    I did have a good time. Met some great and inspiring people. Feedback:
    - Two talks is a bit too much and too long. Both very interesting but takes away from meeting people.
    - Next time have some people submit some challenge they have in their job and pick the most interesting one(s) Then have the whole group or smaller groups help them with suggestions/input. This way everybody benefits from each others experience. Thanks for organising!

    Really enjoyed last night's meet up! Got really inspired by the presentations and the talks I had with the other visitors. Even stayed until the end On top of all this I was instantly bombarded/promoted to community manager for the time I'm an intern at Eat to Meet:)

    After the meet up I decided to host my own Eat to Meetdinner to get together at a table with other community managers to learn some more about this specialism. Would really love it if you'd join me!

    Hi/Hoi, I enjoyed the meet up as well. Thanks for organising it. In addition to Bart's suggestion, here's an idea: do short interviews with professionals concerning specific cases.
    An example: is a racing website that I've seen develop over the past 11 or 12 years into a great source of racing news. Many people post comments beneath the articles, entire conversations information sharing, correcting behaviours etc occur: a community has emerged. An open one. I'm curious to know if and what gpupdate does to encourage this activity.
    You could do a short interviews live using Skype, or maybe record it. It would increase the reach of information sources.
