Learn Camp 2014

Hello again! Summer is here and that means another edition of the Learn Camp program is just around the corner. Thank you to everyone who participated last year! We hope you’ll stick with us and play along with us again.

If you were plugged in to last years program you are all set – no need to do anything at all. (It doesn’t get any easier than that!)  If you know anyone else who might like to participate just send them over here so they can register for the Learn Camp program.

We’ve shuffled things around a bit, adding some new topics and updating most of the others. Plus, we’ve recruited three fantastic webinar speakers who are true leaders when it comes to implementing social approaches within their organizations and helping others along that same path.

We will feature one webinar each month. Check out this amazing line up!
