What kind of content leader does your company need?
In a job interview for a mid-level position, I was once asked “When you move into a senior role, do you see yourself as a strategist, a manager, or a practitioner?” Until that moment, I hadn’t realized that there are different paths that people can take to grow their skills and build their career.
Now, when I’m working with large organizations to help them articulate and hire senior-level content positions, I often come back to a variation of that question: Does your company require a strategist, a manager, or a practitioner?

Two days of fantastic talks later, our brains are jam-packed with new ways to think about content and design. There was no shortage of smart talks at the Design and Content Conference. But a few in particular stood out.
