Moments of Success

2017 Events

We are passionate about helping customers choose the right solutions, at the right time, to yield the best results. We organize workshops on the latest developments in eLearning, drawing from our experience working for organizations in 30+ countries. Until last year, we were conducting seminars only at customer locations in the US, India and Europe.

This year, we decided to conduct similar events for the Learning & Development fraternity in general. Our events in 4 Indian cities and in Zurich, Switzerland during March-April were a resounding success. We followed this with learning seminars across 4 US cities in Sept-Oct.
