  • Dear Walter, Communities too are evolving and when we simply think of Slideshare as a place available to upload presentations.... I think it has a much deeper meaning to it. I would like to understand the NCP model in details if possible. Many thanks for sharing this amazing presentation.

  • Walter, This is a great step through presentation for a particular tool. I have, in the past, thought of as just a place to make my presentations available for my attendees and as an inexpensive way to provide the presentation. With so many tools to focus on you have provided more clarity on the much deeper and broader role slideshare can have in the B2B world. I have begun a networking process on slideshare following your example. Thanks for making this available and being a leader on topics like this. Wendy Soucie

  • Russell, for sure that’s a trend. There is a wealth of assets out there in people and goodwill which is untapped so far by ’expert’ communities. Re the NCP model this is basic to understanding how to start, grow and measure your social media activities and return. It’s one of the core 7 business processes of the Social Media Academy, of which I am an alumni. Walter @g2m

  • Timely presentation Walter. It seems that expert communities are emerging where coaching and mentoring are key applications of social media to learning challenges. Your NCP model seem most apt for this task.
