Conference communications

Conferences are a rich source of insights, stories and other communication gems for your charity – but attending a conference can be as exhausting as running one. Often charities struggle to report from these events, overwhelmed by all the posters and presentations, and fuelled only by mediocre coffee.

Let me help you do justice to the exciting research that’s coming out of the conferences you attend and help your audience get the most from the day.

Conference communications planning

I can help you put together a plan for your conference communications and then attend on the day to stay on top of all those valuable blog posts and social media updates. I’ll also keep an eye out to gather great stories that you can use in the future.

Alternatively, if you’re on a limited budget I can help you put together a plan that you and your team can implement on the day. You’ll arrive at your event feeling prepared with a plan that gives you focus and clarity, reducing feelings of overwhelm.

Live blogging

If I’m attending an event for you, I can create live blog posts throughout the day to summarise the key messages from the speakers, picking up on insights and discussion points.

Live social media coverage

When I attend a conference, I can produce content for your social media feeds during the event. I can put out tweets or other social media coverage so that professionals who can’t be there, as well as patients and your supporters, feel involved. I can pick up on everything from event highlights and key learnings, to reporting on the conference atmosphere, the quality of the coffee break snacks, and other crucial information.  

Pre- and post-conference reports

Reporting from a conference isn’t just about the event itself. There are also opportunities for blog posts and other coverage in the run-up, and round-ups and reports after it’s all over. Make the most of an event like this and it’ll help you generate content for weeks or even months to come.

Here’s an example of how I worked with a charity to write great content around their conference.
