Start with the WHO: How to Build Community for the Emerging Future

with: Michel Bachmann

Michel has been building global community for the past 10+ years, working with networks such as Impact Hub, WWF and the League of Intrapreneurs.

Given today's rapidly changing realities, it may be critical to furthermore place the "Who" in context of the “Where & When”.
