Session Date: 23rd March

Topic: Real World Content Marketing. We’ve seen consumers increasingly attracted by the ‘real’ world, as opposed to the virtual. What does this mean for content marketers?

Should they, for example, be doing more with live events and live streaming?

How many content marketing strategies are utilizing UGC successfully?

In light of Fake News has trust in brands become increasingly more important and how can brands optimize this through content marketing?


Dominic Mills, Consultant

Event: Video & Your Association
Date: Wed 22 Mar 2017 - Wed 22 Mar 2017
Time: 09:00 - 12:30
Location: Kings Place, London

Can video move from the periphery of an association’s communication mix to the tool that achieves all of your objectives? Is it possible to make video with minimum cost and minimum resource that actually makes a difference, and how can we possibly keep up with ever evolving trends for video and content in our digital world!?

To understand all of this, we need to understand more about the communication function at an association. What makes this function unique? What does a communication professional have to consider in a non-profit, membership environment? What are the aims of this function and what are the measurements of success?

We also need to understand the video landscape. Who watches what at the moment? In a world of constant stimulation, and saturation of content, how is it possible to create anything that cuts through and actually works towards an organisation’s objectives?

We have a strong association community in the UK, but are the US and parts of Asia embracing communication tools in a different way, what is their take on video use as an association?

We’ll be answering all of the above with insights from leading Association professionals, international association gurus, experts in digital marketing, and producers of award winning content, along with the view from C4 News’ Jon Snow.

Event: Huddle
Date: Thu 17 Nov 2016
Time: 16:00 - 16:30

In 2015 Mindshare had over 800 clients attend (great audience to get in front of!). I have attached Mindshare’s Huddle pack for further details.

‘Huddle for Good’ – exploring the concept of ‘good’

This could take the form of:

  1. Businesses – exploring ‘good’ in businesses e.g do you have a good businesses model?
  2. Media – exploring what is ‘good’ in the media industry e.g how do you ensure a positive media experience and put the consumer back at the heart of what you do? How do you keep this exciting?
  3. Work – exploring wellbeing, flexible working, work life balance, talent, diversity etc


  • The theme is not to explore the great charity work or CSR you may have done – it is about inspiring the future of the industry to be better and work smarter
  • They want it to be campaigning so can media owners bring inspirational people along or use Huddle as a collaborative toolbox to come up with something that does good

  • How does digital storytelling differ from analogue storytelling?
  • What skills are required to tell brand stories in a digital age?
  • Are brand stories best told and understood in a linear way, or can brands take a different approach, using different channels for different purposes?
  • How important is platform selection?
  • Which brands are doing it well?
  • What are the pitfalls of digital storytelling?
  • What role do, or could, consumers play in telling their own brand stories? Should brands allow complete freedom, or seek to control the process?
