Sarah Robinson knows more about building truly vibrant communities than anyone else I know.
Now, don’t get me wrong: there are many people who make more noise about it – ‘community’ is the meme-of-the-moment, and you can’t drop a quarter on a street-corner without 25 so-called social media / community-building experts picking it up and trying to sell it back to you.
Sarah differs in one vital way from most of the others who talk about community building: She’s actually done it.
In real life. With real businesses, for-profit and not for profits – and not just once, but many times. She knows of what she speaks from hard-won experience – as you’ll hear in this great interview, in which she explains the principles of building truly vibrant communities from her new book, Fierce Loyalty.
Fair disclosure: Sarah is a friend of mine, and I’ve had the pleasure of watching from the sidelines as she crafted ‘Fierce Loyalty’. I wrote the foreword for the book – not only because she is a friend, but because she has written a damn fine book, one that everyone in business should read.
