#CMGRHangout presents: What Community Managers Can Learn from Superheroes


Batman is a Community Manager. Agree or disagree? Here’s why Patrick Hellen, who suggested this week’s topic, says he is:

1. He has a Bat-Family that he relies on for help, just like we do with other stakeholders.
2. He has a large community that he is responsible for stopping trolls and jokers to protect.
3. He, like us, is trained in several forms of bad-ass martial arts.

So with Batman relying on Robin to keep him sane, technology keeping Iron Man alive, The Hulk being an example of even the angriest member calming down eventually and even Superman not being able to solve everyone’s problems … it seems there is quite a bit we can learn from superheroes. Join us for this week’s  #CMGRHangout  panel on Friday, April 8th at 2pm ET/11am PT to have some fun looking comparing your favorite superheroes to your community role!

+Jonathan Brewer, +Patrick Hellen and +Christin Kardos will be hosting the hangout with +Jenn Chen, +paula rosenberg and +Adrian Speyer on panel. +Christin Kardos and +Carrie Keenan will be moderating the Twitter chat using  #CMGRHangout .
