We are Big on in-person meetups.

Share with us how do you want to ‘Community, beyond the regular Discussions and Product feature Ideas usage.

Drop a comment below, on this very post, and let’s think of cool Social ways to achieve things together.

You know I’m “in”, @anirbandutta .

I want to experiment, and even hear from some experts, on best practices to exchange information, host events and the like. For example, do we lean on LinkedIn, or email, or Slack, or carrier pigeon, or the Gainsight Community, or tie an invitation to a cute puppy’s collar, or all of the above?

I’d love to hear what’s working well for folks

I would respond to an invite via carrier dog, or some kind of awesome falcon style situation.

 

I’m down in Houston and the drive up to Austin is doable, but logistics are tricky during the workweek. For in-person events I’d be interested if anyone is in the greater Houston area - otherwise I’ll be 50/50 on making it to meetups. Alternatively, a weekend meetup might be a nice excuse to make my way up that direction.

 

We’ve been talking about new topics for virtual meetups as well, which is a great idea for more frequent and focused discussions. Two ideas on that front…

 

1.) We can arrange 5-6 person “virtual round table” breakout sessions with maybe some suggested topics to choose from. There are some bots available for Slack that would make random assignments easier, and I think we can get some of them for free-99 which is the best price.

 

2.) We can do something like the round tables above, but with absolute nonsense topics - more of a social networking thing than a work discussion on best practices etc. I don’t mean to presume too much of myself here, but I would be happy to volunteer as the SME on nonsense conversation if you need someone to kick that off.

With you clearly leading the way here, @TMaier, @matthew_lind would you think that this tribe can be defined for the perimeter of all Texas, where you get to alternate between Austin & Houston meetups within the group or would you think you have enough happening through the year to upkeep 2 city level groups?

I would enjoy participating with a group of other Community leaders and interested people to examine and share ways that Community supports the entire customer lifecycle. I’m especially interested to learn about and advocate how this can support Customer Success.

Awesome to have you here @DougCaviness 

Community for Community leaders would be inSided’s Inspired Community, where I derive great value myself learning from other Community pros. - You may want to join that, cc @Alistair FIeld 

Whilst this GameChanger community continually aspires to be a good example of the lessons learnt above as well as building out the CustomerSuccess conversation in the world. :)
