Content and content strategy training

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 come to you. Alternatively, send us your details and we’ll let you know when we have an open workshop scheduled.


Social media

Social media can be a powerful way to change people’s opinions and inspire them to take action or change the way they behave. We’ll share the best strategies, tactics and tools.

Strategic content

Content quality and the health of content systems are crucial to an organisation’s relationship with its users and audiences. We’ll show you how to measure what you have, and how to improve.

Perfect pictures

When thinking about content, people often think of words before images. We’ll show you why pictures matter, how to get good ones, how to edit them, how to use them and how to look after them.

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