But in the cases where that's not going to work out, I would really like to help the person find a speaker who is local and who can speak to the issues around eLearning 2.0, Work Literacy, etc. This is similar to the issue being discussed as part of this month's Big Question - Network Feedback and in Getting Help.
So, I'm hoping that folks can recommend what I should do with a request such as a request I just received (and they've allowed me to post it publicly) for help:
I need a speaker in the Birmingham, Alabama area for a local ASTD on eLearning 2.0 or Work Literacy.What would you do if you were me? Where would it make sense to post? How would your answer change if you got one request like this per week vs. one per quarter?
Oh, and if you know someone who might be a good fit, please let me know.
