BEN HENNESSY gets a place marker on Inside View because he took the shortest route from tasking to completion of an academic assessment. Asked to gather information relevant to building a personal profile, Ben went to the top of the PR mountain and asked Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson for their feedback on an FIR podcast. My first reaction was it was rather cheeky because FIR is one of the top-ranked business podcasts in the world and getting in the earbuds of nearly 2000 practitioners with an academic tasking seemed rather precocious. But Neville and Shel acknowledged the question and put it into the FIR Friendfeed room (a private room but open to most requests for entry) where it's getting traction. If you're interested in adding to the discussion, feel free to join the thread. I imagine some will want to know more about the source of the question. That's why I've bumped HennessyBen onto the front page of my blog for 15 minutes of fame. Expect to see more of Ben in the "project management" category as he embraces a very creative work placement programme during the summer months.
