About this webinar and our presenters

There’s not a communications professional in the world that hasn’t been affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic. From handling elevated and emotional conversations to collaborating with campus stakeholders from a distance, to figuring out how to work from home while awaiting grocery delivery, caring for children, battling isolation, or all of the above.

This experience has been the definition of chaotic for so many, but there is an opportunity to use these elevated levels of conversation to improve your content. 

In this webinar, Liz and Steve will share insights from their social listening analysis of more than six million conversations related to COVID-19 and higher education. 

Together, they’ll help you understand how insights from these conversations can help you improve your own content strategy—including creating different types of content, meeting campus constituents where they are, and amplifying content from your community. 

The strategies they share can be applied to any crisis situation, or implemented long-term to inform audience-centric content.
