DENVER, COLORADO, USA — 8 October 2020 — WDHB, Inc. announces its acquisition of
Experience to Lead, LLC, effective 2 October 2020. Both companies offer experiential
learning programs for people and strategy development, with which they serve Fortune
Global 500 clients. WDHB, based in Denver, with offices in Paris, Shanghai, Singapore and
Zurich, has been in the L&D market for over 30 years, pioneering the Learning Expedition
and other immersion-driven formats. Experience to Lead builds on over 10 years of
leadership in experiential learning and its association with The Conference Board to build
unique immersive leadership development experiences inspired by iconic places and
moments in history. By coming together, the two companies are expanding their current
portfolio and help their clients access a broader range of learning solutions.

Both organizations’ approaches thrive on the power of compelling stories, authentic first-hand
encounters as well as the personal experience of venturing outside of one’s own world to trigger
reflection, drive conversation and enact change.

Sunil Narang, President and CEO of WDHB stated, “It is these shared foundations and the
complementarity of our skills that will allow us to deliver learning journeys with unmatched variety,
customization and integration to address our clients’ current challenges and meet their
organizational needs.”

The combined organization will continue to provide clients with the same transformative
leadership experiences. “We both share a deep belief in people’s ability to learn and change as a
driver for smarter leadership and better business,” said Dick Richardson, Co-founder of
Experience to Lead and member of the WDHB Advisory Board.

In a joined statement, the two companies anticipate tremendous potential to power clients’
transformation journeys and help them reach their business objectives. They see key
opportunities for the combined organization in a much-extended global reach, a broader spectrum
of in-person, hybrid and virtual formats, greater access to ecosystem partners, expansion of its
experiential learning repertoire, increased scalability and enhanced customization as well as new
approaches for more sustained impact.

“We are excited that these benefits will make a tangible difference in terms of breadth and
outcomes to all of our trusting partners, which include some of the best-known brands and
organizations spanning industries, cultures and continents,” confirmed Samuel Mueller, WDHB’s
Chief Growth Officer.

Referring to the new opportunities that added products and formats bring into the picture,
Amanda Harmon, Integration Manager, stated, “The combined team brings to our expanded
portfolio the same unwavering enthusiasm and commitment to excellence that you have come to
expect from us.”

WDHB and Experience to Lead will be building on the shared experience and knowledge of the
two teams and integrating the latest in behavioral science, experience design and program
delivery.

Chief Strategy Officer, Imane Terrab of WDHB, said, “Crafting purposeful immersive experiences
and leveraging reflection and conversation sets us apart with the focus always remaining on our
clients. To continuously drive change, we retain these aspects at the core of our methodologies
as we incorporate new insights.”

As the organizations come together, they will shape the future of experiential learning.
