The Global Cloud Skills Tour is a part of an exclusive C3 event series. In 2019, the Leading Learning Partners Association (The LLPA) introduced “C to the power of 3”, a cloud certification circle model that incorporates training, certification, reporting and nurturing services that are offered together by its 33 leading learning members and Pipeline to accelerate knowledge worldwide.

The C3 Global Cloud Skills Tour aims to address the cloud skills gaps by ensuring all existing and future cloud customers have the technical skills needed to be successful. Tech intensity requires skills intensity! We need to revolutionize the way we skill our workforce!

This event will include keynote sessions, workshops, panels from Microsoft, LLPA, Government, Companies and IT/Learning experts that have demonstrated advanced knowledge and understanding on how new learning processes can support growth of IT units in businesses.

* By 2022 businesses will require proactive and inventive workplace strategies to help the 54% of the workforce who will require upskilling or reskilling. It is time for a rise in stronger, more collaborative learning ecosystems where professionals are equipped with the right skills for their job role. This will align talent management strategies across businesses to maximize the available opportunities and capitalize on the transformational trends of cloud technology and the Fourth Industrial Revolution – World Economic Forum
