Welcome to our first newsletter!

With our 7th anniversary celebrated just a month back, the timing of our first newsletter couldn't have been better. Looking back on the past 7 years, it gives me immense pride to see the way Upside Learning has grown and created a niche for itself in the eLearning domain. I take this opportunity to thank and congratulate all the people who have been a part of this journey.

Coming to us, with a new corporate identity, back to back events, webinar and a new product launch, the pace of activity over the past couple of months has been breathtaking. But we are loving every bit of it! And with more conferences, webinars and other events planned for the rest of the year, we are ready with our sleeves rolled up.

Here's a quick snapshot of the various things you will find in our newsletter. You can read our thoughts on the hottest topics in the learning domain; get the latest scoop on the new developments and events in Upside; and stay in step with the latest happenings in the learning industry.

Besides this, we have also thrown in some freebies for you to download.
