David Siegel, CEO of Meetup, on the Future of Events and Communities

by | Mon 29 Jun 2020

Unless you have been living under a rock, you are probably familiar with Meetup. They have become the epicenter of how people organize local and online gatherings and have become a fixture for many people and organizations.

David Siegel, CEO of Meetup, comes on Conversations With Bacon to dig into a broad range of topics. We discuss how the company has changed, where the future of communities is, the impact of COVID-19 on getting people together, his approach to leadership and growth, and much more.

This is a really fun and engaging conversation, in large part due to David’s authenticity and openness. There is no carefully crafted PR speak here: this is a genuine, frank, and open conversation, which makes for really compelling listening…and learning.
