    The slides from this meetup are now available - In the meetup nav menu, under "More" you should see "Files." That's where the slides are!

    Would it be possible to get a copy of the the slides uploaded to this meet up? The messaging structure was really helpful, as were the many before and after examples of rephrasing the content to align with personality and message.

      Happy you could make it last night and so glad that you found the presentation useful. Happy to share it. Frank or Stacey: where can I upload the materials?

    Great job, eBay. Kudos to all the presenters. I learned quite a bit -- and I've been in Content Strategy for 10 years! It was also good connecting with folks I haven't seen for a loooong time.

    April 10, 2013

    • DeAnn W.

      Thanks, Elaine. It was great to see you as well.

    Being this my first Meetup ever, I think the standards have been set pretty high. Thanks organizers and eBay for sharing a lot of your experience and knowledge. The presentations covered content generation processes for all major types of content and unveiled how much eBay knows about its demographics. I only hope my next meetups would be as informational and well organized as this one :-)

      Thanks, Marika! If was great to meet you last night.

    Very insightful. I'm a rookie to Content Strategy and looking to transition primarily into a communications role from current job. Gave me a understanding at the content strategy roles at eBay

    Hi.. is anyone going from SF? I'd love to share a ride and share gas money. If not, I'll probably have to pass this one up..

    April 9, 2013

  • Val D.

    I have a seat and I see there's still a waiting list but I have a +1 I'd like to bring. Any chance I can bring them along?? (If you're not going please let the organizers know!)

  • Irene

    Had to give up my spot. :-(

    For anyone traveling from SF and taking 101 S...just a heads up that traffic past Sunnyvale is usually horrendous during rush hour. Give yourself plenty of extra time to get there.
