We’re pleased to bring you a guest post from our APAC region − Kath Greenhough, a Learning Strategist in New Zealand.
By Kath Greenhough
We have just farewelled the last of the Skillsoft New Zealand customers after our two-day Perspectives Highlights event in Auckland and Wellington on 21 and 22 June. It was great to see all of our customers
gathering together to “Motivate, Innovate, Learn” and to “Drive Value Through Learning.”
As in previous years, we welcomed new organizations on their elearning journey. We are privileged that our customers chose to spend time with us to help develop their thinking and strategy in learning for business results and learning from each other. Attendees represented a range of industries – Manufacturing, Construction, Education, Government, Health, ICT, Telco and Financial Services.
Glenn Nott, VP and Managing Director, Skillsoft Asia Pacific, addressed the full events on both days, highlighting some of General Stanley McChrystal’s keynote presentation from Perspectives in the U.S. Without yet seeing the event survey responses, I’m expecting this to have been a highlight for many attendees.
Skillport 8 was another popular and much-anticipated announcement, judging by the questions and resulting discussions. Skillport 8 contextually organizes relevant and aligned learning around the user instead of the traditional course-catalog approach of other Learning Management Systems (LMS); thereby supporting when, where and how people want to learn.
Thank you to all the customers who attended. It was an amazing event in each location and we look forward to seeing many of you at the next APAC live event – 2012 Skillsoft Perspectives Australia on 15 and 16 August in Sydney. For now, continue the global SkillSoft Perspectives conversation on twitter #SSP12.
