We are very pleased and excited to announce our first partnerships. We think partnering is the best way for others to get a sense of who we are – in the words of people we respect and trust. Adam Cohen at Rosetta, Michael Chin at KickApps, Aaron Strout at Powered, Mike Gotta at Burton Group and Mark Sylvester at introNetworks have supported and encouraged us before we had much to support. It’s partners that help validate that we are doing something valuable in the marketplace. They have been kind enough to share their thoughts on what we are doing on our Partner page.
One of the things we do for our members is use our networks and relationships to expose them to people, services, and products that we think are worth the time to evaluate. This is also true of the industry experts and facilitators that we bring in to lead our roundtable calls. It allows The Community Roundtable members to meet and talk to a broad set of the people and companies in the industry that we feel are interesting and relevant. All of our calls have a slightly different flavor because they are conversational and expert-led. Our value add? The programming calendar, hosting the calls, drawing members out, asking provoking questions – and then transcribing calls and pulling out the best practices and lessons learned from the experts and members. Our growing library of reports are testament to our partners and facilitators.
Check out our Partners and Facilitators – we are happy to be judged by the company we keep and we in turn recommend you take a look at the people and companies we work with – they are all working to help customers address the realities of the new media and information environment. We are working on a handful of other partners so look for more announcements in the coming weeks.
