Our Mission

To improve performance through truly personalised coaching

We started Marmot Labs because we believe training and coaching should adapt to how you learn. After all, everyone’s learning curve is different, and our experiences are so varied… so why do all training programmes look the same?

We realised that virtual reality held the key to that individualisation. VR can create an almost infinite number of scenarios, so letting us personalise the training to individual needs.

And since VR can be experienced in private, it lets the ideal platform from which to overcome your fears. Many people deal with fears by avoiding a situation for as long as they can, in the process blocking their personal and career development. 

It’s really expensive to expose yourself to situations you’re afraid of – for example, if you have to give a speech tomorrow to 200 people, will you rent a hall and 200 actors? That’s where virtual reality becomes the perfect solution: an affordable, safe environment in which to practice.

This, coupled with our artificial intelligence system gives an unprecedented individual coaching experience.
