Content Strategy Forum 2014 is over – time for us, the PR students at Hochschule Darmstadt, to take stock of what we heard, did and learned in the last few days.
Studying Public Relations at Hochschule Darmstadt means participating in a new practical project each semester. Fourteen of us chose to take over communications at CSForum14 to learn more about event management and, of course, content strategy. For some of us, it was the first time doing live communications for an event and some were already experienced in doing so, but it is safe to say that each and everyone of us gained new insights and learned a lot. From storytelling to story doing, from content creation to content marketing and from a packet of crackers to cracker crumbs – we were reminded that content strategy is a huge field and that there’s a million different approaches to it. According to #csforum14, not only we as students but also most participants take away new ideas and inspirations from the conference.
We are happy to hear that the conference hashtag was trending on Twitter and hope that we did a good job with maintaining the official Twitter account @CSF_Frankfurt, the blog and the Storify account. Thank you to all organizers and attendees for making CSForum14 such a successful and inspiring event.
I for one am looking forward to working in such an exciting field and am eager to attend events like Content Strategy Forum in the future to be inspired and maybe to inspire others as well.
So long, content strategists, and see you soon!
