Last October, FLOWSPARKS announced its partnership with the South Africa-based Ceed Learning, a specialized provider of customized e-Learning solutions and designer of digital learning ecosystems. On June 1, FLOWSPARKS hosted the first ‘A Taste of Learning’ event with Ceed Learning in Johannesburg, South Africa. This allowed interested L&D professionals to get up close and personal with the product; from the authoring tool itself to the complete FLOWSPARKS Suite.


A Taste Of Learning

With ‘A Taste of Learning’, FLOWSPARKS wants to inspire and enthuse L&D specialists from different sectors with exciting case studies and keynote speakers while enjoying a drink and a bite. This event has already met with great success in Belgium (DegustatieDag) and the Netherlands, because of which the company decided to extend this type of event internationally. Armed with a mission to spread its particular brand of digital learning in South Africa, FLOWSPARKS went to Johannesburg with all its in-house expertise to attract new international customers and convince them of the many benefits FLOWSPARKS has to offer, together with Ceed Learning.

‘The collective expertise and enthusiasm that everyone brings to the table every day made for an unforgettable first event. Together with Ceed Learning, FLOWSPARKS highlighted its strong USPs here. Together with our partner, we are ready to explore new horizons on the African continent’, said Cédric Herregodts, CCO FLOWSPARKS.

The first South African ‘A Taste of Learning’ scored a big name in Nicky Verd. Nicky is an international keynote speaker, and author of the popular book ‘Disrupt Yourself Or Be Disrupted’. She is a true ‘Thought Leader’ on innovation through personal disruption. At ‘A Taste of Learning’, she shed light on how to break the status quo.

‘It’s rare for a partnership of this nature to appear almost effortless, and it shows that FLOWSPARKS and Ceed Learning have a similar philosophy and approach of working together. I’m sure that future clients will experience the same’, said Bernadine Sprighton, CEO of Ceed Learning.


Belgian 'DegustatieDag'

FLOWSPARKS is still moving ground on Belgian soil as well. At roughly the same time as the South African event, the Belgian counterpart of ‘A Taste of Learning’ took place at Quartier Papier in Zaventem. At its ‘DegustatieDag’ events, FLOWSPARKS gives Belgian customers and prospects a taste of what e-Learning can do for them. During the summer edition, L&D specialists were able to gather inspiration and insights for potential e-Learning development through breakout sessions. FLOWSPARKS had those breakouts hosted by its Customer Success Coaches, who are the driving force behind the support model of the FLOWSPARKS-Suite.

International expansion

FLOWSPARKS has been building an international partner network for some time. At the end of last year, the FLOWSPARKS team was present at DevLearn – the renowned L&D convention in Las Vegas – with partner GuyKat. In fact, with GuyKat, FLOWSPARKS is also making inroads into the UK.

Moreover, the partnership with Cornerstone has also led to some positive results: especially with Cornerstone being the established player it is on a worldwide level. They offer FLOWSPARKS’s content creation in combination with the Cornerstone Talent Experience Platform: two of the absolute best solutions in today’s HR market.

Recently, FLOWSPARKS also partnered with Rise Up. The prominent LMS/LXP platform, coupled with the FLOWSPARKS authoring tool, gives the best of both worlds in terms of more personalized content and training modules.
