Welcome to the The Content Creation Collective, a meetup for all creative types with a penchant for digital - writers, bloggers, editors, journalists, videographers, designers and producers - involved in the creation of content.
Bouncing off the success of our last event for Social Media Week, we're giving you another fantastically festive CCC before the year is out. Expect the usual industry idioms, spunky speakers and night-time networking with extra mulled wine, mistletoe and festive cheer.
Our final event of 2012 will be taking place on the 27th November at 6:15pm aboard the majestic HMS President on Victoria Embankment.
We've got some fantastic speakers who will be discussing the seasonality and longevity of content and why when it comes to online publishing, timing is everything.
