#CMGRHangout presents: Remote Working for Community Professionals (Preview)

March 20, 2017 — by Sherrie Rohde0

Join us for the next #CMGRHangout panel on Friday, April 7th at 2pm ET/11am PT to talk about remote working for community professionals!

Jonathan Brewer and Sherrie Rohde will be hosting the hangout with Jenn Chen and Patrick Hellen on panel. Carrie Keenan will be moderating the Twitter chat using #CMGRHangout.


Jenn ChenJenn Chen
Community Manager at Procore Technologies

Jenn loves food and caffeine, as established in past CMGRHangouts. In her spare time, she enjoys eating, baking, reading and cheering on the Golden State Warriors.

Connect with Jenn on Twitter at @jenntothechen.

Patrick HellenPatrick Hellen
Senior Community Solutions Engineer at 7Summits

Patrick Hellen is a large collection of adjectives, in the shape of a lanky, bearded, and bespectacled fellow. He’s been a lumberjack, a restaurant writer, a published author, a sales guy, a book seller, a church janitor, a tour guide, and most recently, a community manager and a Dad. He reads nearly constantly, tells loud boisterous stories for as many people as will listen, eats food like it’s his last day on earth, and still collects comic books and video games. Until he decides to sit down and write another book, you’ll have to find his inane ramblings on Twitter at @PatrickCH.
