121. Alex Hughes, Co-founder of CENTRL Office on National Expansion

Welcome to the Everything Coworking Podcast episode number 121!

Community Manager University:

I am about to launch Community Manager University which is a training and development platform to support Community Managers from Day 1 through becoming a Regional Manager. 

The platform includes mini courses that cover the major buckets of the CM role including:

  • Community management

  • Operations

  • Marketing

  • Finance

  • Leadership

 The content is laid out in a graduated learning path so that the Community Manager can identify what content is relevant to them given their experience. They will also get resources, templates, Q&A calls each month and a Slack Group for peer networking.
