HOW MAYO CLINIC LEVERAGES ITS HEALTH NEWS ENGINE TO REACH CONSUMERS

APPROACHING CONTENT LIKE A SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR

In this session, Carlos Abler, Leader of Content Marketing and Strategy at 3M will share how digital disruption has driven non-publishing companies to become publishers (and app developers) to distinguish themselves via content effectiveness and excellence.  Learn how this disruption also mandates brands to function more like non-profits, NGOs and Governments to achieve excellence as social entrepreneurs and innovators, in order to identify the relevance required to deliver value-added content that matters.

ABBVIE: HOW COMPANY CULTURE AND PROCESS LEAD TO WINNING CONTENT IN A REGULATED INDUSTRY

Building a content operation from scratch is a daunting endeavor. A lot of groundwork needs to happen before achieving value, relevance and consistency. And while content is an important pillar in this building journey, culture and process are equally essential pillars. Content is what internal and external audiences see and hopefully engage with; culture is what is necessary to address internally, across the organization, to ensure adoption of content efforts; and process is what keeps a team on track and in full alignment with the company’s business priorities, enabling ongoing insight generation to ensure relevance. The highly regulated nature of biopharmaceuticals and the global reach of multinational companies like AbbVie heavily determine the ultimate goal of AbbVie’s content operation: increasing the company’s valuation and reputation. As one navigates through the challenges of building a solid, sustainable and strategic content operation, the order of the aforementioned three pillars (culture, process and content) matters, and, surprisingly enough, content does not come first.

WORLD SURF LEAGUE: CREATING CONTENT FOR YEAR ROUND TOP OF MIND EVENTS

The World Surf League was founded in 1976 and is the governing body for professional surfers. Dedicated to championing their sport and showcasing the world’s best talent their competitions were often only broadcast on television and at that they found themselves at the mercy of Mother Nature. Realizing how great their team was at telling a story for days and building up the excitement while waiting for the surf to be right for competition – they formed a year round content marketing team. By using content marketing via video, digital, and social as well as great feature and news articles World Surf League found a way to create year round excitement and anticipation for all their events. In this session, learn how they started their content team, create year-round content, and keep the spirit for surf alive.
