Editor's note
TrainingZONE's new columnist starts this week. Godfrey
Parkin should be familiar not least from the regular advice
he offers in the Any Answers section of the site, he is also
a regular conference speaker in Europe, the USA and Canada
and moderates the American Society for Learning and
Development's e-learning forum. Godfrey's experience in the
training and development field spans 25 years and no less
than 35 countries.

Godfrey's ideas are often challenging and you may not agree
with all of his observations, but hopefully they will be
thought-provoking. And you have the right of the reply, by
simply clicking on "add my comments" at the end of the
column - or any article on TrainingZONE - you too can join
in the debate.

You'll find Godfrey's latest column every Friday here:
