Event description
Acquire a toolkit of tips and tricks that will help you function in Slack!

About this Event

Join Antonia Issa, a past Slack employee in Customer Experience and someone who has helped teams onboard into Slack, to learn about Slack Best Practices.

In this 90 - 120 minute interactive session, you will have an opportunity to ask questions and share thoughts.

The session is geared towards people who have been introduced to Slack, and maybe use it on occasion.

You might be feeling like Slack is not meeting your needs, or maybe you feel a little overwhelmed. You want to level up and increase productivity and efficiency in your work. By the end of this session you will be able to:

1. Understand the culture behind Slack, which is important to using the software the way it was intended

2. Acquire a toolkit of tips and tricks that will help you function in Slack

3. Set yourself up for our next session around building workflows into Slack

Please bring your own laptop with Slack installed. Download the app here.

Guest Facilitator : ANTONIA ISSA

Antonia was employee 111 at Slack on the Customer Experience team. She worked in Support, helping customers with questions and problems and also ran the onboarding program for new support agents.

After 2.5 years at Slack, Antonia moved on to be a Learning Manager at STAT Search Analytics, with a not-so-secret additional agenda around helping the team level up in Slack. When STAT was acquired by Moz, Antonia led the culture and tooling merge of Slack workspaces.

Now, Antonia works at Airbnb in Business Development for the Open Homes Program and is leading efforts with another ex-Slack employee to revolutionize how Slack is used at the 9000 person company.

In Vancouver, Antonia set both SCWIST and YWCA Focus at work, up on workspaces with Slack's free standard plan for charity organizations.

I guess you could call her a Slack evangelist, who maintains a healthy perspective, and recognizes that while Slack _can_ brew coffee, it doesn't necessarily need to do everything in life.

*SCWIST affiliation: Antonia is a Steering Committee Advisor for Make Possible (Aug 2013-present), past Board Member and Director for Communications.
