What we are not

We are not a traditional training organization. While we see immense value in traditional classroom based training, we know that there could be better ways of doing things.

We deliberately redesign our corporate training courses to ensure that they will be done in the most effective way possible. Training courses tend to lose their value if the knowledge gathered is not retained properly. We address these by introducing new and fun approaches to learning. We incorporate concepts of game design, we use learner centered approaches to teaching, we maximize technology to augment the learning experience. The result is a very memorable  training course that participants would love to take again and again. ...
