Skillsoft unveils 2013 Global Skillsoft Perspectives learning industry event agenda

By Melynda Hilliard, Manager of Events, Skillsoft

Only two months until the 2013 Global Skillsoft Perspectives Learning Industry Event! We are excited to announce our event agenda, which includes topics for learning sessions, workshops
and keynote addresses by marketing provocateur Seth Godin and employee relations expert Peter Cappelli.

The theme of this year’s conference, which will take place
May 13 – 16 in Orlando, Florida, is
“Learning Transformed.” Skillsoft hosts
the yearly event for our customers and prospects to network, interact
and learn from each other in a collaborative
forum focused on innovations in the learning industry.

In his keynote presentation, Pick Yourself: Success, Impact and Relevance
in the Creative Economy,
world-renowned speaker and author Seth Godin will share his vision of the
new creative economy and how professionals can draw out the discretionary
qualities of initiative, creativity and passion independently, and from those
within organizations to build competitive advantage in a turbulent marketplace.

In another keynote address, Managing and Growing Talent: How to Get the
Right People in the Right Seats When you Need Them
, Professor Peter
Cappelli, director of the Center for Human Resources, Wharton School of
Management, will reveal how to plan for talent needs through a culture of
continuous development and learning. Peter
will discuss how to think about the
fundamental choice between “making” talent from within,
“buying” talent from the outside market or “borrowing” it
from staffing firms and other vendors.

We look forward to hearing from both dynamic
speakers and are excited provide attendees with the opportunity to engage with
other customers, industry leaders and experts in an exclusive environment that
promotes an atmosphere of sharing ideas and best practices. Panel discussions
and customer learning sessions will feature global customers including UBS,
Verizon, Xerox, Tata Consultancy Services Limited, General Electric, Lloyds TSB
and many others.

In addition to customer learning sessions,
workshops led by industry thought leaders will discuss benchmarking, ROI,
L&D budgets and reporting standards. Additional workshops will cover topics
such as LMS, learning culture, talent management, social learning, blended
learning and employee engagement.
