Ecademy Experts in their field - writing great blogs that enable us to follow them

The Blog page of ecademy is my favorite place to spend time online, I love the diverse conversations, the openness and the learning

Not all Blogs are business related, which is great, this is a social network for business people, and if I was having a glass of wine with you in a wine bar I would be pretty board if all we talked about was work.

There are some people here who I really admire as experts who write about their subject, help me see their value, provide me with enough insight to advocate them and help me learn a great deal beyond my core skill and knowledge.

I have highlighted just a few of the experts that I follow, I read their Blogs, I learn from them and I like them because I can feel their personality.

I am not highlighting those who also add so much to my life through their humour and their compassion, on this Blog I would purely like to discover who are the people you admire for their Knowledge and their expertise in their market, please do link to a Blog they have written that has helped you if you have time also.


To start off here are some I admire

Alan Stevens - teaches us about the media and achieving publicity

James McBrearty - writes about Tax and the small business

Nick Tadd - helps us to learn the latest thoughts and tools in social media

while I was looking through the Blogs today, I came across so many people that write regularly who do not make it clear what their business is, but they are Known and Liked, I guess the people above help me know why I should Follow them in business.

Being Known and Liked is the best way to start in any community, being followed takes time, as there is a fine line between 'broadcasting' and sharing knowledge. The people I have highlighted here, do also get involved in the community and I like the fact that we see them cropping up in many Blogs, commenting on a broad range of topics.

who do you Know, Like and Follow and why?

When I was growing up( about 10) a popular topic of conversation was, " My Dad has a Ford and its the best!,My Dad has a Chevy and its better than a Ford. My Dad can beat your Dad!" Looks like this blog is moving along those lines! What qualifies a person as an expert? It is a person that is currently doing it,has a successful track record and knows the principles,fundamentals and concepts involved. One of the great benefits of being an Ecademy member is the having the opportunity to meet people who have invested their time,energy,ambition and courage to develop expertise in specific areas. There is an abundance of valuable information here. Some we will agree with and not with others. It is however, in my opinion, vitally important that we all respect each others human dignity and avoid personal attacks.

Hi Penny Boy what a post and what a great response for a Friday 13th post and have just read all the comments, apart from the hidden ones, for the first time this evening as I have been trying to catch up all day on having missed 3 days out of things. My mentor was an Expert in Living and Giving and he always said "If You Are Not Having Fun You Are Not Doing It Right" Life should be to Emulate and Eddify, give knowledge to others, accept knowledge from others and if you have nothing positive to say about another keep it to yourself and I am 100% with Ces on her comments and wish everyone a great day on Tuesday no matter where you are or who you are. Expert or not, Enthusiast or not, Pedant or not. :-)) Alan

Ecademy Enthusiasts in their field - writing great blogs

Now that list would be MUCH longer Penny. In my view there are plenty of enthusiasts here - some already have real expertise, some claim expertise and some aspire to expertise. And of course some enthusiasts will never achieve any real expertise beyond displays of their enthusiasm.

Dear all, I am absolutely blown away wiht the debate that has been created here and I am very happy to see the learning that I have had from it. I feel that the saying 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' is true of the title of expert.... that is good to learn I am very interested in the fact that there are some tremendous minds here, that are clearly selling their service and their 'expertise' to people and making money from it. What I would like is to find more people to learn from and my intention for this Blog was to unearth these people. I need to digest all the comments above over the next couple of days, but thank you for the way you have given this discussion oxygen and I hope that all those that took part feel they have learned something from the experience, I have. I also hope that when you do come across people you admire and learn from, you could perhaps encourage them to share their knowledge with others here. Finally, (for now) thank you to Nick Tadd who refined my request for 'experts' to 'enthusiast', I think that is brilliant, subtle and surely cannot upset anyone. So correcting above.... if you come across people who are enthusiasts in a particular field of business and we could learn from their thought, please do point them to the Blogs and encourage them to share their enthusiasm here. (I feel a great deal more comfortable with this, thank you Nick) From one social media enthusiast to another.

