Event Details

Today, it’s clear that building and leveraging communities has become a cornerstone of successful tech marketing. These communities not only shape brand identity but also influence consumer behaviour, fostering innovation and driving progress toward a brighter future.

In our last TechTalk of 2023, we’re talking all things community building – and you can expect an engaging discussion that explores things like:

  • Finding Communities: Your brand’s communities might not be where you think. So how do you fish where the fishes are?
  • Community Building (and Leveraging) for Tech Brands: Delve into the behavioural science behind the power of community, and how tech companies can create and nurture them – and what to do then.
  • Effective Communication within Communities: Learn how to craft messages that resonate within these communities.
  • Integrating Community into Brand Operations: Discover actionable methods to weave community engagement into your brand’s daily activities.
  • Measuring and Reporting Community Impact: Understand the metrics and approaches to evaluate the influence of your community-building initiatives.
  • Fostering Internal Alignment for Community-Centric Strategies: Explore strategies for rallying your team around community-oriented endeavours.

One of the highlights of this event is the interactive Q&A session, where you’ll have the unique opportunity to engage directly with our panellists. Ask questions, gain practical insights, and deepen your understanding from those at the forefront of their industries.

Additionally, this TechTalk provides a unique networking opportunity, allowing you to connect with like-minded professionals who share your passions, all while enjoying a delicious breakfast.
