Wrapping up Confab, unwrapping CS Forum: a special event

Calling all content strategists, user experience designers, information architects, web writers and editors, web developers and technologists, marketers, communications pros, product managers, publishers and entrepreneurs: this is an event you won’t want to miss.

In a series of lightning-style talks of 5 minutes each (with plenty of pauses for drinks), eight speakers (including two international guests) will fill you in on what they learned at Confab, the groundbreaking U.S. content strategy conference, earlier this month—followed by a sneak peek of what’s to come this September at CS Forum 11 in London.

Hosted in the stunning Mermaid Centre, join us to learn, talk, socialise, discuss, network, pow-wow, postulate and surmise. And did we mention it’s free?

What we learned at Confab 2011

Fresh from the Confab content strategy conference in Minneapolis - the first event of its kind in the USA - these Confab speakers & attendees will share what they learned, what inspired them, and what it all means for the future of our organisations - as well as why content strategists are obsessed with cake. 

Content Strategy Forum 11: A preview

Whether you’ve already registered or debating whether to attend, you’ll enjoy these three Content Strategy Forum speakers (and one organiser) each giving a tantalising five minute preview of what’s coming in September.

  • Destry Wion (@wion): special guest visiting from Strasbourg, France. Organiser of Content Strategy Forum (Paris 2010 & London 2011), co-organiser of the CS Paris meetup, UX designer, and writer.
  • Diana Railton (@dianarailton): Founder of DRCC, specialist in corporate communications and content strategy.
  • Cleve Gibbon (@cleveg): CTO of Cognifide, content management expert, and marketer.
  • Charlie Peverett (@cpev): Content strategist at iCrossing, online journalist, and editor.


  • 6pm-6:30pm: Drinks in the Mermaid Centre’s Bridge Bar (cash bar)
  • Presentations start in the auditorium at 6:30pm sharp.

    I arrived awfully late for the initial mingling, but in time to hear most of the speakers. Some very good points were made, some contributions weren't really focused, IMHO. But I guess that's the state-of-the-art with content these days, isn't it? :)

    A great insight in the world of content strategy, as a creative it's not something I prioritise enough.
