It’s easy to talk about something you are passionate about, believe in and work so hard for. Couple it with an experience that is beyond what I could have imagined, I’m almost at a loss for words. But this isn’t about me. It’s about everyone who made the first ever Community Manager UNconference such a success!
There were over 70 people that attendee the Community Manager UNconference in Chicago on Friday, February 24. Overall, eight sessions took place with two going on simultaneously.
Sean McGinnis “Building Communities from the Ground Up”
Grant Crowell “Bringing Video into your Community”
Liz Strauss “Creating Loyal Communities. Be Irresistible”
A fun time was had with the Meet-Meme trading cards and we awarded several prizes for those that completed their game cards.
Jenny Weigle, CareerBuilder, won the grand prize from The Community Roundtable: TheCR Focus ($350 value)
Karen Johnson, Wilton Brands, and Nicole Fusz, element14, both won copies of Deb Ng’s “Online Community Management for Dummies” book. And Nick Tippmann, Indiana University, and Kelly Loubet, Spellbinders Paper Arts, both won copies of “ZMOT: Winning the Zero Moment Of Truth”
