Come talk about building online community for health and discuss with us:

  • What online community management is
  • What it takes to build a thriving online health community
  • Why some online communities succeed and others fail


Rich is the Managing Director of FeverBee, a highly successful online community consultancy, which boasts the world’s most popular blog dedicated to the subject, read by 15,000 community specialists every month. He offers community management training.

Over the last 11 years, he has worked directly on 12 successful online communities and contributed to the success of dozens more; with clients including the United Nations, Novartis, The Global Fund, BAE Systems, RSPCA and a number of large agencies, entertainment and youth brands. Rich’s clients have included the United Nations, The Global Fund, Novartis, Oracle, OECD, BAE Systems, AMD and several youth & entertainment brands.

webinar-colleenColleen is the Founder of #hcsmca (Health Care Social Media Canada) and the Community Manager of Canadian Virtual Hospice. She won the JMIR Award at Medicine 2.0 – 2012, Harvard, Boston for her presentation Community management that works: How to build and sustain a thriving online health community.

When I first started this blog, I intended to share my knowledge and experiences of building online communities. That was before I ran across Rich’s blog. I quickly became a pupil and enjoy translating the best practices of what I learn and discuss with Rich and FeverBee followers into peer-to-peer health and the not-for-profit healthcare setting.
