In this episode, I chat with Scott Gerber all about the process of building community. What I really liked about this episode is that Scott is locked up in his apartment in New York City with four kids and his family and he is teaching us about how to build virtual communities. He's done this for 10 years and built communities for companies and for himself and he knows how to do it in a very genuine way. That's why he is called the Superconnector, so whether you're starting a community for the first time or trying to re-engage an existing community that you started a long time ago, or even just participate as a more active member in communities, I think you'll find this really interesting.
Scott is CEO of The Community Company, an organization that builds and manages community-driven programs for media companies and global brands. He is the founder of YEC, an invitation-only organization for the world’s most successful young entrepreneurs. He is also the founder of Forbes Councils, a collective of invitation-only organizations for world-class executives.
Scott is the co-author of Superconnector and author of Never Get a “Real” Job. He is a sought-after speaker, regularly published thought leader, and a contributor to Adweek. He has been featured numerous times on television and podcasts, and his work has been honored by NASDAQ and the White House.
