The #FailBetter Twitter chat will define failure, but in a constructive way. It will explore the conditions, culture and habits of failure to determine what works and what doesn’t, and illustrate how to leverage mistakes and turn them into positives.

How do you get involved? It’s simple! If you have a question, advice or example to share, just include “#FailBetter” in your tweet. Four lucky participants will also receive a signed copy of the book!
