2016 EMEA Skillsoft Perspectives: Empower, Accelerate, Transform

By Tony Glass

The countdown to the 2016 EMEA Skillsoft Perspectives event has begun!

Bringing together learning, talent and HR professionals to share and discuss how learning and talent management drive performance and deliver business value, EMEA Skillsoft Perspectives has gained a reputation for delivering best practices and advice on the big issues affecting learning and talent management today.

This year is no exception. We’ve lined up an agenda that’s packed with topical updates and guidance, all designed to increase your personal and professional knowledge.

The 16th Perspectives event will take place on 16th June 2016 at The Grange, Tower Bridge Hotel, London, and we’d love for you to join us.

Event highlights

We’re excited to announce Bill Donoghue, President and CEO of Skillsoft will present the opening session at this year’s EMEA Perspectives. In his talk he will set out the future of our content, as well as share exciting news about Skillsoft’s content delivery platforms and a major addition to the SumTotal Talent Expansion Suite.

Lord Jim Knight will deliver the conference keynote speech and will discuss the role disruptive robotics technologies are playing within the development landscape.  Lord Knight of Weymouth has been a member of the House of Lords since 2010 and served as a minister under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.  He is a visiting Professor at the London Knowledge Lab of the Institute of Education.

You will be able to visit a demo pod and see for yourself how Skillsoft and SumTotal’s solutions are growing to meet the learning and development consumption needs of the Millennial generation.

John Ambrose will join us once again to share an exclusive sneak peek into how SumTotal continues to deliver innovation, ensuring your people have the modern tools they need to meet the changing demands of business. You’ll also hear from Kieran King, our VP Global Customer Insight at Skillsoft, on what’s trending in the talent and learning industry – and how HR teams can take advantage of these trends to respond fast to shifts in business strategy.

Plus, Skillsoft and SumTotal customers will share insights on how they’re tackling the challenge of enabling greater organisational agility and enhanced talent engagement in the face of rapid changes in the marketplace.

Let’s get together

Perspectives is a great place to grow your professional connections and benefit from the experience of others. As ever, we’ve built in plenty of opportunities for you to network with innovative and inspired executives who, just like you, are focused on optimising the performance of their organisation’s most valuable asset – their people.

It all culminates with a dedicated Networking Afternoon Tea following the conference activities.
