Exciting Find #1: Wheeldo

This relates to Knowledge Sharing – see our post: 5 Keys to Strategy Execution: #5 Human Capital.

I was just reading a post from Liliana Panic on LinkedIn which provided a link to her website: http://www.nopanicmanagement.com/2013/08/create-training-your-employees-will-love.html The website invites us to sign up free and create our own training on their platform! It also explains the purpose of Wheeldo:

1. Train New Employees
2. Encourage Peer Learning
3. Close the knowledge gaps and stimulate new ideas or knowledge sharing. You can create your own games here and invite employees to play them in order to learn, compete and innovate.

The video below provides an introduction to Wheeldo. If you try this product, tell us about your experience and results, here.

Building Your Brand

We’ve all heard of HubSpot, a leader producing all-in-one marketing software helping 8,000 companies in 56 countries attract leads and convert them into customers. I received this e-book from them, which, while targeted to marketing agencies, appears to us to be an excellent guide to anyone developing and marketing a brand. Try it out! It will only take a few minutes. If you like it, visit www.hubspot.com.
