“The Publisher 1-on-1 podcast series showcases some of the most influential publishers in the industry in an easily consumable audio format,” commented Kevin Young, managing director of SkillSoft, EMEA. “It follows the successful July launch of our first free podcast series, which featured excerpts from ExecBlueprints; our 450-strong library of strategic insights, trends and initiatives, authored by some of the world’s most prominent business leaders.
Both podcast series are available for free subscription via the Books24x7 website – http://www.books24x7.com – or through the Apple iTunes Music Store.
