Community Team Leader | Canonical


Oftentimes when improving community engagement we focus on what is in front of us: what is one small step that we can take to make it better, easier, more welcoming for someone experience Ubuntu.

Once in a while though, it is time to take a step back and ask ourselves some of the existential questions—why do we exist? What do we want to be? How do we get there? What do we need to do? It shows us how every piece of the puzzle fits into the broader picture.

I have recently joined Canonical to provide dedicated leadership to Canonical’s Community Team, empower community leaders and those to be, and create an inclusive environment where people know what is happening in the community and how they can make a difference.

Join me to see the bigger picture and how we can build the Ubuntu Community together. You will learn about a few initiatives that I’m passionate about, find inspiration for how you lead the community into a common direction in your niche, and get some pointers on how to contribute.
