Session overview: How to grow a virtual community through effective comms

There is an art to facilitating an engaging chat especially when it all takes place online. I will share my tips for growing a community, keeping them engaged and the importance of listening to them too. This is an opportunity to consider what success looks like and how you can learn from my mistakes over 9.5 years of hosting #CharityHour a weekly Twitter chat. You will learn how to create and grow a virtual community that offers something for everyone whether a safe space, fun/enjoyment or just a place to learn. Finally, how can the community evolve as the platform changes while retaining its identity?
