Of course we had expectations, but still had no idea. We rotate topics each week to encompass a wide range of topics that affect all of us globally in the World of Work.
There are hundreds of Twitter Chats out there today competing for every tweeter’s frenetically brief but unique attention span – the Twitter events where participants talk about various subjects across industries and use a hashtag (like #TChat) to manage the chat stream.
It’s been an amazing journey. We are inspired now more than ever to keep the conversation moving forward. We’ve done over 30 shows to date and have nurtured a fantastic online community of professionals and enthusiasts that we hope to continue to deliver value and grow relationships with our interesting audience. This eclectic group of talent is comprised of leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, HR, career pros, recruiters, business consultants, marketers, public relations and social media enthusiasts, bloggers, job seekers, and a variety of eclectic innovative passersby. Usually we have hundreds of participants per week using the #TChat hashtag, extending our broader “Tweet Reach” into the hundreds of thousands.
If you’re not familiar with our weekly Twitter #TChat (TalentCulture Chat), we discuss what affects us all. It’s all about the re-engineering of business today, of the way we work and the why of it all in the 21st century — The Business and Social World of Work. It’s about re-imagining how we lead, acquire, empower and retain our workforce today, with emotional connectivity and global cultural inclusivity. It’s about the intersection of Talent + Culture. We ask a series of questions and let all participants answer and share during the #TChat hour.
And now it’s time to hear us speak. Literally hear us speak.
#TChat Radio launches on Focus, the business expert network, on Tuesday, July 26, from 8-9 p.m. ET & 7-8 p.m. CT & 6-7 p.m MT & 5-6 p.m. PT (the same Tuesday time slot for all the #TChat’s). We are global so see here if you need a compass. For now it will be a monthly show, although we may move to bi-weekly sooner than later.
That all depends on you.
