TOP 10
The ‘Top Ten’ most influential people in the corporate e-learning sector World (2014) was according to Bob Little's annual list (Click their name to visit their SlideShare homepage. Not all could be found!): 
  1. Craig Weiss

  2. Elliott Masie
    Head of The MASIE Center, a New York think-tank focused on how organisations can support learning and knowledge within the workforce.

  10. Sunder Ramachandran

With the exception of Christopher Pappas (as of today), the Top 10 e-Learning Movers & Shakers (2014) of the World have a surprisingly LOW NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS on SlideShare. Why? Not getting into that!

So, the WINNER of this category has to go instead to Jane Hart (No. 2 on the UK List), who outshines the top 10 big time (refer to the picture above)! Their total number of followers combined is not even close to her total. The same applies to Zaid Ali Alsagoff, which happens to be me! 

So, let's enjoy Jane Hart and Zaid Ali Alsagoff's awesome collections of presentations on SlideShare. We might not be the best overall, but when it comes to SlideShare...WE ROCK! Al-Hamdulilla!

Also, let's not forget that Tom Kuhlmann is the IRON MAN for swooshing awesome PowerPoint related juice (with Articulate), but sadly I couldn't locate his SlideShare account.

Finally, it is important here to highlight that the Top 10 e-Learning professionals (Corporate Sector) on the list above, have contributed to the e-learning world in so many other ways beyond SlideShare, and that is something we must keep in mind. SlideShare is just one of many tools, we can use to share our ideas, experiences, learning content, etc.

In part 2, we will explore the Top 10's presence in ______....to be revealed :)
