Attending industry events can be fun and informative, but they’re not so much fun for the marketer whose time, budget and stress goes into making everything run smoothly. So it makes sense to get as much ROI as you can, by turning your hard work into written content too.

That means you’ll need a write-up. And unfortunately, years of scribing at client events have taught us that turning your speakers’ key takeaways into engaging content isn’t always as straightforward as it sounds.

In this audio blog episode, you’ll hear some of our top tips for producing post-event content, from how to the make the most of your time at the event to how to nail that first draft.

Tune in now to hear:

  • Common pitfalls, and how to avoid them
  • Why you should work out your angle before you begin
  • How food might be the key to successful content
