Upside Learning sponsored the inaugural annual CLO Summit 09

December 2009

Upside Learning recently sponsored the inaugural CLO Summit India, which addresses the organisational learning & development scenario in India. The summit witnessed the presence of eminent speakers and leaders from the Human Resources and Learning & Development.

The first panel which discussed whether there is a need of a separate CLO in an organisation today was excellent. The CLO, who is a domain expert in learning and organisational development, is the key to enable the achievement of an organisation’s vision and business goals through the proper development of its workforce.

Some of the other subjects discussed at the event were ‘Learning in Multicultural environments’ and ‘The role of R&D, Innovation and Learning in today’s dynamic organisation’. These sessions brought out different perspectives and that was great for the audience. The audience itself was participative and contributed to a better understanding for everyone with its questions and comments.

We are happy to be associated with this event. It has generated great enthusiasm around the topics and we see it becoming bigger next year.
