We're on the lookout for passionate individuals to lead as Champions and play a pivotal role in establishing Communities of Practice! 

Becoming a CoP Champion empowers individuals to establish and lead independent communities with the support and guidance from Digital Isle of Man.

Want to know more? Come along to our ‘Calling all Champions’ event for a talk by Bernd Petak - Digital Isle of Man Board Member, and Managing Director of Make IT Global - as he explores the benefits of Championing a Community of Practice, including:

  • Running a CoP: drawing on his past experience, Bernd will guide potential community leaders through the essentials of setting up and managing a CoP, and the benefits of doing so.
  • Knowledge Sharing: Discover how CoPs facilitate knowledge sharing and exchange among industry professionals.
  • Visibility and Recognition: Learn how active participation in CoPs can enhance your professional profile.
  • Fresh Perspectives: Gain insights from diverse experiences within the tech sector.


Qualities of a ‘Champion’:

While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, we are keen to engage with individuals who have a passion and interest in a specific area and are able to guide others with technical proficiency and understanding of their business domain (eg. Finance, Marketing, Operations, Crypto, Video Games & Esports, Safer Gaming etc)

Your ideas matter! We welcome all suggestions for potential CoP groups – from the conventional to the outlandish. Contact Events & Communities Manager, Annie Macleod, to bring your vision to life.


Our Commitment

Throughout 2024, Digital Isle of Man will actively support CoPs by:

  • Facilitating engaging events.
  • Providing essential resources for your CoP’s success.
