Content Breakfast: Jobs in Content

About this event

We had over 2,000 content fans join our Content Breakfast events in 2020, which focused on a variety of subjects, and we’d love you to be involved this year.

If you haven’t attended one of our content breakfasts before, online or in person, they are a series of talks delivered by industry experts that we host in one morning session, to discuss a topic from a number of 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 an opportunity to network with others in the content community, with the chance to share your take on the topic or ask the speakers questions about their presentations.

For this virtual webinar series, we’ll be joined by content marketing leaders to discuss recent trends in the content marketing workplace. We will also be talking CVs, job descriptions, how to hire the best talent, and what to look out for when you’re job hunting.

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 free for everyone to join – we’d love to see you there!
