5 Things You Could Do to Improve Your Local Community - Ivan Pedrazas, InfluxData & Dominique Top, Babylon Health

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Community is everything! Either if you're organising a meetup, or you want to organise one, or you are just part of one and you would like to do more. This is your talk!

In this talk, we will cover the different initiatives and efforts that we have been making in London to nurture, empower and care for the community. For example, we will talk of the Meta Meetup, a meetup for meetup organisers. We will talk also about Meetup Mates. An online community, with the aim to connect people who are looking to attend more Meetups in the technical space and make friends with people with similar interests. Why did we create it, how is it going and what's coming. Also, about Menta, an initiative to help mentoring, coaching and training.

We will give tips about how to make your meetup more inclusive, how to make people feel safer and more welcome, and what to do when things don't go as planned.
