About the Program

Building Your Content Engine is an invitation-only virtual lunch meeting (think Uber eats codes, video networking) limited to a group of 30 senior marketing and creative leaders local to Vancouver. Our goal is to walk away with the same connections and insights we would have shared in person, doing our part to continue thought-leadership and peer-to-peer learning in a time of social distancing.

About the Content

In this age of hyper-personalization, marketers and creatives need to produce a near-infinite amount of content to deliver the brand experiences customers expect. Organizations have been rethinking the way they create, manage, deliver, and optimize content, using technology to transform the way their teams collaborate. Now more than ever, it’s important that even while working remotely, your teams are connected through the content journey – conceptualization to final execution and distribution. We want to examine what leading teams are doing (and avoiding) to improve their collaboration & content velocity from home.

Discussion Topics

  • Identifying efficient vs inefficient methods of remote collaboration
  • Removing friction from communication between creative and marketing teams during the content creation process
  • Introducing automation as marketers seek to speed up the process while creatives need time to create
  • Using tools and technologies to move toward operating as a content creation factory
  • Why creatives and marketers have different definitions for the term ‘content velocity’ and how that impacts workflow
