Anthony will be running the unconference at EuroPCom this year, and is also involved in NHSCitizen, a major participation project by the English public health service, to be covered by Olivia Butterworth during Mathew's workshop on online communities (more: http://mathew.blogactiv.eu/2015/07/27/three-online-community-case-studies-lined-up-for-europcom2015/).

So they thought they'd catch up live, as part of the workshop preparation. Because it's time to call time on ‘Park & Bark’ conference sessions (http://mathew.blogactiv.eu/2015/09/28/lets-call-time-on-park-bark-conference-sessions/).

Steve Clift (K-Hub's new Global Engagement Lead and White House Champion of Change for Open Government) gets together with Liz Copeland and Michael Norton (K-Hub's Customer Insight & Engagement Manager, and Digital Community & Knowledge Manager, respectively) to identify best practices for a workshop on online communities organised by Mathew Lowry (moderating) at next month's EuroPCom conference.

Thanks Guys,
Nice to see the ice being broken. I suppose one of the main points here is that the Khub is a "library" of discussions. Biggest prob we have is how to attract and keep a cop/coi. i.e grow the community.

Sure it needs to be complemented by interactive. But (from what I see in the UK) the great opportunity is bringing Local, and National, (theme) groups together (onto a combination of open/restricted platforms). I've posed that question in a National UK.GOV group. https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/5139031-5941074517890711555?goback=.gmr_5139031

We might call "discovering the right combination of tools" a khub. Others will call it an "open policy toolkit". https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/5139031-5968007721599926272?trk=groups-post-b-title

But the one thing which seems to be common to both ideas is (as Steph says) "I think we'd find it useful to have a destination we can direct people (with an interest) to". So, as usual, we're back to trying to entrench a National directory for (theme) groups, like these. https://gds.blog.gov.uk/2014/11/12/gds-blogs-round-up/

Seems like I back to pointing at your slideshare (slides 14 & 15) Matthew. http://www.slideshare.net/mathew.lowry/do-we-have-an-eu-online-public-space

Anyone want a nice Gautier wardrobe? One careful owner. Ideal for a kid's bedroom, it's just over 1m across, the standard 60cm deep, and currently disassembled in my garage in Auderghem, Brussels. Best offer here or on eBay.

8 things that don't work in my new Dell venue 11

I really wanted this machine to work, but when the keyboard loses its connection to the tablet every few minutes, the screen flips upside down whenever you detach it from the keyboard,  and you can't enter anything into online forms, it's time to send it back...

So, not available in Belgium. Why? Looking at similar remarks from other commenters, perhaps it would be better to ask what countries IS this channel avaiable in? And why is it not possible to charge outside those countries?

Very poor show to not provide this info in the About tab. One can only assume it's done by Americans, who don't seem to realise that there ARE other countries on the map...

Ezri Carlebach will be hosting a 'Rápido' session at Europcom on the theme 'What makes you feel European?' later this month. Presenters have 5 minutes and are encouraged to use images (as opposed to the dreaded bullet points...) to tell a story.

Meanwhile, Charlelie Jourdan, Co-founder & Creative Director of visually-oriented communication agency Old-Continent, will be moderating the "Images that tell a story" panel.

And Mathew, who's running the "online communities" EuroPCom workshop, thought it would be run to bring them together for a chat about enlivening conference sessions, visual communications and anything else that strikes our fancy.

Can anyone point me to someone with a best practice/case study in  convening and managing an online community for their brand or company, and who'd like to present it to over 1000 public communicators this October in Brussels?

I feel they could learn a lot from the private sector. More info below:

PS I've been quiet on G+ for a while, but I'm still listening! ;)
