Celebrate International Facilitation Week by joining #FacWeekchat on twitter!

FacWeek twitter chats

International Facilitation Week 2013As part of International Facilitation Week 2013, Ben Ziegler @benziegler and I @martingilbraith will be hosting Twitter (aka Tweet) chats on October 22 and October 24. Join us!

Each chat will run from 12:00-1:00pm EST / 5:00-6:00pm UK time (GMT +1:00).   Each chat will include 6-8 questions, spaced out throughout the hour, for you to answer, comment on, comment on other people’s answers, ask questions, etc.

The chat is basically a dialogue, a conversation between fellow facilitation professionals, discussing the topic at hand. Twitter chats are a great way to connect, share, learn, and have fun, with a community of practice; ie: facilitators!
