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.

Director OD Operations, Talent & Organizational Development, HR, Telstra

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.
