Content training and mentoring

Content and content strategy workshops and bespoke advice

Contentious workshops get to the heart of the issues and reveal practical solutions. They’re interactive, fun, informal and deeply useful.

You get practical tips to take away, interactive exercises, interesting conversations and a generous supply of the famous Contentious homemade brownies.

We can tailor our training if you’d like us to run training in-house. Alternatively, send us your details and we’ll let you know about our open workshops.

We run training online as well as face-to-face, so it isn’t restricted by geography or remote working.

We often combine our training with the creation of bespoke content governance and guidance: useful resources that you can take away and continue to use long after we’ve gone.

We also do content strategy mentoring, which is a great way of getting help and support over a longer period.

The workshop was great. I gained a wealth of resources, materials and tools which I’m still going through!

Content strategy mentoring

Mentoring is a great way of getting help and insight for your content, your content systems and your workflow. We check in regularly and offer guidance, feedback and moral support. We share our experiences and we work with you to find the best, most strategic way through your content .

Collaboratively working on plans and documents together means you get in-depth, focused, tailored help exactly where you need it.

Content strategy mentoring is especially useful when you are working on a big project like a new website or a rebrand. But it’s also helpful at other times, making sure that you’re maximising the effectiveness and efficiency of all your content.

We can help optimise your systems and processes, set up a content audit or produce a content ecosystem map.

We’ll share some great tools and techniques, solving immediate issues and also equipping you for the future. We’ll turn you into a content strategy wizard.

The content strategy mentoring session with Julius and Laura is honestly the highlight of my week. It’s all downhill from there. 😂
