I have been in Cleveland this week to meet with our partners for the Worldcom Public Relations Group Americas annual meeting. One of the announcements made during our meetings is the launch of its newly redesigned learning and education center, Worldcom University. David Grossman, founder and president of the Grossman Group, will be the University’s first president. The Grossman Group is also a Worldcom partner firm.
Worldcom University, which originally launched in the 1990s, has been completely retooled. It will now serve as the exclusive education and learning center for the 1,800 employees of the 107 Worldcom partner firms around the world. New offerings on the interactive site will include instructional videos, webinars, whitepapers and thought leadership conversations culled from blogs and social media sites. The online classrooms will provide Worldcom members the opportunity to stay current on innovative practices and rapidly evolving tools used in public relations, marketing and advertising.
