Am Joining

Image representing Lucian Tarnowski as depicte...Image via CrunchBaseIt's an exciting time for me as I get ready to take on a new assignment, joining in India - focusing on marketing and user growth. is a startup focused on building Talent, Skill and Learning Communities for clients. Here's a video of Lucian Tarnowski, the visionary CEO of BraveNewTalent (pictured on the right) being interviewed by Robert Scoble. In India I would be working with Dheeraj Prasad, the India Managing Director (you can read his blog posts here and here)

Personally what excites me about is the overall mission of thinking beyond "social recruitment" and focusing on helping organizations create and nurture Talent Communities. (see my previous posts on Talent Communities here, here, here, here) We know the challenges that people face when they hire in India (abundance of people, but a shortage of skilled, trained people) and this is where I see having the maximum impact. On a personal level, the experience of starting up an organization in a country and grow it is what is most exciting! Do check out the BraveNewTalent blog

The other reason for me is that I would be a colleague with a blogging buddy, Maren Hogan (whom I had interviewed in Jan 2009 for my other blog!). Maren heads the Marketing for in the US and I look forward to collaborating with her and sharing our learning.
