Blogs are all the rage (as my Mum would say), providing us all with information on anything and everything we fancy reading about. They are fantastic sources of the latest industry information and tips, however if you’re a little bit lazy or you prefer to watch and learn, information videos or vlogs are also fantastic ways to get business and project management news, tips and tricks.
Whatever your position in business, you should aspire to learn something new every day. You and the organisation you work for will benefit from you knowing all the latest news and trends from the industry you work in.
Videos are a great way to gain inspiration, information, skills, news and best practices and they enable us to hear the thoughts of industry leaders and people in the same position as we are.
