The Atlassian Community can help you and your team get more value out of Atlassian products and practices.
Today we are highlighting Laura Holton’s journey as an online and Atlassian Community Events Leader! From working in the Atlassian ecosystem through the lens of marketing, to advising charities as they learn agile, Laura shares with us her dedication for helping beginners succeed in applying the agile methodology within the Atlassian ecosystem.
As we spotlight Leaders in both Atlassian Community Leader programs, we hope you enjoy the journey each Leader has taken to find a community of likeminded people interested in growing their potential with Atlassian products and practices.
I probably first heard about the Community back in 2019. When I joined my company, the consultants I worked with shared the community as a resources and said “this is a good place to learn.“ I started asking a lot of questions and trying to find my feet, since it was my first time with Jira and Confluence. About four months later, I started dipping my toes into answering questions and found a love for giving back. After a year of building and building my knowledge, I finally plucked up the courage to apply to be a Community Leader in 2021! Now, here I am - and still loving being a Community Leader.

Is everything an answer? I fundamentally enjoy the community part itself and the impact it has, especially reaching new people and helping them. No matter who you are in the ecosystem, the audience is the same - all open to learning.
The two Leader programs require very different contribution, but at the end of the day they kinda fit in and around each other, which is what allows for the balance. For the online program, I have to set time to make sure I answer a number of questions, whereas planning an event can be a shared responsibility that takes time on and off to organize. Neither contradict the other and I can pull knowledge from each to improve on the other.
Thank you, Laura, for sharing! You can find Laura at the Rotterdam ACE.
