What we're about

We are a group of Content Strategy Practitioners in Philadelphia, who aim to exchange knowledge and expand understanding of the discipline of Content Strategy. In order to achieve these goals, we endeavor to...

• Educate and inspire content strategists;

• Evangelize content strategy to the world at large;

• Create community, large and small;

• Showcase local and regional talent, and bring international talent local;

• Enable job seekers, employers, and collaborators to find each other.

We try to maintain a roughly monthly schedule of events for collaborative learning and talks with leaders in the discipline from the Philadelphia region and beyond. We have also been collaborating with other local groups interested in User Experience, SEO, and other related topics.

Please join the conversation!

Strategic Storytelling: Quick tips to listen, empathize, execute and repeat

It’s a familiar scenario: your organization gets the content bug and suddenly you’re off to the races, slapping up stories on your website or other channels with little respect for audience needs, brand expression, sourcing best practices, or how to create actionable strategy without dampening creativity. This workshop is designed for storytellers and makers who want to sharpen how they develop and apply strategic frameworks to their editorial strategies. It’s also for strategists who aren’t exactly sure how to start turning theory into a content operation. Let’s talk about actionable tips to combine creativity + process + strategy. Speaker Bio Brittney Dunkins is Vice President/Managing Editor of the JPMorgan Chase cross-brand newsroom. She was previously Director of Content Strategy at Converge Consulting, a writer/editor at George Washington University and a DC resident. Now she calls Philly home, and splits her time between finding best-fit content solutions for clients, painting (not very well) and exploring her new city. Her personality is equal parts Joe Fox and Kathleen Kelly. Schedule • 6:30 - 7:00pm Networking • 7:00 - 7:10pm Announcements & Speaker Introduction • 7:10 - 8:00pm Presentation & Workshop • 8:00 - 8:30pm Networking Thanks to our yearly sponsor, Think Company, for providing the food and beverages!
