[Presentation] Chris Snider shares 9 Things to Watch in 2014

Chris Snider, an instructor from Drake University, kicked things off at Media Now STL last week with this presentation he gave on 9 things to watch in 2014. You can see what his nine items are in the presentation above, but what I think is just as useful are the 4 takeaways he has at the end of the presentation. They are:

  1. Be an advocate for trying new things
  2. Become the resident expert on something
  3. Get your hands on stuff
  4. There is free training online

His presentation got the crowd thinking and stretching themselves a bit. Take a look through his slideshare. If you have any questions, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind if you shot him a question on Twitter. While you’re at it, he’s got a great newsletter he sends out weekly that you can sign up for here.

What do you think of his 9 things to watch? What would you have added to the list? Drop your additions in the comments below.
