"I am currently attending as a participant in the first group to go through The Academy and it has been a great learning experience from the beginning! We are implementing SWP at my company and learning from the experts at The Conference Board, as well as industry practitioners, and my fellow cohorts has added teeth to our SWP approach and tools. The Academy has been much more effective than the conferences/seminars I've attended this year. They offer a range of innovative and cutting edge approaches which you can select from and apply to your company. I highly recommend this program whether you're just starting out or if you have SWP in high gear. The program is top notch."

I am quite satisfied with the SWP Academy, and think that participation was worth every single penny invested in it. We have joined the Academy with 4 members from Telenor, including two representatives from Telenor Headquarter (Norway), and two from the operational Business Units (Hungary and Malaysia). Those were the times when we have been rethinking our SWP approach in the company, and some quality time for brainstorming, practice reviewing, challenging ourselves was highly required. We had to step out of the box. Stacy Chapmen, the Academy Head, was an inspiration, and the practice sharing among the Academy members was very useful. The ideas we have received in the Academy have been implemented now in Telenor Group with high appreciation from the key business leaders. But what is more important, is the connection with the Academy members that remained. I can now contact a number of top notch SWP professionals whom I know in person with the question “Hey guys, can you help me…”, and I will get a professional advice. So, big thanks to the Academy and its organizers!
