Nearly 700 attendees came together for interactive Allego customer conference; Jackson National Life Distributors named 2020 Trailblazer Award winner
NEEDHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nearly 700 sales, training, and learning and development professionals from over 130 leading companies attended Allego’s S3 Virtual Showcase. While Allego holds its annual Sales Success Summit (S3) annually in person, due to the impact of COVID-19, Allego hosted a Virtual Showcase featuring some of the most highly anticipated conference content, including Allego executive keynotes and presentations from customers, including Baxter International, Jackson National Life Distributors LLC and TherapeuticsMD.
The event was a blend of live and pre-recorded content presented in an interactive format. Leveraging Allego’s proprietary technology, conference attendees were invited to watch pre-recorded presentations at their own pace, by changing the playback speed, pausing and rewinding content. This option allowed attendees the flexibility to participate according to their own schedules, without missing content due to distractions that may occur while working from home. The platform also offers a collaborative element, where attendees could add comments and questions for presenters directly into the video’s timeline.

The event kicked off with a keynote session featuring Allego CEO and Co-Founder, Yuchun Lee, and moderated by President and Co-Founder, Mark Magnacca. During the session, the two discussed the increased importance of virtual training to help employees be successful, especially as teams adapt to physical distancing.
“Now more than ever, it’s important to put the employee at the center of your organization and figure out what they need in order to be productive,” said CEO Lee. “We know how challenging these times are for everyone and the value of teamwork and collaboration within the organization is at an all-time high. We built Allego to deliver on this continuum of learning, content and collaboration in the flow of work to help every employee to be as successful as possible.”
The second keynote, presented by Allego VP of Products Andre Black, shared a sneak peak of the Allego 2020 product roadmap, including a preview of Allego 6, one of the most comprehensive platform updates in the company’s history. With a focus on helping employees learn in the flow of work, Black’s session highlighted the importance of call coaching, more customizable learning paths and smarter content curation that aligns with teams’ actual usage, behaviors and outcomes.
