The Community MBA

with David Spinks


Welcome to the business school for community professionals who never went to business school. After taking this course you’ll have a deeper understanding of how a community fits into your business, key business outcomes community can drive, how to design a hyper-focused community strategy, and how to set up systems for tracking core metrics and outcomes. This course is perfect for beginner to intermediate level community and marketing professionals, and for business leaders who want to set up their community teams for success.

The Community-Led Event Program Playbook

This course is the first step in building a Community-Led Event Program for your organization. It is a practical course to give you the tools and insights you need in order to launch your program. You will build the structure of your program and establish clear goals, you will define the leaders and volunteers of your program, and will develop the application and onboarding processes to get them involved, and you will build out the playbook for your program.

John Stacey III
Director of Campus Operations, Course Hero

“This course made it possible for our team to establish a vision for our community… It took us beyond the content we needed; it took us deeper than choosing a platform. The CMX course essentially showed us that community was our product, and it gave us the vocabulary to develop a flexible and sustainable strategy.”

Melissa Emler
Community Strategist, Change School

“We knew we wanted to build a community. For us the value was clear. With CMX, we learned how to do it to ensure success. The training allowed us to structure our strategy in a way that has allowed us to deploy much faster and build engagement with the first users from the start. Thanks a lot for the course, you gave us exactly that we needed to get on track, launch and manage our community!”
