2013-02-01-30In30HughEvans-01.jpgI watched over the past year as Hugh Evans, CEO of the Global Poverty Project, created a formidable social media presence as he built a network of believers who not only helped spread his message, but allowed him to generate pledges for $1.3 billion in ten (10) months. I spoke with his social media coordinator, Mitch Hansen, last week about how the campaign was created and executed (link below).

In this discussion, I talk with Hugh about how he intends to extend the engagement of his followers into his next project..
