    Community Managers from Other Companies as a "Guest" in Your Advocate or Community Manager Webinars


      I'm working on an ongoing training program from Community Managers beyond our two standard lessons. It's more of a forum, a monthly sharing of best practices and discussion.

      I'd like to feature examples of community managers who've done something well (ie engagement, space design, content creation etc.) on every call according to a pre-defined schedule of topics.


      I think it'd be really neat to feature community managers from other companies who can give insight on what's worked in their Jive instance! Even for 15 minutes on one best practice that has been successful.


      Is anyone game for this? I am willing to share my calendar and work with any of you - in exchange for success stories that have worked for us at First American.



      • build credibility for us who promote Jive; 3rd party endorsement
      • contributes to a variety of success stories, more dynamic collection of use cases
      • can spark many other ideas amongst all of us internal community managers


      These are the topics I have so far, will feature once a month:
