The rules of engagement for building and developing a successful community have not changed; deliver value, put your people first and build a foundation. However many companies start with the ROI and the results they expect. Often Alumni Programs become stagnant as they fail to recognize or tap into the incredible power in the communities they have built. This is the difference between a community of Alumni vs an Alumni Community.

2020 has reframed the conversation as companies are now replacing buzzword empathy with actual empathy, companies are openly talking about their responsibility to support their former employees, and recognize that their Alumni Strategy has to enable and empower their Alumni to help each other.

The greatest driver of community growth, is not inviting more people and hiding churn, or a marketing effort to drive one time engagement, it’s when the community self-assembles and starts to generate meaningful impact without you.

For many Corporate Alumni Programs with thousands to tens of thousands of members, understanding how to understand, and programmatically deliver value at scale is what differentiates good from great.

In this 1hr webinar we talk to Jono Bacon on what Community 2.0 means.
