What people are saying

Steven Rath Morgan
Global Learning Process and Solutions, Xerox

I've attended Perspectives for at least the past four years in a row. And for the past two years, I've presented at Perspectives. And it's been a great opportunity to benchmark with other companies that are large and have complex learning needs like we do. But also, there's really great presenters here.

I'll come away from this conference with a lot of learnings. And it's really around aspiration for what we ought to be able to achieve with our broader strategy for the company-- certainly around measurement. So I've got a new insight into what we should be measuring, in terms of our reach into our populations.
