How Businesses Use Periscope

Episode Sponsor - SkillStore 

We are excited to have this episode sponsored bySkillStore. It’s a cool new social-learning app. The team behind it is on a mission to transform how we do soft skills training – you know, things like leadership development, communications and management training. Most organizations need a solution for developing talent.

Mainly because current approaches don’t work. Instructor-led workshops are expensive and time-consuming. And web-based training largely puts most people to sleep – and don’t help much with soft skills. Bill tried these guys out (he actually took one of the modules on change management). What’s cool is how SkillStore helps you learn by doing, using live video practice and feedback from your peers in your organization. We thought our audience would love to hear about this because they just recently launched publicly (after working with some leading companies like Western Union and SAP), and are offering popular modules from its app “free forever” to anyone who signs up by March 31.

So check them out at www.skillstore.com and go sign up before March 31.
