Hub Practice Academy in beta version some days later.
Over the last 3 years, Hosts from
around the world met in '08 Rotterdam, '09 Sockholm, '10 Brussels (more photos here) and now Milan to
share learnings, support and inspire
each other. I have also been involved in organizing other gatherings like this very first one in '08 Madrid '08 and the First Strategy Gathering in '11 Madrid as well.
This year we invited
ALL core team members - hosts and
founders - to come together to learn,
grow and co-create the future of our
network. The gathering marked a new step
in our journey to become a leading
learning network in the field.
purpose was to put together the best
knowledge and talent within our internal
and extended network, get inspired by
best practices and set up collaborative
projects. We tried to: create, exercise and evolve the Hub
Practice make visible the learning and talent
we've developed to date and identify
what we need going forward bridge the gap between different roles
and practices within the Hub and align
around a shared vision .
We founded several communities of practice as a way to codify, share and evolve our practice together: Management and Operations, Community Hosting, Business Development of Hubs, Member Attraction and Community Design, Collaborative Space and Design. Here are the pics. Thank you Gabriela Albescu (Hub Company), Maria Glauser (Hub Talent), Frederike Vos (Hub Amsterdam), Tatiana Glad (Hub Amsterdam) and Elenanor Whitley (Hub Kings Cross and new HPA Coordinator) for the hard work and inspiration! Also Pablo Handl (Hub Sao Paulo) and Lotfi El-Ghadnouri for supporting us as well!
