We meant to build a brand.

For three years, I led influencer relations globally for Huawei Technologies based in Shenzhen. From a cold start we built a community of 125+ highly-connected people in 30+ countries. This helped the company connect with new audiences, and build long-term relationships.

We built a community.

In the process of influencer relations, an odd thing happened. A real community formed. The 125+ people around the world connected and inter-connected.

You’ll find surprises ahead as you undertake influencer relations!
