Being a Community Manager today is pretty rough. Honestly, just being on the internet alone is pretty rough but what do you do when things REALLY get bad? How do you survive when an announcement goes wrong or a launch goes bad? How do you handle it when you feel like you've got to solve those problems and make a difference in your community? Don't feel like you have to go it alone, ever. Let's talk about Crisis Comms, making sure you're taking care of yourself when things go kablooey, and those next steps to take to rebuild the trust foundation.
Speaker Bio: Stephanie started in QA back when you used to have to tape your gameplay sessions on a VCR and write your bugs on sheets of paper. With 20 years experience working with such companies as Disney, PopCap, Neversoft, Blizzard, Insomniac, and CD Projekt RED, she's worked on some of the largest franchises in video games. Her experience ranges from QA, Production, Marketing, Community Management, PR, Comms, and even some Programming! Stephanie hails from the greatest (& sometimes most annoying) city ever, Los Angeles, and is known to be the loudest in the room in voice, clothes, and hair most of the time.