Hi Everyone You know an interesting thing about discussions on blogs is in one way or another they can often help you get to know other people more, or be the starting point of getting to know new people. It is all too easy to formulate and decide upon an opinion of someone based on what they comment or blog and not bother to get to know them at all - which can be a shame. Sometimes I think it is easy to take something out of context or write some comment which is emotion based rather than relative to the bigger picture. Twitter is probably the worst for that as it is so fast paced to just tweet something without careful thought and you can't really get your point across in 140 characters which leaves it open to be taken in a context it was not meant. Makes me think of Nicks blog about the tone of an email! I digress from the point anyway. . . Just to clear a few things up, I think that when a tired Jay read Rob's comment about so called branding experts it was taken a little too personally. As I blog about twitter graphics and profile graphics. In hindsight Rob I shouldn't think you could have been referring to me anyway as I do have abundant qualification, experience and creative passion for the field in which I work (the branded visual image for small businesses) and I have never claimed I know everything about 'branding' which I can't imagine any one person would seeing as so many different things come under the tab 'branding' and contribute to a brand, as I have blogged before and recently mentioned in my interview with Nick. Then a later comment by Mehmet refers to 'charlatans' which I think again has been taken as a personal dig when perhaps it is not at all. In a sense it is the same as how people define 'spam' online in different terms. Whether out of context and taken too personally or not, the negative essence of some comments got to us a little initially which is why emotion took over and a word which is another interpreted differently by different people 'bullying' was thrown into the mix. Bless my hubby Jay for going into protecting his wife mode when he felt that I was being personally attacked. Knowing my hubby feels passionately about wanting to protect me is nice however it came about. You can't fault the principle behind that even if rotten fruit comparisment seems as bad as being down on other peoples knowledge sharing/blogs. What I have learnt from telling my story and being 100% open about my challenges and vulnerabilities since the death of my son and in putting the Learner Entrepreneur hat on in starting up the business following my career in brand image development, blogging, interaction and friendships here is that being open and supportive of others stands you in good stead. This does not of course mean we all have to agree on everything. It would just be nice if more people could be constructive and positive :) - surely there is some logic in that. I believe that everything in business and life is a learning curve and that good and positiveness can be found to be brought forth from most situations, this blog included. That is why (and don't get me wrong - I freely admit to not always doing or saying the right thing and I very much doubt anyone 'never' says the wrong thing) I typically encourage saying something supportive or voicing an alternative opinion in a constructive way with regard for the other persons feelings. Typically. As I said before, I have learnt a lot from people I would class as an expert here and I say "long may the VALUE in Ecademy grow and people should be encouraged to share stories and ideas in blogs" All have a great weekend.

Hi Simon, I see a bullying mentality as negativity directed at someone when it is unfounded and being repeatedly critical instead of constructive. Wikipedia: Bullying can be verbal harassment, physical assault, or other more subtle methods of coercion such as manipulation. . . .perceived imbalance of power. . . .The harassment can be verbal, physical and/or emotional. . . .Bullies hurt people. . . .Bullying can be defined in many different ways.

