and empathetic. The entire process was treated with so much integrity that it was evident that this was not just another training for the resource persons-but a lifestyle. It was adult education as I have never seen before! Full of activities, fun, games and through all of that there was always something to learn and more importantly… Experience. I am truly grateful for the balance of developing our Ways of Being while and giving enough tools to implement. It was a joy to learn the method to the madness. And I look forward to using the knowledge and experience in the future. – Bohoma Isthuthi (Thank you!)

Sadhani Rajapakse National Professional Officer: Psychosocial Wellbeing, WHO Sri Lanka

The Training provided by neOOne trainers over four days is one of the best trainings I have ever been to. The learning was very stimulating and brilliantly taught. Interesting case studies were discussed over the four days along with well-designed subject matter which made for interesting group discussions. The training was well structured and organised, which helped me to accept the new knowledge fast. The trainers were direct and very extraverted, helped us see the meaning of the context. Their energy and passion kept the room alive. They were excellent in conveying knowledge and inducing thought. We had the chance to present and hear feedback. I very much enjoyed this training; it was extremely useful and enjoyable, and I would definitely recommend it to future students.
