7 SxSW Community Panels to Check Out

Editor’s Note:  This post was written by Harrison Kratz, Community Manager for the online MBA program, MBA@UNC. Aside from the great list he has put together below, he also has a social good panel submitted for SxSW called, “Keys, Boxes, Toys; Build a Cause-Passionate Army.”  

*****

The SxSW Panel voting period is rolling right along and our annual shameless plug bonanza is in full force. I figured that since this is a community for; well, community managers, that I should shed some light on our favorite community based panels that are vying to be selected.

This list is in no particular order:

Community and Influence: How to not piss people off

Panel: Frank Eliason, Maria Ogneva, Megan Berry, & Evan Hamilton

*****

Humans + Robots: Creating Search and Social Friendly Content

Panel: Jenn Pedde, Tiffany Monhollon, Holly Hoffman, Matt Egan, Mike King

 *****

  *****

 *****

10 Ways You’re Killing Your Online Community

 *****

Hope you like these panels as much as I do. Go vote, comment and support our fellow Community Managers! Plus, it’d be a great way to get a free drink down at SxSW. You can also check out the other community panels here to see what else catches your eye.

Are there any others that you would add to the list?

Throwing a vote for this panel presented by two of my co-workers, and the VP of Digital at Edelman in Toronto.

"How To Get a Job As a Community Manager"

Presented by Jon Crowley @joncrowley), Jeremy Wright (@jeremywright), and Dave Fleet (@davefleet)

Combining content creation, engagement and humanizing corporate entities, ‘Community Manager’ has become one of the hottest job titles in media. This panel will explore the key qualifications, important skills, and tactics that make great community managers for anyone who is looking to enter this field.

Reading this list makes me excited about getting to Austin. Would love to throw in our panel, What Your CMO Really Thinks about Social Media. Community and social media managers will get an inside look at what C-Suite marketers think about where social is headed and how social programs can have more influence within an organization. http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/12196 Thanks!

Phenomenal list. Harrison. I just linked a few panels in the Community Builders group on Facebook and this is a great expansion of that. I'd love to see community take a prominent place in the SxSW ecosystem.

This is a great list! Thanks for providing it! I'm going to (shamelessly) add one more: Geoff Livingston's "Turning Online Donors into Change Investors" (http://ow.ly/6atD7). They're going to talk about how nonprofits can create a community of giving with their donors.