Hi Penny Very good post just a shame that there are still people here on Ecademy who live and want to be in a controlling corporate environment, picking holes in blogs making negative comments when it is unlikely they have bothered getting to know the people they criticise or discovering where their experience and credibility comes from or what they actually claim to be an expert in and that their level of knowledge may well extend far beyond that which it is viable to contain in a simple and generalised blog. In my own opinion they are just school yard bullies that can't stand the way Ecademy is going. OPEN RANDOM SUPPORTIVE is what I learned from you and for me you are an expert in your field or maybe people will have less problem with it if I say YOU are world class, as you are known world wide and your book has a world wide audience. I don't comment on blogs a lot as that is not what I usually do but I'm making a change in things today. Ecademy has taken me to a whole new level in business where I'm making friends and doing work for them and I didn't even need to use the closed corporate pushy sales technique which is so yester year like some people here in Ecademy. I don't make personal attacks but I do say my mind and some of you on here are just bullies that can't stand the fact that when the rest of your precious controlling corporate world collapses that the genuine people who believe in OPEN RANDOM SUPPORTIVENESS will thrive and have fun with friends and do business together. I now have many friends whom I have met through the Social Web as that is what it is isn't it? I spend a lot of time here on Ecademy and other places online to meet people talk to old and new friends learn something new every day from the blogs here and elsewhere. BUT it is nearly only here where you get the web bullies that have to be negative rip apart a well meant blog. After gaining Higher National Diplomas in 'small business brand image creation' from the age of 16 to BA(hons) with distinction, during her 12years professional career my wife Ces has worked in the corporate world in design agencies in London, the South Coast, working with global and high street brands alike. She left partly because the closed controlling environment and the fact things are often more about ego stroking the right people than helping people with the creative gift she has is just not in her nature. Nor is it in mine. There are plenty of experts on here in all areas of industries and why are they experts because ( thank you Mehmet for pointing me there): An expert, more generally, is a person with extensive knowledge or ability based on research, experience, or occupation and in a particular area of study. Experts are called in for advice on their respective subject, but they do not always agree on the particulars of a field of study. An expert can be, by virtue of credential, training, education, profession, publication or experience, believed to have special knowledge of a subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others may officially (and legally) rely upon the individual's opinion. It just remains for me to say to all that are open, supportive and random to keep doing what you are doing and don't listen to these bullies who in fear of our new world retaliate like little kids. Let us show them by putting an arm around thier shoulder and giving back there corporate dummy, that the new world is a friendly place where we support each other and do not tear each other down. To all of you coming here being negative saying there are no experts in here. Why do you keep coming back? Why comment on blogs like this? Why look at blogs by people you don't like? Why not block automated messages sent out by some BlackStars once a month to notify people of a blog post if they annoy you? Just because you are hurt doesn't mean you can come online prove that your corporate D**k is bigger then anybody elses. We don't care so why don't you just shuffle along and find a closed corporate place to rant in - a community that love to hack each down and prove they are more knowledgeble and that someone else in your opinion is less knowledgable. That sort of behaviour is not very encouraging to others new to blogging or anyone for that matter. To you I say farewell and I hope for your sake that when the new world arrives you are able to adapt and see the value in being open and supportive. We have spoken to a great many people who are unsure of interacting Ecademy as they are aware of certain people being negative and it puts them off. This is a great shame and it will not last as Penny and Thomas's vision of a community of people opening their arms to each other in friendship carries a power from above which cannot be beaten down. To Penny, I am sorry that I have expressed my views strongly here but you know who I am and what I am about. I could not just sit back and have a handful of rotten apples sour this place as when you treat this place in an Open Supportive way, you leave here with a smile, having shared, having learnt, having developed friendships and with great satisfaction. Looking forward to many more years here and keep your blogs coming. You inspire many and are the reason many are here on Ecademy striving to bring out the supportiveness.

Unfinished Rothko No 1 (Tintagel Sunset) In history, all the greatest minds have been people who knew that they did not know. The questions they raised were subtle, existing only on the knife edge between perception and imagination. What these brilliant people have all illuminated is that which we can barely know yet which is far more important than all the things we can claim to know. But you would need a love of literature to access any of these realms. None of the expertise invoked so far in this thread is of the slightest importance compared with "Waiting for Godot". The claim to know is itself a grandiose and infantile delusion. Even great scientists are thrilled by the limits of their knowledge. Knowing is the booby prize in life. The internet has destroyed my career as a sage. Everyone's a guru today. I wrote this website by the way. Does yours read anywhere near so well?

Penny, We think along the same lines. When I visit Ecademy, I go to the blogs section, and sort by the most recent (by date posted). I read many of them, comment on a few and like on a few more. I like the ones that are clearly thoughtful, and don't sound like I am being sold to. If I establish a rapport with the author, that is the best way to learn what it is they provide - without them telling me from the rooftops. You and Thomas have a solid following here, of course. I find William Buist goes into great detail in his posts, which have taken a lot of thought. Nick does a great job, as does Vanessa. There are many more, of course, but that's who comes to mind - in addition to the daily PPE photo study. -- Find more about me at www.louisgray.com

