Chennai, NFAPost: Great Learning, one of India’s leading EdTech companies for professional education today launched its first Television campaign, ‘Power Ahead’.
The campaign highlights the importance of lifelong learning and showcases how upskilling in a defined field at the right time can help professionals power ahead in their careers. It has been conceptualized and directed by celebrated ad doyens Abhijit Avasthi from Sideways Consulting and Prasoon Pandey from Corcoise Films.
Through this campaign, Great Learning aims to amplify the importance of upskilling as a necessary step towards career progression in the digital economy.
The advertisement emphasises on the fact that just good performance is no longer enough for career advancement. Targeted at young professionals and college students, the ad film revolves around two friends who were once batch mates and now colleagues.
One of them has raced ahead in his career to become the other’s boss with the help of continuous upskilling. In a comical way, the protagonist makes the point that he is ahead in his life as he can do today, what his friend hopes to do tomorrow. The idea being, those who upskill at the right time without procrastinating will climb the career ladder faster, as superior roles require superior skills.
Great Learning Co-founder Hari Krishnan Nair said lifelong learning is the new normal for all knowledge workers today.
“One cannot hope to grow in their careers without learning new skills on a regular basis. In fact, the willingness to learn and upskill is a key parameter that companies are looking for when hiring professionals today. With ‘Power Ahead’ we intend to encourage professionals to aim high, upskill regularly and keep themselves prepared for the big opportunities,” said Great Learning Co-founder Hari Krishnan Nair.
Through this TVC, Great Learning Co-founder Hari Krishnan Nair said the company is engaging in a dialogue with customers, in a language and context that they will relate to – while communicating the company’s core mission to make professionals proficient and future-ready.

“With the world changing so rapidly, in the coming years upskilling is going to be crucial for India and its workforce. Our story brings alive an absolute truth – ‘growth only comes from learning’ – in a relatable manner that most of us have encountered at some point. I believe in an inward-looking, degree-obsessed category, this film is a breath of fresh air,” said Abhijit Avasthi from Sideways Consulting.
