Over the past six months or so, I have performed a dozen SWOT visits to HTG member companies as part of our HLG consulting relationships.

Lots of partner interaction and literally dozens of hours sharing content and participating in discussions and learning. As is usually the case, I am confident I have learned more from my participation than those I was supposed to lead and train.

One more week to go, so I may well have another blog to follow this one, but here are my initial lessons from down under in Q3 2012. 1...
