At Learning Technologies 2020 Learning News spoke to Degreed’s Nick Christian, Vice President of Sales in EMEA and Sarah Danzl, Head of Communications, for all of the latest about Degreed.

We asked Sarah and Nick about their recent acquisition of Adepto and what that means for customers, about the broader challenges in learning and development and about Degreed’s priorities in the year ahead.

Sarah Danzl explained: “The unique value proposition for Degreed is our focus on the user. We have a user-focused, employee-focused learning platform and with the acquisition of Adepto we are now able to tie learning and skills to the workforce opportunities that include the entire workforce, which really does set us apart.”

On expansion internationally, Nick Christian pointed out: “EMEA and Asia-Pacific are two of the biggest growth regions for Degreed and we are going to continue to add capability into those regions. Not just sales capability but all of the other teams that support our clients to successfully deploy and implement Degreed.”
