  • Michael Brenner, SAP  writes .. When I first graduated from college almost 20 years ago, I quickly learned that I was not prepared to have conversations with experienced business professionals on the reality of the business challenges they were confronting.
  • My approach was to subscribe to a couple of business magazines and I read the newspaper every single day. I have been a voracious consumer and content curator of business and marketing news ever since.
  • Today, there are so many options available and we each have to find a way to find, filter, consume and share the information that is relevant for us.

Michael Brenner has put together a useful list of the top 30 news sources you should be following if you are interested in online business and marketing news. Editor
