Community Management & KM with John Tropea

  • Sep 25, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

John's presentation covers three areas based on his experience running online communities of practice for a global engineering firm:
1. the dos and don’ts on the formation of online CoPs
2. what drives the individual
3. tips on facilitating
There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion after each of the three areas.

Participating in this event will enable you to understand how:
• CoPs are self-forming; members need to be part of the creation process
• CoPs can’t be managed as teams; they need to be facilitated

About John

Recently recognised by MindTouch as one of the world's top 25 KM influencers on Twitter, John Tropea started blogging about libraries and the new web 10 years ago. This path led him to KM, Social Business and to interesting topics about human behaviour. John moved from Melbourne to Perth 8 years ago and since that time has been working for Hatch Associates (10,000+ design, engineering, project management for mining, energy, and infrastructure.) In the last 4 years he has been in the community manager role for internal communities of practice.

We are privileged to have John visit us in Melbourne. I hope to see you all there for our usual networking as well as a chance to make a real connection with John who has been a virtual friend for many of us over the last decade.

    Sorry for the late notice folks; John's talk tonight was particularly appealing to me, but as the saying goes 'something's come up'.

    I am really sorry to miss this session which I was really looking forward to but a family situation has cropped up which has pulled me away.

    Sounds interesting. My own KM & community management work is with a not-for-profit, but I'm sure there'll be plenty that's relevant.

    Human behaviour is a key issue with facilitation as a major enabler for building communities that succeed.