This has proved an interesting thread, for different reasons than I suspect Penny Power had originally intended. My absolutely non expert opinion, which I foist on you as I somewhat boredly watch Jonothan Ross, although it has got more interesting with our new World Heavyweight Champion coming in for interview, but I digress. I thought Penny Power's blog was a good one with the potential outcome of discovering new and interesting people with something to say that I may not have read. Mehmet's response taking the word expert in it's most literal sense was probably correct but, I feel, did not take into account the context in which Penny meant it. I, as a non intellectual, would take issue with his assertion that no expert opinion is displayed on Ecademy whilst agreeing with him that it is extremely limited. There are no doubts experts in their fields on Ecademy, but blog content tends to be more general as of course it is free, so it is placed to get people to visit their website, buy their product and expertise. So maybe the expertise that comes to the fore, on the blogs, comes out more in the "Social" blogs rather than the business ones where there can be excellent discussion and exchange of idea's. Equally I guess a lot more "in depth stuff" goes on in the groups. Nick Tadds response made me smile as he complains about other people's certainty of their views as being right whilst displaying exactly the same charictoristics in his views. His second post had much more merit for me. Ces Loftus makes some good points, and this from someone whom she refers too after writing a critical comment on her blog albeit one not solely aimed at her or her content, but then likes Nick Tadds comment which was critical, sarcastic and hardly positive albeit not of the blogger but the subsequent posts. I liked the post by the way although not agreeing with it's premise. Anyway, back to the original purpose of the blog. People who have caught my attention are: Jeff Mowatt Alan Stevens Fraser Hay Bernadette Doyle Andy Preston I am not going to get in to the expert debate about the above people but I do believe that all of the above can and do speak with an authority which is backed up by knowledge, experience and results.

Hi Penny I liked your original purpose and I'm in the camp of Anthony, David, Nick and Ces. I also remember a single definition of "expert"- an old drip under pressure but I'm sure it doesn't apply to any of the respondents on your blog today! Finally, and its probably the right week to be saying this given we have just been marking Rememberance Day- I may disagree entirely with what was said but defend their right to say it!

Ecademy Experts in thier field - writing great blogs that enable

Hi Penny On many blogs I see people making negative remarks. I think it is really sad to see some people being so negative and critical towards others who are trying to be open and supportive of others and I have had many conversations with fellow networkers of late who are of the same opinion. I think it is good to : Freely share the knowledge and experience learned through education and industry experience. To share information discovered and stories of experiences that may be of interest or of value to others. To engage with others by commenting positively and with encouraging content on their blogs. I have learnt a lot and gained many genuine supportive friendships. Expertise is on different levels, a level for beginners in a topic is different than what is of value to someone with some greater knowledge of the topic. Encouraging people to blog and share what they know is good. Encouraging those who do this is worthwhile and enriches networking. There is nothing wrong with diversity and people having different opinions on subject matter, however you can voice an opposing opinion in a positive way or a negative way and which you choose to use will effect how others may perceive you. Discussions and conversations from the right perspective can bring forward positive things. There is a community of genuine people on Ecademy who strive to encourage others and help each other grow. Penny you are a beacon of light in open and supportive networking. I was asked in my interview on #theNTshow to name 'worst brands' which I declined to do based on, although I have my opinions on the lacking value of some brands I think it is far better for me to big up and encourage those I can see are forward driven and have #likeminds for a future of business people collaborating and actively seeking to support one another (as opposed to pulling each other apart and whining about what each other said) than it is to slate those I think have a bad brand. The response to this was that I made a very good point and that in being critical and negative instead of finding ways to voice your opinion in an encouraging way (and if you can't do that then keeping it to yourself) then ultimately it is your own reputation that will be damaged as you will be seen as 'negative and un-supportive'. Multiple comments of negativity on other peoples well intentioned blogs is like playground tactics and a arguably a little pathetic. Even when someone writes a negative comment on my blogs I will respond openly to them and try not to hold it against them as we are all humans and no one is perfect, it is easy to comment something in haste or without much thought. I make the point 'he who is perfect and never makes a mistake raise his hand' - those who want to be forgiven mistakes should be ready to forgive others. Those who want to receive true 'expert' value from a networking community should be an 'expert' in supporting that community and helping it grow. I have always been 100% open in social networking and don't claim to know everything. I am a learner entrepreneur as I have said many times before. From what I have learnt through years of education, years of my career and that which I have experienced in life (my journey) leads me to believe there is a future where those who support and openly share what they can from whatever level they are at will be of far greater value in a community than those who are sadly of a more controlling and critical mindset. ps - well put Nick and Anthony. Long may the VALUE in Ecademy grow. Ces xx please feel free to send me a message via ecademy or ces@creativelyminded.com If you would like to speak to me in person do phone me +44 151 652 9858

Writing blogs doesn't make you an expert though

I know, like and trust all 3 of the bloggers noted in your post Penny. And I would agree that Alan is an expert in his field. He's acknowledged as such by many, many people and for doing more to evidence his expertise than simply writing blogs on Ecademy. Nick may be being modest in his comment above but I suspect that both he and James are genuinely surprised to be described as experts in their respective fields. To answer your question about other (real?) experts on here with links to their blogs I'd suggest: Fraser Hay - small business marketing - here's a recent example - and here's an older one Andy Lopata - networking strategy - an example blog Stephen Harvard Davis - Job transition and Top Talent retention - example blog Mark Lee FCA CTA (Fellow) Chairman of The Tax Advice Network The UK's largest network of vetted independent specialist tax advisers - "Because even the best accountants sometimes need independent specialist tax help" Remember to contact us through our website please if you have a tax problem or worry.

