The Titanic Challenges of the Internet - 34 Really useful Selling and training websites

RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of 1,514 people in one of the most tragic peacetime maritime disasters in history
One of their most important legacies was the establishment in 1914 of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea  (SOLAS), which still governs maritime safety today.

Commemorations are taking place this week and in my birth town of Southampton. Double Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell is to officially launch Southampton’s SeaCity Museum on 10 April

(Southampton lost 549 of the city's residents in the disaster.)

The web is like a vast ocean and navigating around it could be a Titanic challenge.

So I asked my colleagues at the Tack International Spring Conference 2012 just before EASTER 2012 to share with me some of the ' navigation aids'  - business sites -they find most useful to avoid the web's 'icebergs'.
