Title / Position
Community Strategist

Short description
I am passionate about Open Source and collaboration. I came up with the idea for the OS initiative CMS Garden, promoting Open Source and content management. I write about community management and relating matters on my blog, ageofpeers.com and opensource.com and give presentations on community management and personal innovation. I organised the European Community Leadership Summit, latest edition London 2016. I communicate a lot with other projects to share experience surrounding community management.
I am a connector with a lot of positive energy.

About the speech
Community takes over part of what has traditionally been the space of an all-powerful individual. A top down approach is not a leadership method that is valid anymore. Especially the way communication has evolved over the internet is a foundation for a collaborative community approach. This workshop shows you methods of how to lay the foundation for your community and how to maintain your community. We discuss newer forms of leadership and as a bonus how to avoid burn-out.
