Keystone Bank produces the highly successful and intellectually stimulating business reality programme that held Nigerians spellbound in every of its 39 episodes; bringing families together in what became a weekly “MBA Class” in living rooms across the country. At the close of the show, the bank offered employment opportunity to the ten participants on the show.
Can the wheel be reinvented? “Inspired Brilliance” says yes, if it redefines usage and value: The Intern redefined the Reality TV genre as communally edifying, constructive yet entertaining, encouraging an abiding capacity for “accepting no limitations” in business as well as in life.
While promoting the values and excitement of entrepreneurship to Nigerian youths, Keystone Bank’s The Intern Academy also created another milestone in the Bank’s commitment to education and the Nigerian youth in particular. It also nurtured a new crop of emergent leaders.
An independent research survey carried out by a foremost research firm, Research International, underlined the show’s uniqueness: an astounding 95% of respondents profiled agreed that it was a very educative programme.
