“Sessions will be a major disruptor and trendsetter in the skills-based education market over the next year with its DigitalComplete™ platform,” said Neil Edwards. “I joined the Sessions board of directors because it is one of the few education companies that have the ability to execute on launching new digital focused programs, expand into the corporate reskilling market, and go international. Sessions’ DigitalComplete™ platform is the secret sauce that gives it the edge to move out aggressively where other companies may not. I look forward to helping to drive its strategy and execution plans in this exciting period of their growth.”
