What our acquisitions say…

Dave Jenkins from CEC discusses their experience with the acquisition process, and how it’s been since joining learnd

Since joining learnd, CEC’s sales pipeline and opportunity has grown significantly. We’ve been able to win more projects due to that partnership – but equally we’ve been able to deliver projects more quickly as well. After the acquisition CEC’s staff saw very quickly that the cultures aligned, and have noticed further benefits of being part of a wider group.
