Live Fix is an experiment exploring the intersection of life, live music and online communities.
Who Is Live Fix?
Live Fix explorations come from Chris’s never-ending curiosities about life, work, live music and the art and science of using online communities for business. Someone once asked Chris why he started Live Fix and this is what he said. Since then it has grown into the beautifully unpredictable and experimental adventure that it is today.
Chris oversees community management strategy at Esri. Prior to joining Esri, he’s led employee community and collaboration at Walgreens and guided organizations to develop and implement communities to build meaningful relationships with their customers. He uses Live Fix to share the meaning of his work experiences, what he’s learned and explore the future of the business of online communities. In case you’re wondering, all opinions expressed on Live Fix are his own.
Chis has also spoken about internal social media and community management at these past events:

Live Fix Radio: The Official Podcast for Concert Fans
The Live Fix Podcast is co-hosted by Chris and Colleen. During each episode, they explore the psychological, physiological and sociological impact of our live concert experiences. Though they are married and have enjoyed many concerts together, Chris and Colleen’s music tastes don’t always align, and they definitely have differing opinions on what makes a great live show.
That said, each show they turn the concert experience inside-out sharing provocative angles on concert news, fan stories, artist interviews, product reviews, free downloads and more. Yes, you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
