Founders Meeting

October 16, 2018 • Chicago

Private, Confidential, and Invite-Only

Deep conversations on issues that matter with people who can actually help.

Welcome to the first meeting for your new community.

The Founders Meeting is unlike the typical Member Meetings you’ll experience in the future. You’ll help set the stage for this fantastic new community.

As one of the founders, this is your chance to frame the issues, focus the purpose, and build deeper relationships with your fellow founders.

We’ll focus on:

  • What are the critical issues for X members to discuss?
  • What are the unique challenges for running social media at a major brand?
  • What are the right types of organizations for membership in the community?
  • Which individuals on your teams will be the best contributors to the conversation?
  • What are the ground rules and format of X activities?

What’s Special About Our Meetings

1. Better information: A private meeting for people like you.

There are certain things you can only talk about face-to-face, with people like you, in total confidentiality. You get better answers when experienced practitioners can share openly and honestly — with no vendors in the room. You can’t get this anywhere else.

2. Better use of your time: Great conversations. Nothing else.

You pick the topics, so every conversation is useful and relevant. All the content is from fellow members who know what they’re talking about — no bad speeches, panels, or pitches. And, it’s a well-run meeting, on time, with amazing customer service.

3. It feels like a family reunion.

It’s a fun, uplifting experience to spend time with your tribe. There’s a level of comfort and support you get when you know that everyone in the room understands you.

We’ll Have Three Kinds of Incredible Conversations
