GROW! toronto 1

At this conference in Destiny Solutions’ hometown, we discussed how to leverage Destiny One to engage learners at every stage of their lifecycle. We also looked at the impact lifelong learning has across the community, and uncovered the trends that are transforming the market.

San Antonio 2016:

This conference was centered around understanding the new learner profile and how it affects non-traditional higher education divisions. This conference also marked the launch of GROW!, a Destiny Solutions online and face-to-face community built to spread knowledge and facilitate meaningful engagements between Destiny One users.

Palo Alto, 2014:

Hosted by Stanford University, this was our first user conference. We looked at how clients could leverage Destiny One to increase corporate engagement, build their conference program, and grow other revenue streams. We also dug into the technology behind Destiny One and looked at the impact of the changing higher ed industry.
