Content Folks - March 2020
***This event is cancelled due to Covid-19***
Welcome to Content Folks! Every event has 2 talks on subjects relevant to people who work professionally with content.
The schedule for this event:
6pm: pizza, beer, and pop, kindly provided by Orange Bus (vegan, veggie, and meaty pizza will be available)
6:30pm - Content in Voice User Interfaces (Dani Allen and Helen Duncan)
Voice User Interface is a fairly new concept, and is still being developed as voice tech advances - for example, Amazon have created best practice guidelines for designing interactions for Alexa.
In this talk, Content Designer Dani and Content Strategist Helen will go through the basics of:
- designing content for voice interface
- good and bad examples of script writing
- accessibility considerations
7:15pm: Stick or twist? Making career decisions (Emma Cragg)
Whether you're ready for a new challenge or stuck in a rut, how do you know what your next career move should be? Career and personal development coach Emma will explore whether there is such a thing as a right or wrong decision and introduce a coaching activity to help you:
- evaluate your current situation
- clarify your strengths and motivations
- plan your next steps
Many thanks to Orange Bus, the event sponsor and our host.
Please note that tickets are free but limited, so please only book if you really intend to come. We don't want to turn people away because there are no tickets left, and it's also a waste of delicious hot pizza if we order too much. For this reason we're doing a '2-step authentication' style ticket booking. Booking a ticket here is you expressing an interest. In the week leading up to the event we'll email to check you're still coming - saying yes to that confirms your ticket.
See you on March 26th!
