EMEA Skillsoft Perspectives 2018

By Ellisa Harvey

Just how much can you pack into one day?

A lot.

And we have.

On Monday, May 14th we will host our annual user conference, and as always, we want to give our attendees a truly memorable and beneficial experience. We appreciate that everyone is taking time off work, so it’s important to us that our audience leaves feeling reenergised and inspired.

Starting at 9 am, Chad Gaydos, our Chief Operating Officer, will kick things off with an overview of everything we’ve accomplished over the past 12 months. Then Apratim Purakayastha (AP), our Chief Technology Officer, and Mark Onisk, our Chief Content Officer, will delve a little deeper and get product specific making sure everyone is aware of what we are doing now and our roadmap for the future.

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, then takes to the stage to share his thoughts on Transforming Learning in the Digital Age. This is very much a hot topic and something I know everyone wants to learn more about given the accelerated pace technology is revolutionising not just the workplace, but also the workforce.

I’m also thrilled that Harriet Minter, journalist and women in leadership advocate will talk about the female experience and why we still have not solved gender diversity in business. Given the current climate of #metoo, #timesup and other such movements, this topic is particularly timely, and I’m looking forward to hearing not just what Harriet thinks, but what others in attendance feel about this as well.

Like many of you, I consider my iPhone to be an extension of myself, so naturally, I’m interested in hearing what Andy Lancaster, Head of Learning & Development, CIPD, can tell us about leveraging the smartphone for learning.

Later in the day Laura Overton, Founder and CEO of Towards Maturity, is presenting. As 2018’s most influential person in the world’s corporate eLearning sector, Laura always brings a ton of useful data and insights which everyone can use to make 2018 the year for transforming your organisation.

In line with our belief in the power of the consumer’s voice, we’ve invited a number of our customers to come and share their story. We’ll hear from The National Trust, Royal Bank of Scotland, Capgemini, Linklaters, Standard Life Aberdeen and Centrica.

Steve Wainwright, our EMEA Managing Director, will finish out the day around 5 pm ensuring time for everyone to do some networking – which after all is one of the key reasons for attending Perspectives.

I hope to see you all there. To join us, register here.
