Why are the Perspectives 2020 in-person events in Orlando, Delhi and London being redefined to a global 24-hour digital event?

In response to the real threat that COVID-19 represents globally, and as businesses make the prudent decision to limit or even halt travel during this period of uncertainty, we are recommending a fundamental change to Perspectives 2020: going fully digital. Our customers’ safety is our first concern and reinforcing their workplace safety is paramount to our mission. By shifting, we promote sustainable practices that are smart for our business and our customers.

Will I receive a refund if I already registered for an in-person event?

Yes, all registrants will receive a full refund for their event registration fee. Refunds began processing on March 10, 2020 and will be completed by March 12, 2020. It may take up to 5 business days to see the funds appear back on your credit card after the refund is processed.

What is the process for cancelling my hotel reservation?

Attendees are responsible for canceling any hotel or airline reservations on their own with their travel providers.

What will happen to proposals submitted for speaking sessions at the in-person event, now that it is being redefined?

The digital event will be a different format and length than the three in-person events. As such, we will review the submissions received to date and evaluate if the content can be modified for a virtual format. If so, we will reach out to you and ask for your involvement.

Will Skillsoft & SumTotal hold in-person events in the future?

How much does the Perspectives 2020 digital event cost?

Perspectives is free for all attendees.

  • Interactive, insightful and fun
  • Open to all and without borders
  • Flexible
  • Easily shared

Are the IMPACT Awards still happening?

Yes – with some changes. We’ve reimagined how we recognize our amazing clients and the pioneering ways they nurture learning and talent development for their organizations. Inspired by this, we have designed our awards program to celebrate Customer Programs of the Year around the world, with one for each region: North America, India, EMEA and APAC. We’re looking for recommendations, so please reach out via email to by April 24th.

What platform will the Perspectives 2020 digital event be held on?

The backbone of the Perspectives 2020 digital event will be the Intrado platform. It offers a rich set of tools and multiple live streaming possibilities that will allow attendees an exciting, seamless online experience. Attendees will receive a link to the platform in advance of the event.

Will the Perspectives sessions be recorded and available for playback at a later time?

Yes! While we encourage viewers to join live to access the full event, many sessions will be recorded and available to access on-demand post Perspectives 2020. Be sure to register to gain access.
