Does your content stink? Are you tired of dreaming of better, while your

audience is stuck reading stuff you just threw up there? For 15 years,

I’ve been breathing life into dying copy, redesigning ugly publications,

making award-winning audio/video, and having a great time making folks

happy. Now, there’s a name for it: Content Strategist. To most people,

that means an independent communications and creative professional. To

you, it means I fix problems. Washington DC-based and have worked with

organizations large and small, including nonprofits, foundations,

businesses, start-ups, even the government. I deal in four areas:

content, strategy, messaging, training. Visit http://percy-group.com for

resources, blog reading, or more about me. Or reach out to me at

percygroupcomm@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you, even if just to say

hello. Greg Roth

event

 

Friday, April 20, 2012

 

Diederich College of Communication, Marquette University, Milwaukee,

Wisconsin

 

The inaugural Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate

Communication Commons event will focus on the relationship between

corporations and society.  What expectations do key stakeholders have

for corporations as purveyors of social value and how do we communicate

in ways that allow these stakeholders to understand and believe the ways

corporates can and do meet these expectations.

 

The Corporate Communication Commons will provide an opportunity for

corporate communication professionals to come together to consider how

corporations embody social human values in ways that resonate with key

stakeholders.  The conference will consider issues that exist at the

intersection of corporate identity, shared values and stakeholder trust.

 

To register for the Corporate Communication Commons Conference, please

Maritime Security Forum – March 14 2012

United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut

 

The Surface Navy Association along with the Coast Guard Cuttermen

Association are

sponsoring our second Maritime Security Forum, entitled “Maritime

Security:

Guarding Our Country and Our Way of Life” to be held March 14, 2012 at

the

United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut.

 

This event will bring Navy, Coast Guard, Industry, Inter-agency and

International stakeholders together to discuss the Cooperative Strategy

for

21st Century Sea power and how it applies to maritime security.

 

At this event we will examine the threats to America and its allies,

both

large and small. We will look into how disruptions to maritime commerce

have

global implications and how homeland defense begins far from our shores,

and

involves a broad spectrum of participants, each with vital capability

and

capacity.  We will see how armed services and civilian agencies

cooperate to

share information and act upon that information and how industry

contributes

to global maritime domain awareness.  We will show how technology,

operations, policy, and information sharing must be coordinated to

achieve

maritime security.

 

We are presenting leaders who can address operations, policy,

technology,

and above all the importance of partnerships to achieve maritime

security.

No individual service or organization can solely ensure maritime

security.

38.)  Explainer-In-Chief, Newsbound, San Francisco, CA

 

Newsbound is seeking an experienced writer/journalist to work full-time

on an innovative, angel-funded news product being developed in San

Francisco.

 

With an emphasis on backstory and explanation, Newsbound is breaking

away from the breaking news cycle. We’re working to engage users who are

motivated to learn about a particular news narrative, but feel

overwhelmed by the pace and fluency of the 24-hour news system.

 

The news experience we’re building features a unique mix of explanatory

pieces and backstory-oriented content. As our explainer-in-chief, you’ll

work primarily on the former.

 

When we tackle a fresh narrative, your chief task will be to identify

the key concepts, systems, characters, and terminology that make the

story comprehensible. You will use existing research and reporting, as

well as expert input, to produce a series of pieces that illuminate

these “basics” for newcomers. In many cases, the content you generate

will be converted into animated videos and you will collaborate with

Newsbound’s design team on the storyboarding and pre-production process.

 

We are looking to hire someone who …

 

– is a generalist, with interests in a broad range of topics

– is frustrated by the lack of context in most news products

– is comfortable working in a fluid, experimental startup environment

– is willing to have their work regularly tested and critiqued by

in-the-flesh users

– is willing to work extended hours as needed, including some evenings

and weekends

– can write quickly in a conversational and accessible style

 

Applicants should also have …

 

– 4+ years experience writing and/or editing on deadline in an online

editorial environment

– A bachelors degree, preferably in journalism, education, history,

economics, or political science

– Thorough understanding of editorial best practices

– Experience leading independent projects and managing a small team

 

You’re especially likely to catch our eye if you have previous

experience with explanatory journalism and video/radio production.

 

We’re offering competitive salary, benefits, and equity.  If interested,

please email: josh (at) newsbound (dot) com. Send us a resume, clips,

and a link to your favorite piece of explanation on the web.   Finally,

tell us a bit about yourself and why this opportunity interests you.
