Skillsoft and SumTotal Offer Global, Digital Learning Experience for Perspectives 2020

Skillsoft and SumTotal have announced a fundamental change to their annual learning event, Perspectives. This year, Perspectives 2020 will be fully digital. Historically held in different regions around the world, the event will be a live, virtual experience for attendees globally and will run over the course of 24 hours.


As businesses make the decision to limit travel as a result of COVID-19, Skillsoft will unite learning, talent, and business leaders across organizations and industries with this one-of-a-kind event, setting the standard for how conferences can be translated into global, digital experiences.


“The safety of our customers and employees is paramount, and we have a responsibility to do what’s best for Perspectives attendees,” said Michelle Boockoff-Bajdek, Skillsoft CMO. “Digital learning is at the core of our business and moving to an entirely virtual and global experience is a natural extension of what we do every day.”


“We have an opportunity to shift our thinking entirely. Whether it be digital transformation, a remote workforce or COVID-19, the ways in which we work, collaborate, and learn makes business continuity possible and requisite,” continued Boockoff-Bajdek. “As we broaden the Perspectives experience this year with a live, digital event, we will democratize learning, providing access to interactive keynotes, engaging executive sessions, and exclusive content to learners around the world. Skillsoft is a global company and we believe our event will showcase that digital-first is the future, and our future.”


The reimagined, digital-first Perspectives 2020 event will be held on May 13 beginning at 9 a.m. AEST in Sydney (7 p.m. EDT on May 12) and ending the day at 4 p.m. PDT in San Francisco (7 p.m. EDT on May 13).


The 24-hour, interactive content will include:


  • Head-to-head live debates on hot topics
  • Keynotes from pioneers of learning
  • Actionable approaches to building a learning-obsessed culture
