About This Event

In an our increasingly individualistic society, the value that community brings is more important than ever. Communities give humans the ability to connect, support, and share ideas. They've also helped brands engage with their audiences more genuinely, which is why "Community Manager" has become such a popular job title.

How can you use community to better engage with your customers and reach them in impactful ways? Join us at the beautiful Interchange Camden with some of London's top community managers for a discussion on the ins and outs of community and the value it can bring to your organisation.

About the Panelists

Samantha Hepburn Photo

YunoJuno

Sam's mission is for less people to fall into the careers and rather actively choose what they want their future to look like based on sharing knowledge and understanding the different types of roles in the technical space. To try achieve this mission she works with a variety of communities within London, helping organise and host events and presentations with a focus on developing talent and mentoring for everyone from students to CTOs. When she's not doing that she is the Head of Community at YunoJuno making sure the freelancer voice is heard! She occasionally sleeps :)
