Russia, 15 April 2021

Proudly hosted by

We’re excited to invite you to the first C3 Global Cloud Skills Tour in Russia 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 Russia.

Key discussion: "Digital transformation is the transformation of people"

The digital transformation process requires a restructuring of consciousness and the comprehensive support of industry leaders. The introduction of the latest digital processes and tools will not achieve the desired result until people change their habitual patterns of behavior and reorganize to a digital type of thinking. New technologies are making digital transformation possible, but only humans can lead the process to success by connecting digital thinking, tools and processes together. Traveling “to the cloud” becomes a reality when, with the necessary resources, knowledge and leadership support, we find the right tools and reshape old ways of thinking for new demands of the time.
