Does the thought of starting an online community keep you awake at night? Do you spend endless hours cajoling (and we mean stalking) members of your existing virtual community 'to engage'? When called in to a Senior Management Team Meeting to share the depth of engagement and return on investment (gulp!) of your online community, do you run screaming for the nearest airport?

If any of the above sound vaguely familiar: never fear, help is near!

FSN Network's Knowledge Management Task Force will be hosting a 3-part Summer Series that taps into the collective wisdom of sector experts to bring you solutions to each of these challenges.

In our last session, we brought together a panel of experts to answer lingering questions and provide potential solutions to the challenges faced driving and measuring online engagement. Dar Maxwell of Engility Corp opened up the session by sharing expertise and experience on live online events, as well as blended online and in-person events. Following that, in a peer assist format, questions from our participants to our speakers drove the discussion.
