High Engagement & Community Building – The Link & the Benefits

With Jessica Lopes, Event Manager at HYPE Innovation

“You need to keep your audience engaged.” We heard that sentence a million times for the last past year and a half, and it has been a learning curve for all of us to understand what engagement really means to us, to our audiences, to our top-managers etc. Networking session, chat feature, video meeting, polls etc. are tools offered by platforms that support interaction between participants, but tools alone are not enough to recreate your offline experience and atmosphere in an online environment. How about looking at engagement in a more sustainable way? In this session we’ll take a detailed look at how to use tools, features and activities to create a feeling of belonging and build a community that remains engaged on the long term.
