Continuing Education


Living in today's world where the pace of change seems to be increasing every month there are times I feel behind the curve and unable to catch up. This is more true in the world of digital communication and education because I know there is so much to learn. Recently I came across a website that has lectures from Stanford. These lectures are in their business program and are given by many of the leading business people in the digital world.

There is a lecture by Larry Paige, one of the founders of Google, on Science as Inspiration. There is a lecture by Carly Fiorina on the Difference Between Management and Leadership. Carly was the former CEO of HP. Steve Ballmer from Microsoft has a lecture on the future of Microsoft and the future of technology. There are also speakers like Guy Kawasaki who has spoken on multiple topics.

The amazing thing is that all of these lectures are free. Stanford isn't the only major university doing this. There is the opportunity to learn from many of the leading business people, thinkers and educators from around the world - all for free and all online. What a great time to live in when we can learn for free, from our home at any time.
