Whom are we looking for?
You want to share your insights from a content strategy or marketing project? Or radically question the industry lingo on content and develop new thoughts on digital communication? Or talk about a personal experience from your professional life that inspired you and might inspire others? Whichever angle you take on content and communication, you are very welcome to send us your proposal.
We are especially interested in content strategy projects for non-profit and non-governmental organisations. They have a very specific view on using content as a business asset, and we would like to learn more about this. In order to encourage speakers from this field we are planning to set up a special conference track named Content Strategy for a Cause. This will be a sponsored program, and as soon as we have secured the funding, we will give more details in our blog.
Content Connects is our leitmotif and leading thought for the conference. As an interdisciplinary future lab we are looking for real life projects and visionary thoughts from editorial, design, and technology, linked to business strategy and management. We want to learn from you how you collaborate with other disciplines and help enterprises, organisations and institutions to solve their business challenges in the digital age.
Whether you're a writer, designer, developer, or manager in marketing, communications, user experience, or IT - we want to hear your story!
We have structured the program as follows: On 2 July we will put an emphasis on the challenges we are facing in the digital age, on 3 July we focus on visions for the future. Your proposal should therefore address these subjects as shown in the following matrix.
Type of presentation
We will have talks and interactive sessions. You can present alone or together with a colleague. Slots will be 20 or 40 minutes, including time for questions from the audience. Please indicate which type of presentation and which length you prefer when submitting.
Inclusion and Diversity
The content strategy community has always been keen on including professionals who are under-represented at conferences. We believe that in the globalised world, diversity is an extremely valuable asset. So if you know someone who has not spoken on conferences but to your judgement could make a valuable contribution, please encourage her or him to submit a proposal.
You have never spoken before? Don't be afraid to come forward. We are looking for fresh - not necessarily young - talent and encourage you to submit your proposal. Still insecure? Check out these brilliant tips for public speaking by Zach Holman and you'll be just fine. Promised.
