Join Mark Fernandes
on the #LeadWithGiants Tweet Chat
Monday, July 13
Though our lives we have unique opportunities to be touched by individuals who inspire, ignite, teach, and challenge us. We look up to these people… these giants (metaphorically, of course) for their expanded wisdom, experience, and presence. Their influences in our lives are sometimes fleeting, sometimes enduring and their purpose remains to help us expand our thinking and ignite our potential so we can continue to positively impact our world.
We often see them as larger than life and occasionally beyond our reach. Rarely do we have the opportunity to engage with these leaders authentically and in real-time. However, Dan Forbes has discovered a way to create space for us to connect with different leaders on a weekly basis. He hosts a #LeadWithGiants TweetChat every Monday night from 7:00-8:00 pm. During this hour, we have the opportunity to hear from those inspirational leaders – our giants – ask them questions, engage with them in a meaningful way, and contribute to the conversation focused leadership today.
Our very own Mark Fernandes will be Dan’s guest Leadership Giant on Monday, July 13 and we would love you to join the conversation! Mark will be speaking on Values Based Leadership and sharing action steps on how to bring VBL to life in your organizations and in yourself.
Below you will find some how-tos and helpful hints (just in case this is your first time joining a Tweet Chat!). Let us know if you have any questions and we hope to tweet with you out there on Monday, July 13, 2015 at 7:00pm ET!

WHAT IS A TWEET CHAT?
A Tweet Chat is a conversation that happens on twitter through the use of a hashtag (#). There is a set time, a topic, and a moderator who prompts the conversation and answers questions.
WHAT IS A HASHTAG (#)?
A hashtag, which is symbolically represented by # (the pound sign), is a word or a phrase (with no spaces) which allows a conversation to be tracked. If you put a # in front of a word or phrase and then click on that it, you will be able to see what else people are saying about that hashtag. A hashtag is NOT case sensitive.
