Shlomo: I met James when I lived in Beijing, and he is one of the major community builders and engine behind Barcamp, TEDx , part of the world economic forum (At least these are the ones I’m aware of…) and other events in Beijing.
I think your linkedin title says it all. “Media and tech: TEDx, Yang Lan, +others”. you’ve been doing so many stuff, how about helping out making sense in all those activities you do and what you are involved in.
So, you are super busy between YangLan (Oprah of China), world economic forum, Beijing commons, how do you balance everything?
Let’s talk about tech community building. You are one of the experts in my opinion on this in the China foreign community. You’ve done TEDx Beijing, and bar camp many times. What’s the drive building all those.
How do you start building a community from scratch?
What’s the best way to grow it?
Can you tell outline how you start a TEDx event? What exactly you need for that? Permission from TED?
You are a global shaper as they call it at the World economic forum . How do you join this organization? And what type of influence you have when working (volunteering?) there?
I think that for most startups traction is the most difficult part building a community around their product or service. How similar you think online community building is to offline community building? And if you have any best practices here.
What’s the best way to get in touch with you?
