CMX Summit, the largest global community-focused conference just happened, bringing thousands of community managers from all over the world together in a 2 day online summit full of content, networking and much more.
And this next CMX Connect Portugal will be all about it!!
First, we will bring Ann Marie Pawlicki Dinkel, Event Manager @ CMX, who spearheaded the team organizing the event to share with us all the secrets of how they pulled it off so successfully, how it was to have their own event tool to cater their needs, and some tips and trips on how to survive organize big online conferences.
Then, we will move to an open panel discussion with two amazing community managers who presented at CMX Summit 2020:
Shana Sumers, who presented on "How to Build Out Your First Moderator Team"
Vanessa Mason, who deep dived on "Leveraging Tech to Build the Future of Belonging"
Bring your questions as this will be an open conversation!
Finally we will have our traditional networking session, to have the opportunity to get to know new amazing community managers from all over the world (:
We hope you can join us for this special recap about CMX Summit 2020!
