Skopje, 17 March 2021

Proudly hosted by

We’re excited to invite you to the first C3 Global Cloud Skills Tour in Skopje proudly brought to you by The Leading Learning Partners Association

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 32 leading learning members to accelerate knowledge worldwide.

“Contrary to popular belief, digital transformation is less about technology and more about people. You can pretty much buy any technology, but your ability to adapt to an even more digital future depends on developing the next generation of skills, closing the gap between talent supply and demand, and future-proofing your own and others’ potential” – Harvard Business Review. The C3 Global Cloud Skills Tour aims to address the cloud skills gaps by ensuring all existing and future cloud customers have the technical and soft skills needed to be successful.

Although we would prefer to see you all in person, it is not possible at this time, and our journey of knowledge sharing and providing valuable insights must continue. So go on, join over 2,000 chief learning officers, business decision-makers, HR professionals and Azure technical and consulting leads at a local virtual C3 event in Skopje.

KEYNOTE: Digital Transformation is about people

Digital transformation requires a mindset shift, behavior change and leader support. Implementing the latest digital processes and tools will not achieve much if people within the organization don’t adopt a digital mindset. There is no argument that digital transformation involves the addition of new technology, but people are what allow the transformation to succeed. Technology is an enabler of digital transformation; people bring digital thinking, tools, and processes together.

When you focus on equipping the workforce with the knowledge, training, and leader support required to develop a digital mindset and skillset, lasting digital transformation and success of your cloud journey can become a reality.
