“I haven’t seen this much disruption in corporate learning since I started as an analyst back in the early 2000s. The L&D profession and function has fallen behind, and it’s time for L&D to focus on digital transformation, learning experience design, and open peer to peer learning like never before. The new digital world of work is here.” – Josh Bersin

What a year 2017 has been. Talk about disruption, here at The Skillsoft Group we’ve undergone a complete metamorphosis.

Corporate learning, no the very experience of being an employee, is being radically reshaped and it’s an exciting time for everyone, but particularly for those of us involved in HR.

I’ve seen us design and create such new ways to learn and new ways to manage a workforce that is now learning is always on, always available and learners can engage in ways unimaginable in the past.

Perspectives, our annual conference, is an amazing few days when customers get the opportunity to talk to us, to each other, to industry leading CLOs and other prominent thought leaders; a time to experience hands-on training; a time to party with your peers and a time to be recognized for your innovation and hard work. But this year I’m even more excited about it. This year we get to really show everyone how we have focused on producing the solutions, the content and the products that will meet the demands of the digital workplace; we get to show Learning on-demand.

Vegas has been our home for Perspectives for a couple of years now, and we can’t think of a better place to return to for 2018.

If in the past it was something special, this year it is something extraordinary. Everything we’ve had before we now have multiplied.

2018 will be our biggest, our best yet.

As the Director of Events, this does mean a few more sleepless nights for me, but I know in the end it will all be worth it.

We’ve already opened early registration, and if you think your organization should be recognized for their innovative ideas, powerful programs or there are some inspiring leaders who are helping to transform the corporate learning and talent management landscape, please submit to be considered for one of our awards.

Find out more information and to take advantage of the early bird registration rate.

Caryn Baker is the Director of Events for Skillsoft.
