Adapting Your Speaker Content In Times of Crisis

Whether you produce a blog, videos, email newsletters or something else, your content is a vital lifeline to reaching, engaging and retaining your audience. When we’re not able to reach out audiences on stage or in-person, this content becomes even more important.

In this session, Melanie will share five actionable ways speakers can adapt their content in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.

Melanie Deziel is the founder of StoryFuel, the author of “The Content Fuel Framework: How to Generate Unlimited Story ideas,” and an international keynote speaker recognized as one of the world’s leading experts in native advertising and branded content.

As a speaker, she’s taught marketers around the globe to brainstorm better, think like journalists and tell better brand stories. She is a member of the National Speakers Association and has graced the stages of industry-leading events like Content Marketing World, Native Ad Days, Social Media Marketing World, Inbound, SXSW, and more.


Andrew Tarvin is the world’s first Humor Engineer teaching people how to get better results while having more fun. He has worked with 35,000+ people at 250+ organizations, including Microsoft, the FBI, and the International Association of Canine Professionals. He is a best-selling author, has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and FastCompany, and his TEDx talk has been viewed over 5 million times.