Rob, isn't the term 'expert' relative to the audience? My daughter thinks I'm an expert bass guitar player but my teacher doesn't agree. I think he is the expert, hence the lessons, but he doesn't agree because he thinks his teacher is the expert.......and so on. In other words we are all experts about something to some people who know less than us, but not so to others who know more. I know nothing about branding so I'm pleased to get the advice from others who do. They are experts to me because it is what they do. If I don't like or agree with what they say, I just don't take the advice. In your example you'd call in the 'real' experts but who would they call in? The 'real' real experts? If we take this idea of 'expert' to the extreme surely there will only be one expert on each subject in the world, none of whom I suspect we will find on Ecademy. I'm happy to take what I can from some people and not from others, but I won't hold it against them if they know less than me or at least I think they know less than me. Having been in sales most of my career, I still remember the single most important bit of 'expert' advice I ever got: If by reading a sales book I get one single good idea that works, then it is worth investing the time and effort to read it. This applies to all books and I have been reading all kinds ever since. I think the same applies here on Ecademy.

Thank you Penny for your very kind words and I'm honoured for my name to be used in conjunction with the term "expert" ... but, alas, the accolade cannot be mine as I'm not an expert and have never, in five years of web contribution, called myself one. However, that term IS surely deserved of some other people in this thread that clearly understand more about life than I do. You can tell their expert nature by their "un-doubted" opinion and un-shakeable "dictatorial nature" for, make no mistake, they are always right. As I have said before many times - I'm no expert. I am an enthusiastic user of the web (social media being a small part of a bigger picture) that's for sure. And there is no doubt that I am very privileged to have built another business that allows me to devote my time to a greater cause other than whinging. But, as I said, there are other people on this thread that deserve the accolade "expert" far more than me. (You can identify the "experts" on this thread because they always get upset when other people get recognition of being experts!). Their dedication to argument, control, bitterness , misery and mis-understanding is surely deserved of the term "expert". The sheer amount of time they spend "stalking" is worthy of the name expert. The nature of the dedication they give to their bitterness and whining and the amount of time they give to the cause is astounding. Surely experts in the true sense of the term? I doff my cap to "the cult of whinge", the true experts on ecademy. Solidarity brothers, whingers unite. P.S I love your dedication and addiction to social media - albeit to whine , but your sense of irony is Python-esque. Regards N    socialmediagraffiti.com

The big problem with the web and any kind of business endeavour is IP being "borrowed". I've written today of one such experience where "experts" appeared to pass off ideas as their own. http://www.ecademy.com/node.php?id=138669 Not all are venture capitalist, even Oxford University has been used to regurgitate original ideas which have been published in the public domain for more than a decade. http://oxfordhub.org/oxsef Experts like these are to be challenged, they may be following but they don't want to know or like...

According to the simple definition given above, an expert can be, by virtue of credential, training, education, profession, publication or experience, believed to have special knowledge of a subject beyond that of the average person. As an average person in many things, that's good enough for me. I have found that there is a lot to learn from people on Ecademy with more expertise than I have in their chosen subject such as the three people mentioned above, and I know I have barely scratched the surface. It's the 'self-proclaimed' experts I tend to ignore personally. Pedantic might be a better word to discuss.

Yes Mehmet - I agree too.

Hi Penny, I agree that there are excellent, interactive, supportive, engaging, thought provoking and informative blogs on Ecademy therefore I enjoy participating as blogger and reader too. However, frankly, I am yet to see any expertise based blogs on the Ecademy page or any other social networking sites blog sections. Of course, unless expertise is defined differently in your vernacular i.e. educated thoughts, views, opinions, observations. Anything which has expertise label has either copyright tag with commercial IP or kept secretly behind the firewalls except for a few donations for public domain from large organisations for various purposes which I could elaborate when required.
