Content Breakfast: Sport
About the event
Content Breakfasts at the CMA are a series of webinars with industry experts that we host on one morning, to discuss one topic from different perspectives. The aim is to up-skill you in different areas of content marketing and provide tips and tools that you can use to enhance your own strategy.
It also provides us with an opportunity to network with others in the content community, with the opportunity to share your take on the topic or ask the speakers questions about their presentations.
We’re excited to announce a Content Breakfast that focuses on the sport industry. This event will host a panel of content marketers that work within a sector that’s said to be worth £40bn in the UK. We’ll be taking questions from the audience, as well as finding out how some of the biggest names in sport do content marketing.
Our Virtual Content Breakfast will see each speaker present for 20 minutes, followed by a Q&A where you can put your own questions to the experts. They are free for everyone to join – we’d love to see you there!
