sydney AU – online communities:making it happen

the folks at the NSW KM association are putting together an evening in Sydney entitled:

Online Communities – Making It Happen

Online Communities have significantly grown in profile during recent years – esp. with the popularity of sites such as Facebook. This session brings together people who have an interest in the many forms of online community – whether these communities consist of professionals, employees, consumers or just people that want to hang out together. The session will be highly interactive. 


Angela Beesley is the Vice-President of Community Relations for Wikia Inc. which she co-founded with Jimmy Wales in 2004 to support wiki communities. She is also the chair of the Advisory Board of the Wikimedia Foundation, which manages the free-content encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

Scott Drummond is the Community Manager for SportsHydrant, an online community for sports enthusiasts based in Sydney. Previously he was deputy editor of Marketing Magazine.

Christy McCarthy is the Community Relations Manager for WorldNomads, a global online travel company. She is also responsible for the not-for-profit online fundraising initiative – which helps people give back to the communities in which they travel.

Mark Pollard is Strategy Director, McCann Sydney where he is responsible for brand and digital strategies for the likes of Microsoft, Pfizer and more. He is also the CEO of Stealth Magazine, the first full-colour hip hop magazine in the Southern Hemisphere.
