Welcome to Community Group Therapy!

Glad to have you join the conversation.  Now for a short introduction.  I’ve been working on community for approximately 4 years with a particular focus on engaging the active enthusiasts and leaders that fuel the value of communties. All of this effort has through my role at Microsoft, where I am the General Manager of Community Support and MVP. Check my links to learn more about the MVP award program if interested. I started this blog for two simple reasons:
1) I’ve learned more about communties by talking to others in the space than any other activity (big surprise)
2) Forcing yourself to write and discuss is the best way to learn new points of views and perspectives.

So, glad you are here and welcome.  If you’re a first time visitor, I encourage you to start with my very first post for some context setting.

    Thanks Patrick, you are certainly welcome here. When the time comes to talk about what you guys are doing, let me know and I’ll blog about it. I think others that might come here will be interested.

    Hi Sean

    Thanks for the invite!

    Communities added so much zest to my life, advanced my carreer and is just such a load of fun.

    Ruari and I have had several chats since the end of last year to start a community of communities – but where we want to go with that still needs some thinking time.

    I’ll watch this space avidly and throw in my 2c once in a while 🙂

    Hi Sean,

    Great blog. I worked on community/forum initiatives for a Fortune 200 and loved every second. Glad to find a place dedicated to it, I’ll be back often!
