2011 – London

When I decided to organise CS Forum 2011 with Destry Wion and Randall Snare, I’d never organised a conference before. I learnt a lot, took some risks, made some mistakes, met amazing people from around the world, and got hooked on organising conferences. I went on to co-organise the London Content Strategy Meetup (1400 members), Confab London in 2013, and in September 2013 started my own event, Dare Conference (people skills for digital workers.) The thing I remember most about CS Forum 2011 was the feeling of meeting people from all around the world, coming together to talk about the challenges and opportunities of digital content.Jonathan Kahn, Conference Manager, 2011
