Clever Desk: Bringing Out The Greatness In You

We are absolutely thrilled to announce the official launch of Clever Desk, a trailblazing company revolutionizing the field of learning and development. Founded in March 2023, Clever Desk emerged from the visionary minds of industry veterans with nearly two decades of expertise in strategically aligning training and development with the ever-evolving needs of various industries. At the heart of Clever Desk lies our unwavering passion for revolutionizing the way individuals learn, fostering personal and career growth.

The company’s founders firmly believe in making a meaningful difference by providing
transformative learning experiences. Having witnessed the shortcomings of conventional
approaches that often neglect continuous improvement, the team at Clever Desk is
committed to elevating the effectiveness and impact of learning.

As Benjamin Franklin once wisely said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember,
involve me and I learn”, Clever Desk embodies this philosophy, actively engaging learners to
create an immersive and impactful learning experience.

“We firmly believe in the reciprocity of learning and teaching,” said the Founder of Clever Desk,
Prem Anan BalaSubramaniam. Humans learn every day, from each other and from their
experiences. “In learning, you will teach, and in teaching, you will learn.” These words from Phil
Collins beautifully capture the essence of Clever Desk’s mission to foster a dynamic learning

“At Clever Desk, we believe that the prevailing notion of knowledge providers being limited to
experienced, famous, and high-ranking individuals is fundamentally flawed. Everyone has
knowledge to share and the power to guide and inspire others. Our mission is to empower
individuals from all walks of life to become contributors and catalysts of knowledge exchange”,
said Prem Anan.

Clever Desk is here to reimagine learning by challenging the core ideas surrounding it. We
deeply contemplate and question the learning process itself. We ask ourselves critical
questions: Are we truly engaging in meaningful learning? Are our learning experiences making
a tangible difference in our lives and the world around us? We recognize that the modality and
topics we choose play a pivotal role in shaping the effectiveness of our learning experiences.
As such, we are relentless in refining and innovating our approach to ensure that what we offer
is relevant, engaging, and meaningful.

Our primary focus is on measurable outcomes and tangible growth. We evaluate the impact
of our offerings by looking at the real-world application of the knowledge gained. It’s not just
about attending sessions; it’s about translating that learning into genuine improvement and
personal development.

Clever Desk functions as a comprehensive one-stop centre for learning and development,
catering to both personal and career growth. The company is built upon four major pillars –

Revolutionizing Learning With Transformative Experiences

As we embark on this journey of reimagining learning, our ultimate goal is to create
transformative experiences that inspire lasting change. We aim to empower individuals with
the tools they need to continuously learn and grow, ensuring that the pursuit of knowledge
becomes a lifelong endeavour, echoing Mahatma Gandhi’s words, “Live as if you were to die
tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
At Clever Desk, we firmly believe in the transformative power of education. Our goal is not just
to provide information but to facilitate growth, improvement, and meaningful change in individuals. By reimagining learning and continuously striving to make a difference, we aim to create a learning environment that truly empowers individuals to reach their full potential.
