We had another successful Online Community Roundtable event in Mountain View last night. George Jaquette from Intuit was good enough to host. Representatives from several Bay Area companies attended, including Autodesk, Apple, Salesforce.com, Symantec, SAP, Dwell Magazine and the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation.
The Online Community Roundtable is an opportunity for managers of the Online Community function at Bay Area companies to come together and informally share best practices, discuss relevant business issues and to network with peers. The format is an hour of socializing followed by 90 minutes of guided discussion around a short topic set. The price of admission is a willingness to participate in the discussion. We ask attendees to present a short case study, or lead a guided discussion around a relevant question or topic. We try to hold the Roundtable every 2 months, and we alternate locations between the South Bay and San Francisco.
The intention of this event is to bring local Community experts together to discuss their experiences, issues and best practices so that the participants as a whole come away with a greater understanding of how to engage, and create value with their respective communities.
If you are in the Bay Area, and interested in being invited to future Roundtables, please send me an email: email@example.com .
