My slides from my talk at Swarm Melbourne. Community building is just like taking a walk down the yellow brick road in the Wizard of Oz-- if you help others get what you need, you may get what every community manager wants: a healthy and engaged community, a community that's a strategic part of the organization, not an afterthought. Evolve your community to be an organization-wide discipline, beyond a job.
