Enter the Dragon: 2015 Skillsoft Perspectives EMEA

By Kevin Young

It might be cold outside, but don’t despair – because we’re getting ready to turn up the heat with an event designed to take learning and development at your organisation to new heights.

This June, 2015 Skillsoft Perspectives EMEA comes to town. And we’re proud to announce our keynote speaker will be James Caan – renowned businessman, self-confessed investor in people with passion and, of course, one of the most charismatic heavyweight investors ever to grace the BBC’s Dragons’ Den. James made his fortune in the recruitment industry before going on to found the UK-based private equity firm Hamilton Bradshaw. Today he’s the current CEO of Hamilton Bradshaw, a columnist for Business Matters, hosts CNBC’s SME business programme series, heads up the government’s young entrepreneur start-up loans initiative – and still finds time to work for a range of charities including The Prince’s Trust, the NSPCC and The Big Issue Company.
