Meetup good. Conference better?

The Auckland Content Strategy Meetup has officially survived a year! Since February 2014 we’ve met up at least once a month and talked content. And it’s been surprisingly fun. Emma, Michelle and I had no idea what to expect when we decided to give this thing a go, but there’s something great about building a group of people around an idea. As familiar faces (almost all of whom were total strangers last January) keep coming back, we know we’re onto something.

Which raises a question.

What next?

How about a New Zealand content strategy conference of some sort? Would there be enough appetite for a day or two of talks and case studies? I’d like to think so.

I keep thinking I should assemble a team and start something, just to find out.

Update, 2016: Anyone who doubts the benefits of procrastination and delay ought to be swayed by the fact that, after I sat on this idea and did nothing for the best part of a year, someone else decided to bring CS Forum to Melbourne in October 2016. Close enough for me. See you there!
