Content Strategy Forum 2012, Cape Town

If your work involves content, digital strategy or user experience design, then you should be rushing to get a ticket for the Content Strategy Forum 2012.
With 29 speakers from 5 continents, representing companies like Facebook, MailChimp, Opera, eBay and Twitter, the first content strategy conference in Africa is shaping up to be a huge event.
Apart from the two keynote talks, presented by Luke Wroblewski (author of “Mobile First” and “Web Form Design”) and Kristina Halvorson (author of “Content Strategy for the Web”), there will be sessions on data visualisation, writing for low-literacy audiences, organisational voice and tone, the money side of content, the relationship between SEO and content strategy, handling content in the corporate environment, HTML5 for content creators, and plenty more.

Other speakers include:

  • Diane Murphy: Content Strategist, Facebook
  • Corey Vilhauer: User Experience Strategist, Blend Interactive
  • Kate Kiefer Lee: Content Curator, MailChimp
  • Thomas Bevan: Managing Editor, Western Cape Government
  • Rachel Lovinger: Experience Director/Content Strategist, Razorfish
  • Cennydd Bowles: Product Designer, Twitter
  • Melissa Rach: Co-founder, Dialog Studios

There are also four hands-on workshops on offer, where you’ll learn about content’s relationship to responsive design, the secrets of brand-driven content strategy, how to design websites and apps for multiple devices, and how to keep a handle on your content by making use of content models.
This is not the kind of conference where you’ll hear things you’ve heard a hundred times before. You’ll get to meet and hang out with the people who are shaping the content industry globally, and you’ll walk away with real insights, and practical, usable information.
