Your most passionate community members, your Super Fans are frustrated with you.

They don’t think you (and especially your colleagues) really understand their motivations, their interests, and their pet peeves. But sometimes they’re hesitant, or even unable to articulate their concerns.

Jake McKee, a 20 year veteran of working with community Super Fans will turn this happy hour into a Super Fan Confessional, channeling the voices of your Super Fans and their deepest darkest needs and desires.

These confessions don’t stay in the confessional, so you’ll hear about:

  • The “Super Fans are weird” stigma and how to make passion a celebrated attribute
  • How Super Fans consider your community to be theirs, not yours and what that means for how you build the community over time
  • The things that really motivate Super Fans to do more, engage more, and lead more
