Hi everyone! :wave_tone2:

My name is Marina and I am an Online Community Manager at Miro. Happy to be here with you and have a chance to create a space for all Miro users to communicate, collaborate, share knowledge and network with each other :handshake_tone2: 

It will be cool if you introduce yourself here in the thread - share where you work, live, your role and how you use Miro (share your bigger story with Miro here).

Feel free to add any other interesting information or even a fun picture with your pet :wink: This is the best way for all of us to get to know one another!

Hi everyone! My name is Brittni and I’m the Community Marketing Manager at Miro. I love meeting with each and every one of you and my greatest joy is creating a space where you all can come together in person and virtually. I’m also running our Miro Ambassadors Program here (message me if you’d like more details!)

When I’m not working at Miro, I’m playing with my two dogs, playing board games with my husband or singing my heart out at my favorite Karaoke bar.

Yay! Miro Heroes! :military_medal::trophy::medal:

 

Unlike the first introductions. I do not work at Miro. But I may as well for how passionate I am about the platform. I manage 50+ apps at salemwebnetwork.com project management, design, marketing, user support. I love it! I love the mission of the my company and using Miro allows me to get all my work done better!

 

Fun fact… despite working with mobile apps on a daily basis. I am able to keep my screen time to an average of 1.5 hours per day. Working in tech and living migraine free :laughing:

Hi everyone! 

My name is Robert Skrobe, and I’m the owner/operator of Dallas Design Sprints here in Texas.  My focus is on virtual design sprinting, process improvement and professional development.  I’m also the organizer of the Global Virtual Design Sprint and the manager of the (Design Sprint) Referral Network.

I am not well versed in Miro, but I plan on getting more acquainted with it in a run-up to the GVDS in May.  

Fun fact about me:  I host a podcast with my son about Roblox that gets 5x the amount of traffic and interest than my business podcast.  It’s called Alden’s Amazing Roblox Review and we have a lot of fun making it.

If y’all are into networking, you can find me on LinkedIn:  https://www.linkedin.com/in/robert-skrobe-8620901/

Looking forward to meeting y’all, and hope you have a good rest of the week. :)

FYI:  The pic is of me and my son at Disney World.  He asked me to ride a water ride 16 times (I counted) because the lines were so short (it was also 60 degrees outside… he didn’t care much). 🤪

Howdy howdy! My name is Kyle Chipman. I’m the Chief Process Officer at Chipman Design Architecture, a nationally licensed architecture and interior design firm. I’m moving from Chicago to Portland at the end of this month and could not be happier - clean air and gluten-free food :)

Miro has genuinely changed (and expanded) the way I think. Every complex project I’ve taken on, I’ve planned out first in Miro. No other platform moves at the speed  of thought quite like it.

I’m always down to share neat boards and better ideas in Miro. See you at the next V-MUG!

I’m an Agile Coach and visual developer (aka no code). I use Miro to do User Story Mapping with clients, to do trainings, and to build my own products. 
 

No pets, so here is a picture of me finishing another workshop and capturing the notes in Miro.

Hiii!:hand_splayed:

I’m Elena and I run Marketing team @ Miro! If you ever want to geek about marketing, data, growth, experimentation, or have any suggestions about the product - let me know!

We use Miro internally for *everything* and it truly improves the way our distributed teams collaborate and work together. From ideation to planning to design to agile rituals to process documentation. Now I believe that distributed teams will be the future of this worlds’ workplace dynamics, as they enable diversity & rapid innovation, all while being environmentally concious. And i’m so proud to be part of this movement in this amazing company. 

Anyway, I’m super excited about our community launch and can’t wait to see what we can create together! 

We love our customers!!!

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Tim Herbig and I’m a Product Management Coach and Consultant based in Germany (but working with clients all over Europe).

 

I use Miro for a variety of topics. Here are few:

  • Crafting my business strategy and OKR
  • Structuring Product Discoveries of my own topics and teams I’m working with
  • Creating templates (like Impact Mapping) for product teams to support outcome-thinking
  • To run remote workshops
  • To make talks and conference sessions interactive (see an example here: 
  • To structure and run fully remote meetups (more on that soon!)

I’m really looking forward to sharing what I’m learning with the community here and learn how others make the most of Miro.

 

Cheers!

Hi everyone

My name is Kian and I’ve been using Miro now for three years - its just so helpful for remote working and for bringing ideas to life…  we use it a lot for gathering client information, sketching out the as-is and to-be workflows and then on into design - a key insight for us is that when you can help clients to ‘see’ what you’re building, it can help to bring it to life in their mind. 

 

I like to use Miro to make Op Art pics (at the weekends)

Hi everyone!  I’m Annie MacLeod and Project Management consultant, coach & mentor based in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.  I found Miro - or at that time Realtime Board - almost 3 years ago and love it.  I tell folks its the sexiest software I’ve found in about 20 years!  

I’ve partnered with two other folks here in Kelowna to develop the Project Gameboard - a proprietary system to visualize, manage and move your projects from ‘chaos to completion’.  We’ve also integrated key culture components for organizations, project teams and project managers to build high trust relationships and practices.  

We use Miro to do workshops with clients - stickies rule!  We’re also exploring the Miro integrations with PM tools such as Jira, MSTeams, Basecamp, etc.  Really looking forward to learning from this great community.  

Here’s my view from my office and Prince William surveying his domain!

:wave: Hi everyone! 

I’m Melissa from the team here at Miro. I’m a part of our Product Marketing team alongside @Lena Shenkarenko and a few others, but I focus on the Enterprise side where we’re solving for effective collaboration at scale. 

Fun fact: I actually used Miro (yes, back when it was still RtB!) at my former company. I was working on customer journey mapping, found a couple of niche apps, needed something more flexible, and somehow found Miro in the process so I decided to switch over. I was thoroughly impressed at the initial experience of using Miro that I had to find out more about the team behind the platform. I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t heard of it before -- long story short, few months went by and one conversation led to another and now here I am a part of the very team I was (and am still) so fond of. 

I’m excited to get to know you all; we have the best users around and you all inspire us to build the right thing, in the right way, at the right time.

Connect with me here and on LinkedIn!

Hi Miro Community!

I’m Katie, a User Experience Designer based in Boston. I’m currently working internally as part of a customer experience team for PTC’s Training Organization. 

I’m a huge advocate for Miro within the team I’m a part of. I was the lead in reworking our design process as well as the effort to improve communication and collaboration across all teammates irrespective of location, and that’s when we landed on Miro.  It has completely transformed our workflow and collaboration amongst the remote and cross-office teams! In addition, I’ve been involved in presentations and training leading various teams across PTC to integrate Miro into their workflow.
