2nd Annual Content Marketing Retreat
Special Focus: The "How to" of Content Marketing
Expanding on the success of our first annual Content Marketing Retreat in 2011, this year’s conference will move beyond “building the case for content marketing” to sharing strategic insight and best practices on how to effectively plan, manage and measure content marketing.
This year's Content Marketing Retreat will dive deeply into what it takes to succeed with content marketing, with a drill down into the latest approaches, tools and services that make measurement, content creation, curation, publication, distribution, social media participation and lead generation more effective.

Come with questions and leave with a plan of action including insight on best practices and tools and services that will help you more effectively use content marketing to grow your business.

Day 1 Presentations
On Day 1, noted experts, authors and representatives of the “best in class” marketing and public relations tools and services providers will give you deep insight into problems, challenges and the “how to’s” of contemporary content marketing.
These presentations are not sales pitches; rather they’re deep insight and analysis that’ll be shared in a professional training setting.
Day 2 Breakout Sessions
On Day 2, attendees will have an opportunity to attend deep dive sessions into the products and services represented by the speakers. By the end of these two days, attendees will leave the Center with an accumulated base of knowledge that might otherwise take weeks to months to develop. See Full Program Details
Testimonials from 2011 Content Marketing Retreat
Content strategy is increasingly becoming one of the most integral components of PR. I recommend the Content Marketing Retreat for PR pros that want to gain insight into the leading trends and issues affecting content marketing and how to turn up the impact and effectiveness of their programs through great content.
-- ELIZABETH POWELL, Sr. Vice-President, Edelman PR Worldwide
Russell is doing great stuff up on Whidbey. I participated in the Content Marketing Retreat last year and the speakers were top notch, the venue good and I could really see this becoming an important conference under his guidance.
-- T.A. MCCANN, CEO, Gist, Inc.
[The retreat was] small and interactive but content/speakers much better than I expected. One of the best for ideas & best practices to take back to the office I've been to in a long time.
-- JOHN FREAD, KL Corp
I've had the pleasure of being involved in two of Russell's events held at the Langley Center for New Media. Both events - the Content Marketing Retreat and a Prezi Workshop - were unbelievably well-organized, professionally relevant and extremely well-attended.
I love coming to Langley to learn, think outside the box and getaway from the daily grind to think about new ideas and innovative marketing and professional solutions. Russell knows the community well and does a great job coordinating everything for out of towners.
I strongly reccommend attending or participating in any of Russell's events at the Langley Center for New Media and hope to be there soon helping others learn from my experiences as well.
Thanks Russell for providing a really professional getaway for people interested in expanding their mind!
-- ANDREW DAVIS, TippingPoint Labs, Inc.
My brain is fizzy with all that I took away from the 2-day retreat and I'm itching to apply what I've learned. Russell Sparkman did an outstanding job by bringing together 11 (!) field experts from diverse industries, and putting together a rapid-fire program that built on each speaker's unique perspective and lessons. The break-out sessions provided attendees with a great chance to work through real-world scenarios (from the group itself) or delve deeper into ideas of particular interest. I've been raving about the experience since I got back home. Thanks again to Russell, his team, the presenters and the volunteers who made this happen!
