Community Manager Appreciation Day KIN events...
We had an excellent turn out for this event, both face to face and on-line (apart from the Google hangout at the end of the day, which did not work - so apologies to anyone who tried to connect to this!!) With over twenty people signing up to hear our excellent presenters share their tips and hints on running successful communities.
Special thanks to Lesley Parker from Severn Trent Water, Richard Millington from Feverbee and Melissa Whittle from Geo Place who presented in the room and to Jon Harman from Syngenta and Yvonne Myles from Phillips 66 in Houston, who ran successful on-line sessions on the day.
Participants (both in the room and on-line) shared their thoughts and ideas on Top tips and challenges for communities in the morning session and looked at 'How to turn lurkers into participants in the afternoon. All outputs from these sessions is currently being captured and will be shared on the event page, along with a few photographs from the activities, all speaker presentations plus video's of the face to face presenters.
The first 20 people to sign up and attend the event (face to face or virtually) all received copies of Richard Millington's 'Buzzing Communities' Book and those who were in the room also received copies of The Capacity grid Online Facilitator Playbook.
