Building grassroots connections to grow your community with Helen Oldfield, Affinity PR

Wed, Sep 30, 6:00 PM (BST)

About this event

Building connections is an essential part of creating and growing a community. In this meetup, Helen Oldfield from Affinity PR will explore the skills and techniques you need to succeed, how to grow your community by inclusion, and will share some top tips for securing some great PR.

Whether your community is online or in-person, this is a great opportunity to learn from an industry expert!

In this session we’ll cover:

• How “community connecting” skills and techniques differ from those traditionally used in B2B (business to business) networking.

• Community engagement – what it used to mean and what it means now.

• Growing your community by inclusion.

• Some indicators/measurements of a “healthy” community and how to assess if it’s “broken” or fixable.

• A few FAQs around PR, such as how to get a VIP or celebrity to endorse or support your community.
