We are very excited to be sponsoring Swarm Conference this year! For those who don’t know, Swarm Conference, held in Melbourne, Australia, September 13th and 14th, is all about connecting and educating community managers. The conference provides fantastic opportunities to exchange best practices, hear keynotes from internationally recognized community managers, and network for collaborative opportunities.
We’ve long understood the role that community management plays in the success of a Yammer network; whether it be an internal network for your organisation or an External Network, that you’re using to communicate with stakeholders, suppliers, customers or clients.
Last year’s Swarm Conference was an absolute blast, and included a whole day of incredible speakers and an audience featuring the who’s who of the Australaian community managers. Our own Bryony Cole gave the keynote last year and threw balls of wool around the audience to demonstrate the idea of a social graph – something we still chuckle at today.
This year, our own Maria Ogneva is going to be speaking at Swarm as well! If you are in the area, make sure to come check it out! To make this possible for a couple of lucky community managers, we are giving away a couple of tickets!
If you’d like to join us at Swarm and want a chance to win a ticket, here’s what you have to do:
- Tweet us @yammer and share your best tip(s) for managing an internal/private/organisational community
- Include the hashtag #yamcmgr to make sure we see your entry
- Yammer employees will then select the two most useful and relevant tips for internal/private community management and communicate the winners via our own twitter account, @yammer. Winner will be announced on September 3!
That’s it! Happy tweeting! We can’t wait to see some of your suggestions and best practices. Should you not manage to win, there are still limited tickets available for purchase on the Swarm Conference website.
