You must be wondering - who are we?
We started off as corporate trainers and consultants. Between the two of us (that's Sumit and Maneesh- scroll down for our profiles), we have worked with over 250 companies over the last 20 years in areas of Sales, e-learning, Negotiations, Leadership, Strategy & Service.
Now, to add more value to our clients' learning journeys, we have launched our elearning content creation services that seamlessly integrate with your lms, impact processes & drive business growth.
What do we believe in?
We believe great instructional design is critical to creating a superb learner experience.
We believe learning should impact business results.
We believe that elearning has to be linked to process performance.
We believe that elearning has to be interactive & engaging.
We believe gamification makes sense ONLY if it adds value to the elearning & not just for frills.
We believe that elearning has the highest impact when it is done as a series of events & not just a tick mark activity.
We believe line managers & skip level bosses add tremendous value to a team member's learning journey when they are involved.
We believe that each elearning module should lead to an application on the job which should be coached by the line manager.
Our elearning modules easily integrate with your existing lms.
We believe that elearning can have an immediate business impact when we focus on input parameters as well as outcomes.

Tools we use
Classroom or Elearning?
Classroom - High intensity, better learner experience, higher cost but infrequent, so learners forget.
Elearning - Shorter, easier to run, saves travel time, lower cost, poorer learner experience, much greater adaptability to local language & customization, enables repeat learning & post training implementation.
Blended is what we love - Combination of classroom, zoom & elearning. Touches the learner every ten days, saves costs, can be linked to on the job activities & result in measurable productivity improvement.
Industries worked with
FMCG, Pharma, Paints, eCommerce, IT, Auto, Auto Components, Agri products, Electrical, Banking, Insurance, Mutual Funds & more.
SE Asia, India, US, Canada, UK, Australia & Africa
