Vicki’s Scoops for September 15

Ok friends, happy Friday! The Snoop is headed to Scottsdale tomorrow as our team prepares for EdNET 2017, and I sure hope you are headed there, too. It will be an amazing time, both in learning from the programming planned and with that all-important networking. I hope you have your sessions and appointments planned, but before you head out, check out the scoop I have for you this week and some last-minute EdNET messages….

Matt Doherty, who was President of Academic Benchmarks until the company was acquired by Certica Solutions in early 2016, has announced the formation of The Trailhead Group, an advisory firm serving the learning, workforce, and economic development sectors. Matt tells me he aims to apply his experiences building Academic Benchmarks and his close work with executives at AB’s nearly 200 client businesses to help growing companies develop practical strategies, focus their execution, and construct the right team as they forge ahead. Matt is currently building out his client portfolio, and anyone working with him will be very fortunate indeed! Send him congratulations on the new venture and connect with him regarding his services and work at matt@thetrailheadgroup.com.
