    In Their Own Words
    “The conference was very well planned. In every set of breakout rounds, I was able to find a topic that I was interested in and walked away with new thoughts. That’s a testament to SkillSoft given your diverse customer base. I also really got a lot out of the keynotes. Great job, SkillSoft.”
