Advocating from the inside out: Motivating your team to evangelize their work

Breakout
2:50 p.m.-3:40 p.m.

How do you ensure your content strategy practice is positioned for long-term success? It’s not just about finding talented people and maintaining voice and tone guidelines. It's making sure your team has a shared understanding of the practice and your company values their contributions.

Advocating for a thorough, quality-minded approach starts with empowering content strategists to do their best work. If the team feels confident and supported, then they can extend their influence and gain more support for content strategy.

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Articulate a clear vision and unite a team with a common approach, set of values, and definition of quality.
  • Create a consistent narrative and communicate the value of the team and practice.
  • Encourage cross-functional partners and team members to become advocates.

Who should attend: Managers who are growing teams, practicing content strategists and anyone interested in evangelizing the practice at their organization.
