Slack AMA: Elizabeth Kinsey and Niamh Gorry, Community at Slack

About this event

Would you like to learn about the history of the Slack Community? Would you like some insight into how the Community has grown from zero to more than 10,000 members in a little over two years? Perhaps you’re curious about future Slack Community programs or want to know more about current offerings. Thinking of becoming a Slack Community Lead? We’re here to answer your questions!

Since joining Slack three years ago, Elizabeth Kinsey has been the driving force behind Slack Community. With a background in marketing, events and community, Elizabeth’s passion to bring people together has led to the community becoming a thriving place for Slack enthusiasts to learn, share and empower one another.

Niamh Gorry joined Slack a little more than a year ago and holds up the fort for Slack Community EMEA. Niamh’s background is in training, customer success and community, and she thoroughly enjoys supporting our Slack Community Leads wherever and whenever possible.
