The Unconstrained LMS

Enhance your LMS and turn it into an L&D difference maker rather than just another frustrating application.
During this session we will cover the following:

  • No LMS platform can give you everything you need. But you can get more out of your existing platform through Bluewater's technology enhancements without buying into additional SaaS platforms.
  • Enable your LMS to support a variety of unique needs, such as, Onboarding, Skills Development, Compliance Tracking, Career Pathing, Extended Enterprise/Decentralized Management, etc.).
  • Bluewater's unique solutions solve your L&D and HR problems that an out-of-the-box LMS just doesn't.


Chris Bond, CEO & Founder; Curt Swayne, President; and Bennett Jensen, VP Strategic Solutions


12:45-1:15 pm

Worklife is complicated. Your talent and development tools shouldn’t be.

We’ve taken all the disparate HR tech systems you’ve struggled to connect and brought them together into one platform. Our People Success Operating System empowers your organization with data and your people with the learning & development tools they need to prepare for the future of work. Take a look under the hood to see our unique fusion of a best-in-class coach network with a powerful performance management tool and see how SkillCycle delivers the results your people and organization need.

During this event you will learn:

  • How linking learning outcomes directly to performance management improves outcomes for both systems
  • Why SkillCycle’s platform is different and why that matters
  • The future of HR’s role in an organization

1:30-2:00 pm

Using Assessments to Improve Managerial Effectiveness

For over 60 years, assessments and coaching have been done the same way, often falling short because of limited access to results and little proof of ROI. This interactive demo presents a fresh approach to people development. Discover why Cloverleaf is a one-stop-shop for scaling emotional intelligence across your organization, enabling your team to understand each other and perform more effectively.

In this session, you will learn how to:
• Cultivate an employee experience that encourages engagement, understanding, and value.
• Use on-demand coaching to enhance performance conversations and one-on-one meetings.
• Improve the effectiveness of new manager training and leadership development programs


Darrin Murriner, CEO/Co-Founder and Tim Flanigan, VP of Sales

During this event, you will learn:
