learningAs I begin my 19th year at Cinecraft, I’m taking time to reflect on our team’s accomplishments in 2017. We’ve collaborated with amazing new clients and added talented learning professionals to our team. We received a Best of Show at Learning Solutions alongside our customer Booz Allen Hamilton, and we made the Training Industry’s Top 20 Watch List.
