The Future of Illusions

Online event

At most companies, marketing and technical communications rarely unite even though both professions create content. Also, rumors abound that new technologies, such as chatbots and artificial intelligence (AI) might reduce the necessity of both roles or increase internal struggles for their funding. Learn how content created by Salesforce is displacing the future of these illusions. In this talk, attendees will learn:

--How to solve competitive content requirements across teams
--How to reuse content to build memorable customer experiences
--Why different teams across a huge company are creating content together
--Why techcomm professionals should market their knowledge and curtail their quirks

OUR SPEAKER:
Gavin Austin is a Principal Technical Writer at Salesforce, where he’s been writing a variety of content for over 16 years. He helped Salesforce radically change its content strategy in 2015, and he has delivered a number of highly-rated talks at Dreamforce, Intelligent Content Conference, Information Development World, Write the Docs San Francisco, University of Washington, Blue Shield of California, STC Summit, CA Technologies, Agile2013, WritersUA, LavaCon, and more.
