If you were ever going to attend our meetup, but just haven't had a chance to make it out, you DO NOT want to miss this one! Kristina is THE preeminent authority on the topic of Content Strategy, she literally wrote the book. We will have limited seating for the event, so make sure you RSVP!

She is the author of Content Strategy for the Web; Content Strategy for the Web: Second Edition; the founder of Confab, The Content Strategy Conference; and the host of Content Talks, a weekly 5x5 podcast.

Kristina is widely recognized as the industry’s leading advocate for content strategy.

In 2009, she curated the first Content Strategy Consortium (as part of the IA Summit). In 2010, she delivered the keynote address at the world’s first Content Strategy Summit in Paris, France.

    First time out. Loved the interaction. Nice to have a presentation that is interactive. Very engaged audience with good questions that Kristina did a great job answering. And the fun meeting new folks is always a treat. By the way, here's some photos I took from the evening: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gr...­

    Awesome meeting! Great content and it was a pleasure meeting you folks. I mentionned that law firms and their solution providers may be great resources for guidance on how to manage content. They do so daily and are legally required to do so to support litigation. Houston based Sfile is an example of one (of MANY) such provider that started as a hosted legal ediscovery solution provider and expanded into content management for companies of all sizes - http://www.sfile.com/explore.ht...­.

    This was such a great meetup! I learned so much, met so many new professionals and surprisingly many job positions were offered to several first comers. The Dallas CS meetups get better and better with each meetup. Thank you for such a great evening once again!

    Kristina was very nice and decided to do an informal Q&A which lasted 2 and half hours. She took the time to help everyone in the room who wanted it and enlightened us all on how to problem solve with CS in our daily jobs and lives whether you are a developer, consultant, in house person or even looking to hire content strategist. It was a great presentation and everyone who attended was there to learn. It was a great dynamic.

    Great presentation! Kristina kept it real about content strategy. Also, there was a great turn out and it was a privilege to meet so many influencers on my very first meet up. Thank you!

    The meetup was amazing. Kristina is a fantastic presenter and had great antidotes and info related to the questions. Steve and his crew ran a smooth event.

    I am looking forward to the meeting in August.

    I thought Kristina was great. She was funny and insightful. I thought she made great points about where to begin and how to get buy-in.

    The beginning was kind of so-so, but things picked up towards the end, where Kristina made a very valid point. Content Strategy is nothing new. In order for it to work there must be collaboration between those that preached its message, and were turned away with those who are hearing the content strategy call to action for the first time.
