If it is true that storytelling is one of the most compelling ways for us to learn, then YouTube, web video, podcasts and so on will revolutionize not just our personal learning, but also the way that we do business. Never before has it been so easy to produce content – and share it.
But sometimes it takes a great storyteller to tell a great story. And often the most compelling storyteller is the person who speaks from experience, who is able to recount their successes and their failures with the authority that only comes from “being there”.
From today, Learning on Demand by SAP provides access to a premium collection of stories from some of the world’s most respected business leaders – including JW Marriott Jr (Marriott International), Dame Anita Roddick (The Body Shop), Peter Ellwood (ICI) and Dina Dublon (Microsoft). In fact, there are over 60 business focused videos contained in the 12 month subscription (with more to be added during the year).
