October 14, 2021

Pluralsight LIVE keynotes

Pluralsight co-founder and CEO, Aaron Skonnard, kicked things off by driving home how being a tech leader today is as much about solving the people and processes challenges as it is about solving technical challenges. With the Great Resignation, the increasing prevalence of remote work and many more unforeseen forces affecting organizations everywhere, the time to solve those people and process problems is now. 

Following Aaron were Gary Feierabend, Head of Engineering Transformation at Manulife; Allison Horn, Global Head of Talent at Accenture; Sam Kroonenburg, co-founder of A Cloud Guru; Sejal Amin, Chief Product & Technology Officer at Khoros; Anil Dash, CEO of Glitch; and James Clear, author of international bestselling book, Atomic Habits. If you missed any of these keynotes, no worries! You can catch them on-demand.

“It can seem strange that a tech company needs to build tech literacy. When you take a step back, you realize people are highly specialized, but we need them to build their fluency across different technologies. So you need to balance breadth and depth, because you need both.” 

- Allison Horn, Global Head of Talent at Accenture
