ContentEd 2018

For the second year, ContentEd returned to London to bring together delegates from all across the world interested in advancing content strategy in the education sector.

In June 2018, we held the second ContentEd conference in London, bringing together delegates from 10 different countries, across 4 continents and working in over 90 institutions, to discuss content strategy within the education sector.



The two-day event saw delegates immersing in keynote and breakout sessions from industry experts, a panel session and a series of challenge workshops. Our delegates gained practical and insightful takeaways to implement at their institutions.

ContentEd 2018 featured five keynote speakers who introduced leading insights into content strategy in their sessions:

Alex Ayling – Head of Digital Studios, BBC Worldwide

Sarah Richards – Content Strategist and Digital Consultant, Content Design Centre

Mike Petroff – Director of Content Strategy, Harvard University

Tracy Playle – CEO & Content Strategist, Pickle Jar Communications

Rich Prowse – Head of Digital, University of Bath

ContentEd returned to London in 2018 to 30 Euston Square. The stand-out venue was rated 4.5 out of 5 by delegates and was the perfect setting for ContentEd 2018.


What our delegates had to say…

“The conference was the first of its kind that I’ve seen. The relevance to HE (the understanding of public sector constraints) but how to innovate within organisations set the right tone for the conference.”

The keynotes were fantastic, but the networking was probably the most valuable. I met a great number of people from all over the UK that had great new ideas.”

“This is, in my opinion, the premier conference for professional development for those working with content in higher education. The quality and knowledge of the speakers is outstanding and the passion the Pickle Jar team puts into the conference is very clear.”

“Fantastic venue and the best organisation of a conference I’ve ever been to.”
