Washington, DC (USA), July 2019 - Speexx, one of the first intelligent language learning platforms for the digital workplace, was the recipient of Humentum’s Partner of the Year Award announced at Humentum’s annual conference, OpEx DC 2019, in Washington, DC, on 10 July.
The Humentum Operational Excellence Awards were established in 2010 (originally the InsideNGO Operational Excellence Awards) to recognize professionals within the development sector who are innovating, collaborating, and ensuring operational excellence within their organizations. As part of the OpEx DC 2019, Humentum announced that Speexx, a Humentum Learning Services Partner and a global provider of world class online language learning courses, was the recipient of the new OpEx Partner of the Year Award. The award honors an organization that has shown an incredible level of commitment to helping Humentum deliver affordable, high-quality learning solutions to people and organizations working to improve lives in developing and vulnerable communities.
Speexx’s ability to provide world class online language learning courses to the sector is essential to Humentum if it is to communicate successfully across Humentum organizations, communities, and in the field. As of June 2019, Humentum members have taken more than 11,500 courses to learn English, Spanish, and French at a discounted rate. Speexx and Humentum are proud to be supportive partners, allowing Humentum to improve communications across global organizations, doing the most important work in the world.
"We are pleased to recognize Speexx with the Partner of the Year Award," said Humentum CEO Tom Dente. "We couldn’t do the work we do without our industry partners. Speexx exemplifies the importance of operational excellence to better deliver and sustain results."
In addition to Speexx, Humentum recognized four other awardees for operational excellence, and recognized two other industry partners with the Industry Award and an Honorable Mention Industry Award.
More than 1,100 development practitioners from nearly 200 member organizations attended Humentum’s annual conference at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center this year, making it one of the largest gatherings of professionals in the international development and humanitarian community in the U.S.
