For content marketing specialists, speaking at events is an opportunity to share our knowledge and overcome those public speaking jitters.
Back in March, we gave each member of Kaizen, who had yet to speak publicly, the opportunity to conduct a Lightning Talk in the Pecha Kucha (PKN) style.
This was a mini-conference where each person could speak on any topic of their choice – work-related or not. Following the PKN-style, we each had 15 slides with every slide timed at 20 seconds each.

From brands jumping on the ethical bandwagon to understanding our target audience, the team spoke about a number of topics that helped to increase confidence and break down any nervousness.
Not only do we do Kaizen Skooling sessions for confidence benefits, but we also conduct them on a weekly to bi-weekly basis to ensure each person in the agency understands the roles and responsibilities of different team members.
Our agency has grown quite a bit recently. In fact, over the past few months, we’ve brought in 7 new recruits across our 3 main departments; content, production and PR.

Since March 2020, Google is allegedly now seeing the rel=”nofollow” tag as a signal rather than a clear directive to not crawl, index and judge a sites rankings accordingly. So, we’ve decided to figure out what’s really going on and have made 2 websites in which for one will receive nofollow only backlinks, and the […]
