Aside from the sunshine, there were plenty of highlights at NextSteps 2018 in San Diego during our annual regional user conference. Clients from a variety of industries shared experiences, best practices, and learned more about the evolution of our core products.
The theme of NextSteps 2018 in San Diego was ‘facilitating learning in a connective world”. Our focus was on where the industry is going and how we are going to get there.
With this in mind, we invited a number of technology visionaries to talk about the impact that emerging technologies will have on L&D functions in the future, and all of our speakers provided fascinating insights.
NetDimensions’ 2017 North American user conference, NextSteps, took place in NOLA in May. While there, executives and L&D professionals had the opportunity to discuss new trends and best practices, expand their knowledge in technical and industry-focused sessions and gain new perspectives on meeting talent management challenges.
One of the most popular breakout sessions at the conference was titled, ‘Elevate your brand with HTML homepage widgets and skins: explore what is possible in exercising configurability to create a more engaging user experience’. Its presenters, Ali Zaheer and Garfield Bolt, are both Solutions Consultants for NetDimensions Talent Suite.
Last week we were delighted to spend two days with our clients at Next Steps 2014 in Chicago. Next Steps is our annual user conference and our theme this year was innovation and business results. Innovation in terms of new technologies, tools, apps, practices, ways of thinking that shape how we work and live. New ways to take advantage of the NetDimensions Talent Suite across different functions in the organization. Business results in terms of how learning & talent management technologies and processes link to actual business metrics that are relevant to CxOs. Metrics relating to revenue contribution, cost control, change enablement, and risk management.

October, what a month!! We just wrapped up Next Steps 2013 (#nextsteps13), our global user conference, and it was quite a cross-continent run. We gathered with our clients in three locations – Chicago, Shanghai & London – with more participants than ever before representing over 120 organizations worldwide.
Next Steps is focused on creating value for our clients, but it’s always a tremendous learning experience for us too. Year after year, I come out of Next Steps inspired by the level of innovation our clients are demonstrating on how they use our software in demanding, results-driven environments.
This year was no different …
