The fast-paced, ever changing digital world has transformed the way we communicate — both personally and professionally. A profession that was once the writer’s domain is now shifting to favour digital “natives” whose core responsibilities include website development, social media and online advertising.
Communicators are increasingly charged with shaping their organization’s digital strategy, leading complex website and intranet projects — developing a deeper understanding of information technology along the way.
From evolving into a digital-first team to analytics to content marketing, the day’s sessions will feature presenters and panelists who have led the charge on digital for their organizations.
This event is sponsored by Postmedia.
Becoming a digital-first communications team: Our panel of senior practitioners will talk about the challenges, pitfalls and rewards of leading their organizations into the digital age.
Optimizing your content strategy: Content is more noise in an extremely noisy room without a guiding strategy to determine what you want it to do and how you’re going to get there. Learn how to set up an effective content strategy in this session to support your business goals.
Shaping your organization’s digital strategy: Change means opportunity. As technology transforms our profession, savvy communicators are using their digital skills to influence their organizations and advance their careers. In this panel we’ll try to answer two questions: the first is how can we influence our organization’s digital strategy? The second is more ambitious: can our knowledge and experience with digital get us a seat at the big strategy table?
