With Upside’s commitment to helping L&D leaders understand how deeper learning experiences can aid learning retention and learning transfer for their workforce, I feel this is an excellent opportunity for both parties.”
“I have always been passionate about enabling L&D to deliver on the promise of evidence-based learning practices to create deeper learning experiences.

Amit Garg, Founder and CEO of Upside Learning, expresses, “With our vision for L&D to ‘Go Beyond’, Upside Learning embarked on a very interesting journey a few years back, which was fueled by a better and deeper understanding of the learning science and research. We made remarkable progress and are at a key stage in this growth journey right now.”

I am ecstatic to have Clark take up this role. His rich experience will help Upside Learning and its clients alike. With Clark’s support, we hope to enable L&D teams within our client organizations to be seen as strategic partners for their companies’ growth and not merely as internal solution providers for learning.”
