“I’m really excited to welcome so many customers to understand our vision for the future of eLearning. I believe Perspectives will provide an excellent opportunity for business leaders to hear best practice, exchange ideas and develop strategies to incorporate into their organizations,” said Skillsoft CEO Bill Donoghue. “Representing 65 percent of the Fortune 500, our customers are leading the transformation in the way we work and how we maximize talent. Our speakers will demonstrate the real world application of our solutions and how they contribute to performance improvements and, ultimately, the Self-Developing Organization.”
