Workshop: Breaking Down the Grind of Community Management

When: Thursday, February 21st, 2019 from 7-9pm
Where: 3rd floor of Notman House / Cafe OSMOS (51 Sherbrooke Ouest – rue Clark entrance)
Primary language: English
Cost: free

Work-life balance in game development is being fervently discussed these days, with a necessary focus on management practices. But even under the best employment conditions, we must also take our wellbeing in our own hands. This can be especially difficult for Community Managers because social media never sleeps and being part of a community is so much more than just a day job. Based on my experience, I will give some tips on how to balance your personal and professional lives while occupying a CM position. I’ll present the strategies, tools, support networks, and safety measures I’ve come to rely on in my daily life.

Open to everyone of all ages, backgrounds, genders, and identities.
