“Next Level Collaboration: The Future of Content and Design”

Imagine a future where siloed departments and legacy workflows don’t stand in our way. Today’s content is complex, interconnected, and needs to be ready for devices we haven’t even dreamed of yet. Tomorrow isn’t going to get any simpler. Successful outcomes demand a new kind of collaboration. For the past two years, Rebekah has studied how successful teams collaborate and has helped transform the way her team works and produces together. In this session, you’ll hear what she’s learned about making effective cross-discipline collaboration possible, and leave with actionable inspiration you can use to unite your team and workflow, too.

This talk will show you:

  • What it takes to make effective collaboration possible
  • How you can play a key role in creating the cross-discipline teams of tomorrow
  • Practical tips you can use to bridge silos, increase productivity, and deliver better project outcomes for everyone

“Smooth Sailing Post-Launch: Managing, Maintaining, and Improving Content”

Redesigning a website with shiny, new content can be hard. Managing, maintaining, and improving the content you’ve got long after launch is even harder. There’s so much we need to know: Is our investment in content strategy paying off? Are we communicating the right message? Reaching the right audience? Does the content support our business goals and audience needs like we intended?

Having a system for understanding performance, ongoing improvement, and metrics to measure can help us keep our content shipshape and seaworthy. In this hands-on workshop we will explore and practice techniques to:

  • Integrate smart measurement and testing into your content strategy that helps you know what’s working and what needs to be improved
  • Develop a plan for content management that addresses how we add, edit, and remove content from our websites
  • Navigate the often tricky waters of getting the buy-in and resources we need to implement changes and make iterative improvements
