Nathan Sawatzky: In 2005, after spending many years in coffee, I joined a company called Club Penguin. Here, I built and lead a global team of community support reps who ended up helping millions of people from around the world. In 2007, The Walt Disney Company purchased Club Penguin and I was given the opportunity to lead Disney Online Studio’s Guest Services team and extend it into six new countries. During this time I was honored to participate in discussions around ongoing legislative improvements for online safety, and speak at conferences around the world regarding healthy and safe online communities for children.
Since leaving The Walt Disney Company, I’ve worked with several startups (including Tiny Speck, before it became Slack) and larger companies like Facebook. I care deeply about meaningful human interactions and hold a firm belief that companies who care for, and inspire, their communities will have a big hand in making the world a better place!
I’m currently working on three podcast ideas; The NateCast, Service Please, and Coffee Inc. While The NateCast is already live, Service Please and Coffee Inc are still in development.
