Join Facebook Director of Design Maria Giudice and Startup mentor Christopher Ireland for a fascinating Twitterview about their new book, Rise of the DEO: Leadership by Design. A “DEO,” short for Design Executive Officer and a play on “CEO,” is a hybrid of strategic business executive and creative problem-solver. DEOs are able to lead with a mix of imagination and metrics.


On Tuesday, October 1, at 11 am PDT, authors Maria and Christopher will answer your most pressing questions in easy-to-manage 140-character bites via Twitter. They will explain why this form of leadership is essential to the success of modern organizations and what characteristics are best suited to this role.

To tune in, just follow @Peachpit and @RiseoftheDEO. You can even set up a Tweetdeck group with just those 2 tweeps and follow along or search for this hashtag on Twitter.com: #riseoftheDEO.

Send your questions for Maria and Christopher to @Peachpit or post them as comments to this blog with your Twitter name. We'll pick a few random questions to ask, and if yours is chosen, you win a free copy of Rise of the DEO: Leadership by Design! You can also save 35% on the book or eBook with coupon code TWITTER.
