Hello to you all!

My name is Hugo and since 3 weeks I work in the consultancy team @ inSided. Most of you have got to know me as the community manager of Telfort/Hi/KPN, which I've been doing since 2009.

In my community management role I focused on testing and research of new products, services and communication with the community as a driver of engagement and sense of community, while also creating business value. It created an incentive to use the community over all the other possible ways to communicate with the company.

I concluded my journey at KPN last month with a fun super user event here in Amsterdam, this is the aftermovie:

If you have any questions or challenges I might be able to help you with, please share.

It was awesome meeting a lot of you at the inSpired event yesterday, hope you had a great and inspiring day/night. 🆒

Despite what Robin and Wouter are saying, basically we're the founders of InSided :-)
January 19th in 2009 we launched the T-Mobile Forum. In that time InSided was called Pocketinfo and had 2FTE and a dog.
Check this historic piece of evidence: http://www.pocketinfo.nl/t-mobile-lanceert-eigen-forum-11789/

But, alle gekheid op een little stick, this was and still is one of the greatest professional journeys I've been on. With a lot of failing, learning struggle and adapting we've built one of the biggest corporate communities in the Netherlands.
The T-Mobile Forum was a game changer for T-Mobile. It was the start for all social activities, the start of more transparency and a change in attitude towards customers. It changed the way Corporate Comms was working/communicating and how marketing designed propositions, We had to change procedures, policies, work-instructions and the moderators showed a new way of customer service.

Communities make it possible for all corporate employees to have direct customer contact, and they should! These employees will become improved versions of themselves. In the end, they will create a better company.

The future is bright guys!! Keep up the good work!

Hi all,
I'm Henri Villebrun from Brussels at Proximus. Working in the SDT (Strategic Digital Transformation) department, I'm in charge of the post sales relationship with our customer to support them via Social Media, via our community, via chat, ... and all coming modern and requested channel by our customer.
Any feedback on our selfservice supportive video are welcome : www.proximus.be/video
Today we are thinking about BOTS implementation, our CHAT served by a community and why not the same community of our Proximus' Insided Community.
My main challenges in 2017 will be to help the company to move from a "Call deflation" thinking to a "contact optimization" to sustain the best customer journey as much as possible.

Hello, everyone!

I'm Jurgen. I'm one of the community managers at Telfort (KPN). I've been working for Telfort since april. Previously, I was active as a knowledge manager for KPN Corporate Market.

My main focus as a sr. community manager is on HR, community strategy and special projects. My colleague Daphne, also community manager, is focused on daily operations, analytics and superusers (but she should introduce herself :$). I'm really proud of our small but strong team of 3 moderators.

Right now, the Telfort Community is being redesigned by Insided for responsiveness. It's an exciting process 🙂

Hi Guys,

I am the lucky bastard who could tag along on the great professional journey of Ruud & InSided and helped build the T-Mobile community, alsmost from scratch. That is probably were I earned my nickname forummother 😉 I joined T-Mobile not long after the launch. Together with the InSided team, Denise and the forumteam we passed many milestones, like 50.000, 100.000 and 200.000 members, 5 years T-Mobile & InSided, created so called "klant experts" program, launched T-Mobile experts (colleagues with expertise share knowledge @ T-Mobile forum), integrated the T-Mobile forum in our other digital channels (like app & web) and also had outages, iPhone launches. I feel like a very lucky bastard. All these milestones shaped me to the community manager I am today! Best job EVER!

Nowadays I support the forumteam with motherly advice when they need it! Because the forumteam is so mature, I have a lot of free time on my hands to experiment on community area within T-Mobile and build connections between society, (not)customers, colleagues and T-Mobile. That brought me to many new journeys. Currently I am building a Future Lab community where we connect with start-ups/entrepeneurs with great ideas, stimulate colleagues to share their knowledge with these entrepeneurs and play with new(est) technology and thereby prepare them for the skillset they need in 2020.

Hopefully we will keep on sharing our journeys, like we did the last years!
