Below are this week's public, free, and interactive Webinars through LearnCentral.org, the social learning network for education that I work on for Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate).
The time of the events below will show up automatically in your own time zone when you are registered in LearnCentral and when you have chosen your time zone in your profile, or you can check the new event time converter on the event page. Event recordings are posted and available after the events if you aren't able to attend them live. If you are looking for an easy calendar import / RSS feed for these events, you'll now find a link on your calendar page or the calendar page of specific groups!
We hope you will consider hosting your own public webinars using the free LearnCentral public room--instructions are available by joining the "Host Your Own Webinar" group on the main announcement tab (http://www.learncentral.org/group/3432/host-your-own-webinars).
Thanks for your attention, and see you online!

Mon 27 Jun 01:30PM New York / Mon 27 Jun 05:30PM GMT / Tue 28 Jun 03:30AM Sydney
Lou Russell. It's been a crazy ride and not completely over. With more work and far less staff than ever before, your team has been just barely keeping their heads above water, just like you. There's no time to have meetings, or plan careers or think strategically about anything. That's okay for the short term, but it is not sustainable. As the job market rebounds, your talented staff will look for a better boss. As the organization rebounds, your talented staff may be working on the wrong things. Join Lou Russell to think about reconnecting your staff to your business, and reconnecting yourself as well.
