Great Initiative @AaronW !

I have almost a decade of experience in technology sales. I had the opportunity of working on the Anaplan platform briefly before and was quite excited to see the power of the platform and have been passionate about it since then. 

  • What brought you here: I came to Anaplan to self learn and sharpen my model building skills so that I can make a career in Anaplan. 
  • What you hope to learn: Model building skills that I can take back to the real world and get experience on different use cases across various industries.
  • Where you are in the world: Toronto, Canada. Moved to Canada from India not too long ago. Loving it here! 🙂
  • Favorite vacation destination: Banff and Switzerland. Two most beautiful places I've visited 
  • Favorite beverage: Tea, Beer

Looking forward to connecting with Anaplanners!

I'll admit, I had to look up Kulukki Sarbath—but it sounds delicious, and now it's on my list to try for this summer. 

You're in the right place to learn more about how Anaplan does "all the stuff." Let us know what questions you have along the way!

Hi Aaron,

I'm excited to be a part of the Learner's Lounge!

 

I lead the global University Connect program here at Anaplan.  It is inspiring to see so many new learners joining the ecosystem and developing Anaplan model building skills.  As learners work towards earning the certified model builder designation, they are opening doors for amazing career opportunities at both our customer and partner organizations.

 

University Connect has been offering this learning opportunity to educators and students for awhile now, it is outstanding that all individuals wishing to expand their skill set have the chance to do so via Talent Builder.  I love it that all learners can come together in the Learners Lounge.

 

If there are professors or students in the Lounge, I am happy to connect with you to share additional ways to get plugged into the Anaplan network; if there are customers/partners seeking early talent's with an Anaplan skill set I can help there too.

 

I am a learner as well, working my way through the on-demand certification content.  I've completed Level 1 Model Building and The Anaplan Way; and am near the end of Sprint 1 in Level 2 Model Building.  I look forward to collaborating with everyone as we all develop further model building expertise.

 

These days I live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh.

 

I'm a firm believer in any vacation is a good vacation and have a bucket list a mile long of places I want to explore, but if I had to choose one location it would be Hawaii.

 

Favorite beverage - if its during the workday, you will typically see me with a Latte; after hours I'm now exploring Bourbons
