    • You aren't prepared to assist people in learning a new skill and the time to make it an organizational habit.
    • 1. Listen to podcasts, audio content, read blogs, watch vodcasts
    • 2. Involve your staff, service users, supporters, clients - get their opinions/ideas, find out what they’re listening to/downloading/buying.
    • 3. Be yourselves - you’re not the BBC so don’t try and copy what’s out there. Be innovative.
