[Originally presented at Intelligent Content 2014] It's been about 1000 years since the last time our basic understanding of communicating content has changed as much as it's changing today. Under the pressures of multi-channel and multi-device content challenges, the old rules we learned about good content and processes are breaking down. How do we optimize for all this diversity? There is a way to understand, master, and even leverage all this change before competitors beat you to it. This isn’t an industry issue. The challenges around discussing and making full use of today’s digital communication platforms are faced by all cultures around the world as they adopt them.
Contemporary research in cognitive science and neurobiology, leads us to new ways of thinking about communication at a basic, human level. This session could be considered a study in empathy. It offers cognitive science and neurolobiology lessons relevant to today's content landscape, and a common language to help you bridge the communication issues with your clients, colleagues, managers, and end users.
Don’t worry – this session isn't a jargon-filled nerd-fest, but a roadmap to navigating the world of content, today and tomorrow. It will cover techniques and methodologies to better structure content, optimize editorial processes, and build effective, influential strategies.
