The Definitive Guide to Strategic Content Marketing

"Content is a key lens for keeping the customer in the center of the picture and for allowing brands to meet them at the ‘intersection of permission and desire.’ A great way of understanding what that means in practice is to look at all the inspiring examples that are earning consumer attention in the attention-scarce world, so it's both an honour and privilege to be invited back to judge The Drum's Content Awards."

Justin Kirby is a consultant, educator and thought leader with a 20+ year career in industry as a digital strategist, producer and entrepreneur. He chairs and speaks at conferences around the globe, judges industry awards, and advises brands and agencies.
