In this talk, Kelly will explore the challenges associated with managing communities comprised of industry professionals, who are often peers, superiors and/or students with their own priorities and time constraints. She will discuss the importance of building a strong foundation and how a little bit of planning can go a long way towards creating and sustaining a positive community that will stay active and feel valued.

Kelly will share the experience and lessons learned from founding and cultivating a community and network of over 400 independently focused companies and dozens of large scale partnerships globally via the Indie MEGABOOTH, along with her work for the IGF and co-organization of the indie festival BitSummit in Kyoto, Japan.

Each topic will provide descriptions, anecdotes, identifiable problems and actionable steps to take towards creating solutions applicable to a broad range of situations.
