Bas de Baar is this week's guest on The Project Management Podcast ( We explore ways how project managers can use social media as a communication tool on their projects and we also discuss how helpful they can be to your personal career development and networking.

Hence my question to you:

Do you find that using the forums here on Manager Tools is helping you to network / manage your career?

Yes, I get a lot of great information from the forums. It is also helpful to know I'm not alone as I'm learning from the podcast since most of the people at my company don't practice the recommendations presented in Manager Tools and Career Tools.
