Hello, I'm Claire Perry-Louise. Founder of LHL.
I design communities. I can't say I build them because humans are irrational & if you are going to try and predict the behaviour of a single human you are setting yourself up for failure.
To me what you need to be is an architect of communities, focus on the space you want to create and think about the conditions that will encourage people to have the conversations that they care about.
You then need to nurture the people within this space and if the conditions are right you will create a sense of belonging. This is community.
