10 reasons why I’m attending TCMA 2016 – by Nicola Donnelly

On the 2nd and 3rd June, I will be hanging out at The Content Marketing Academy in Edinburgh. For me – this is the most important business event I will attend this year. More so than trade shows, industry-specific conferences, local conferences and networking events. I am really excited about the next few weeks as the build-up gets going and we all assemble in Edinburgh. In this blog post, I want to share WHY it’s such a key event for me.

Your comfort zone is your dead zone, by Ann Handley

Instead of talking about Content and Marketing as Ann usually does, for this talk Ann motivates and inspires people to jump at the opportunity to do something that scares them.

Marcus Sheridan: Why you shouldn’t miss TCMA 2016

Marcus Sheridan was our Keynote speaker at TCMA 2015 in September, and it was far and away the best event that Marcus attended out of the 70+ events he was involved in in 2015.

Marcus is super impressed with the speakers that we have for TCMA 2016, and it’s only a handful of conferences that would have a line up like this United States….and we’ve got them to come over here to Scotland!
