Platform Enablement Lead

This year, Connected Planning Xperience (CPX) offers three full days of networking and learning from some of the best Connected Planning professionals around the world. The day before general sessions begin, we’re kicking things off on June 10 by hosting both full-day and half-day training sessions at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco. Kept small to ensure maximum interaction, these training sessions will be led by Anaplan experts who have mastered model building, data integration, and working with the Anaplan platform.

Whether you’re interested in receiving a beginner’s overview of the platform, taking a deep dive into specific capabilities, or learning skills to enable your organization to become self-sufficient with Anaplan, this year’s training day caters to all levels of expertise. Below, you’ll find an overview of the training sessions offered at CPX and who should attend.

Training sessions for beginner, intermediate, and advanced Anaplanners
