Building Communities That Last. From Scratch.

Wednesday 4th November: 15.00 - 15.30

The world of community management has changed. Now not only do most studios need one, they need one that can build from nothing - which can be the key difference in pay grade, experience and in some cases value for money. Community Development Veteran Stevie Ward talks through some key theories in Community Development and how you can specialise in growing them from nothing, making them strong, and building them to last.


  • How to find your community
  • How to get them talking to your brand
  • How to get them talking to each other

Stumbling to Success: The Fall Guys Phenomenon

Tuesday 3rd November: 13.00 - 13.30

As of 26 August 2020, Fall Guys has sold over 7 million copies on Steam. Multiple outlets have gone on to describe the game's popularity as a "phenomenon”.

Stevie Ward, Community Developer from PC Gamer,  interviews Oliver Hindle Fall Guys Community Director and Haley Uyrus, Head of Brand Communications for Mediatonic on their hilarious and relatable social media presence, their brilliant communications and community strategy, and their approach to community collaboration that has helped to make Fall Guys the most downloaded PlayStation Plus Game of all time, the most-watched game on Twitch, and the initiative that raised over 1 million dollars for SpecialEffect.
