Creating content can seem daunting, even for industry experts like yourself.
But whether you’re preparing for a speaking event, writing a blog post, or recording your first podcast episode, what you have to share matters more than how you deliver it.
In this episode, Ana Trujillo Limón, Director, Coaching and Advisor Content, speaks with Tamsen Butler, Senior Marketing Copywriter at Carson Group, about Tamsen’s journey as a writer and TEDx speaker. Together, they explore the TEDx talk preparation, the role of original content, and the benefits of engaging with audiences through writing and video. Tamsen emphasizes the importance of subtitles for accessibility and SEO and advises creatives to embrace rejection and address client queries in their content. The conversation also covers influential industry figures, with a recommendation to follow Larry Sprung, and the value of Stephen King’s “On Writing” for writers.
