LavaCon wants to help you tell YOUR story.
At the closing session of LavaCon Las Vegas, Jack Molisani issued a challenge to attendees: Return to your organizations, apply what you learned at LavaCon, and come back to LavaCon Portland prepared to share the story of how you made an impact in your organization. Whether you produce content that increases revenue, reduces costs, reduces time-to-market, or increases customer satisfaction, your work has positive results.
We heard one complaint year after year: “No one appreciates what I do!” or “They don’t understand the impact of what I do.”
The reason senior management doesn’t understand the work that goes into content projects is because we aren’t proactively telling Management how our work impacts our organization, our customers.
LavaCon wants to raise awareness of your role and the valuable work you do, and we are excited to present the LavaCon Content Impact Awards.
These awards support our community, promote the profession, and reinforce ideas shared by the experts who speak at the LavaCon conferences.
SHARE YOUR WORK
The LavaCon Content Impact Award recognizes content professionals who have used content, user experience, or technical communication to make a positive impact in their organizations. The award is not a competition to see who made the biggest or best impact, but a way to celebrate the many achievements that content professionals make while expanding their sphere of influence, enabling organizational change, and ensuring customer success.
Tell us how you and your team have made a significant contribution to how content is generated in your organization. Have you created a portal to aggregate content across multiple silos? Or perhaps you streamlined how your group writes content by moving to structured authoring? Have you reduced costs or lowered tech support calls?
We want to hear about it!
SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY
Award recipients will receive certificates for each member named on the application, and an award badge to place in email signatures. Recipients will be invited to present their case study at a future LavaCon Conference.
Finally, the Awards Team will send a personal letter to your boss and to the president of your organization, informing them of your award and of the impact you have made to you success of your organization and your customers.
