“This [was] my first visit to the U.S., as well as this kind of learning forum, and I can tell you it’s amazing.”

Ameet Kumar, Manager, HRD, Syngene International

“One of the things that struck me was how different companies approach the [Skillsoft] products and get different things out of them. That’s a great benefit that you get when you come to something like this…you find out.  You hear what others are doing and learn from their experiences to better utilize the product mix for your own staff.”

John Hollon, Vice President of Editorial,

“I’ve come away from this conference with a lot. It’s really around aspiration for what we ought to be able to achieve with our broader strategy for the company—certainly around measurement. I’ve met some great people; we’ve heard some great speakers—enjoyed the keynote speakers in particular.”
