Last year, after seeing a few email from this company, I checked out BrightTalk.com. BrightTalk is an online event service for professionals and their communities. They’re a way to listen and participate in seminars given for particular industries (I’ve listened to 2 live and 1 recorded for free) or offer your own if you’re so inclined.
All you need to do is create a login, and choose the communities you want to join. You’ll get an email when a community is offering an online event. There are different communities that present legal, marketing, HR and sales topics. This is very much a global service, so you might find a discussion of India’s 2010 budget, or a presentation of the legal issues of SME funding from UK banks. But there’s lot of great discussions like this one about Twitter and Employer Branding.
Check out the marketing channel for lots of email, online and social media topics. A cool resource and great learning from different professionals and industries.
