#SocialPowWow: Share, NOT Save Knowledge

I have always believed in the power of community and over time have formed a community of like minded people who share similar interests.
“Power is gained by sharing knowledge, not hoarding it”
That said, I recently started a Twitter ch #SocialPowWow. The idea behind the chat was to build a community:
  • For Indian Entrepreneurs, Marketing, PR, Advertising and Digital professionals
  • To exchange ideas and start discussions around topics to explore endless possibilities that are transforming the world of business
Till now, five chats have been successfully hosted on Twitter and the response has been superb! Here’s a list of topics we have covered so far and in case you haven’t check out the chat as yet, please do give a read to the re-cap:
