I’m using the Shared Situation Guide (which uses the ProxThink growth model), as a collaborative document to collect meetup ideas and plan meetups for the Variety People LA meetup group. Here’s an upcoming meetup related to that. If you live in the Los Angeles area, please consider joining us!
If you’d like to adapt this document for your meetup group, or other meeting or event planning, please contact me.
