As I reflect on our second full year since the introduction of INDEAL University, I am feeling humbled, grateful, and inspired.
Throughout my 20 years as a learning specialist in the contract furniture industry, I continue to admire those learners who really show up to learn, enhance their career and consequently, their life in general. These are the industry superstars – their commitment to ongoing learning is relentless. One might think that there must be a time when they can just kick back and rest on their laurels. Not so. Not this group. Their thirst for knowledge remains unquenched.
It is no secret that 2020 has challenged us in ways we could never have imagined. Yet, when COVID hit you didn’t just show up, you doubled down on your attendance! Our learners come from all areas of specialty – sales, designers, customer experience reps, project managers and installers – otherwise known as the dream team that brings it all together to punt that punch list.
In our second full year of live sessions, you accumulated 515 hours of learning. In September we launched our INdustry INsights virtual sessions where guest subject matter experts present solutions that are relevant to what your customers need NOW. Show up? You sure did – in droves! This is impressive, to say the least.
On behalf of the INDEAL U team, we extend our heartfelt thanks to you for choosing us as a valued partner in your learning journey. Continue to provide your input into future learning experiences. We value this most and are vigorously exploring and designing future content that will address your real world challenges.
Our focus is YOU. Our passion is YOU. Our commitment is to YOU and once again, we thank YOU!
Keep movin’ and shakin’. You are all superstars to me.
