swarm connects Community Managers with the aim of sharing resources, best practices, information and ideas, whilst contributing our voice to the discourse of our digital futures.

About the Project...

In November 2011, Quip organised & hosted the world’s first Online Community Management conferences in Sydney Australia.

The event now in its third year has attracted international talent such as Connie Bensen (MD of Community Execution & Strategy, Dell), Richard Millington (CEO, Feverbee), Justin Isaf (Head of Community, Huffington Post) and Maria Ogneva (Head of Community, Yammer) among amazing local speakers.

Over 110 Community Managers participated in the 2012 event in Melbourne, and swarm has fast earned respect as the industry & community for Community Managers.

Stay tuned for swarm 2013 which is set to take in September in Sydney. Follow us at @swarmconf for updates.

If you missed swarm you missed a day that was not only a great networking opportunity, but delivered what few conferences can: a diverse and interesting selection of speakers that delivered inspirational and timely information on community management. I recommend you don’t miss the next one.
