In less than two weeks we’ll convene one of the most sophisticated discussions about content innovation in healthcare. And we’ve added a dynamic new keynote speaker to the mix: Margaret Coughlin, senior vice president and chief marketing and communications officer from Boston Children’s Hospital.
The Content Marketing World Health Summit runs Nov. 7 and 8 in Cleveland and gathers leaders from health systems, the medical device sector and leading agencies. They’ll engage in conversations and workshops designed to empower attendees to craft new and better content strategies that drive real ROI in their organizations.
Tickets are still available and can be purchased here. In an era where content – social media, web writing, video, magazines and beyond – is crucial to influence customers’ decisions, anyone who has to chart a healthcare content marketing strategy needs to attend.
Coughlin will kick off the summit talking about how Boston Children’s approaches the content creation process and the challenges they face in making it all happen. (Elizabeth Tracey from Johns Hopkins can no longer attend the summit because of a business conflict.) Coughlin’s experience is ideal for the current challenges in healthcare content. She’s responsible for building Boston Children’s patient volume, reputation and brand and has worked at the likes of Arnold Communications, Hill Holiday and BBDO with brands such as Reebok, Hasbro, Fidelity and Gillette.
She is a worthy peer to our other keynote speaker, Lee Aase of Mayo Clinic, who will join me to close out Day 1 in a question-and-answer session focused on Mayo’s social media efforts and what’s next in content innovation. Aase may be the biggest name in cutting-edge health content; he is the director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media and chancellor of Social Media University, Global (SMUG), a free online higher education institution that provides practical, hands-on training in social media for lifelong learners.
They are just two of a packed collection of knowledgeable speakers. Here are all the others you will hear from when you attend:
