Storming the Castle: How to Reach Those Who Control the Power and Purse Strings
Feb 5, 10:00-11:00 am (Pacific Time) Register here.
It seems sometimes like management engagement with your content strategy is like a great mystical prize sealed up in the highest tower of a maze-like castle; and there’s a huge moat; and the whole thing is on top of a mountain…
To actually reach it is a challenge that will in itself take a strategy, special tools (and weapons?), and a great mountain-climbing, maze-solving team.
Noz Urbina shares some of his experience on how we can get closer to our content strategy objectives by not falling at the first barrier: getting the necessary support to develop and implement it. Based on a career selling content strategies into a diverse range of organizations – from a few hundred staff to tens-of-thousands – some of his tips will involve judicious use of common sense, and others will be potentially surprising. Learn how you can storm that castle, and claim your prize.
Presenter: Noz Urbina, Founder, Urbina Consulting
