Gearing up for Perspectives 2012

By Melynda Hilliard

Here is another Perspectives 2012 update from Melynda Hilliard, SkillSoft’s Events Marketing Manager. After nearly one year of planning, the event is just around the corner. Perspectives will take place April 30 – May 3, 2012. For more details, visit here: http://perspectives.skillsoft.com/2012/index.asp.  

Perspectives is fast approaching!  We’re so excited to have more than 1000 customers registered for the event – this is more registrations than we’ve ever had before! Our customers will receive valuable insight from our presenters and have the opportunity to share best practices with their peers.  We’re so excited to see our customers and enable them to develop innovative learning programs.

The theme of this year’s conference, is “Motivate, Innovate, Learn: Driving Value Through Learning,” and will include customer-led learning sessions, workshops and a keynote address by General Stanley McChrystal, former Commander of U.S. and International Forces in Afghanistan.

In his keynote presentation, Plywood Leadership: Lessons on Leadership from a Warrior, Statesman, and Scholar, General McChrystal will address key leadership principles such as transparency and inclusion, leveraging the power of teams through shared ownership, evolutionary change versus revolutionary change, relentless mission focus, and the importance of sharing a clear vision.

Customers sharing their stories

The learning sessions, presented by customers such as General Electric, Unysis and Accenture, will include case studies of existing learning programs, and the workshops  will cover topics such as third party LMS, marketing, learning governance, blended learning and impact analysis.

Honoring organizations that inspire learning

Also during this event, the 2012 Innovation in Learning Awards winners will be announced.  These awards honor SkillSoft customers for their significant achievements in e-learning, recognizing innovative ideas and inspiring leaders who are helping to transform the learning landscape.  The awards gala is a truly special event for our team – it’s very rewarding to honor our clients that have worked so hard all year long!
