Content management no image

Anyone going to LavaCon?

The conference designed especially for technical communication managers, LavaCon, is coming up this November in Honolulu. this year’s theme is Advancing the Art and Science of Technical Communication and Project Management, and is presented in conjunction with the local chapter of the Project Management Institute. It’s an interesting way to get a perspective from another profession that has a fair bit of relevance to techcomm managers doing project-based work.

I’ve been invited back to speak, and will be presenting:
– It’s the Content, Not the Tools: Making Project Decisions to Ensure Smooth CMS Adoptions. This is an udpated presentation to what I presented last year, which was given to a full house, and received extremely good reviews.
– Content Convergence: The Future is Closer than You Think. This topic is more for the manager who is not content to manage operational tasks but who wants (or needs) to plan for the future.

It’s a quality conference for those who are looking for a professional development opportunity that’s not to hands-on, but more focused on strategy, planning, and management. And being in Honolulu from Nov 6-8th isn’t such a burden, either!
