Riders on the Storm Summit MP3s and CD audios

You can get permanent access to all the 2011 Summit presentations on MP3 or CD audio. This includes the interviews published in the eBook and Christine Thornton’s interview on ‘The Secret Life of Groups’.

I purchased the sessions to support your work, but being able to listen to the sessions over again has been an unexpected bonus … each session was so information rich that I am hearing new things each time I listen and I’ve listened to several sessions 3 times!
