The impact that The Content Marketing Academy 2015 (TCMA 2015) made on those who attended was far greater that I could have ever imagined.
Even weeks on from the event people are still talking about it on social and writing to me to tell me how much of an impact it has had, not just on their business, but on their life in general!
I’ve been so wrapped up in the organisation and post-conference marketing that I’m just starting to appreciate what we managed to achieve with TCMA 2015.
I’m grateful for all the feedback, reviews and the support I’ve had from my family, friends and the hard work that Hannah and Tammie put into everything to do with the event.
Within days of the event some of the delegates wrote down their thoughts on their own blogs and so far we’ve spotted 12 articles reviewing TCMA 2015. It absolutely blows my mind that people have taken the time to showcase their opinion and what they learned from this amazing experience.
I’d like to personally thank everyone for attending TCMA and especially those that took to the Internet to blog about their experience.
I’ve put together below an overview of all the articles that have been published. Take time to read through them, and if you want to make sure you don’t miss out next year, register for TCMA 2016 here.
1 – Content Marketing: Getting the Basics Right by Maria Drummond (allthings)
“A couple of weeks ago Dave and I went to the Content Marketing Academy in Edinburgh. Hosted by Chris Marr, this is the only content marketing workshop in Scotland and with all the hype, it was set to be an interesting two days.
With speakers from all over the UK and a special workshop from Marcus Sheridan, it was more than interesting – it was a wealth of truly inspiring information.”
2 – The Content Marketing Academy 2015 Review by Gavin Bell (Blue Cliff Media)
“It was amazing to meet all the people I know online, face to face for the first time. The community that Chris has created is just phenomenal and I’m proud to say that I call all these people friends. I was overwhelmed by the volume of support people gave me, asking how the business is going and telling me they’ve been following our journey.
I can’t wait for the conference next year. It’s important now for me to act on everything I learned!”
3 – A review of The Content Marketing Academy: The benefits of meeting Marcus Sheridan by Kate McQuillan (Pawsome Media)
“This was VERY different – it was actually a very emotional experience as you saw people around the room just ‘getting’ content marketing.
People who didn’t really get blogging were seeing how it could impact their business, their clients and their lives. It was truly amazing and I was so happy to be a part of it all.”
4 – What I learned at TCMA 2015 conference & why you should attend next year by Kevin Gallagher (Stargazer Digital)
“The content marketing academy conference is far more that just somewhere you go to listen to someone talk for 30 mins. It is special, Chris Marr has created a community that has a bit of magic to it. It is hard to pinpoint what exactly it is but you can really feel it when you are there.
My biggest thanks has to go to Chris Marr because without him none of what I experienced would have been possible.”
5 – A report from The Content Marketing Academy conference 2015 by Gerry King (i-netco)
“There was an underlying connectivity at this event that I sensed the moment that I walked into the building on Thursday morning, from that point on everywhere I looked and each way I turned I was meeting completely open and friendly folk who were looking to learn, teach and share. A community in fact.
TCMA2015 was a perfectly formed conference that wasn’t really a conference, it was a workshop, a course, a seminar, a social gathering, a series of presentations by top drawer speakers.”
6 – Wow, just wow! The Content Marketing Academy conference 2015 by Debbie Kemp (mediachimps)
” I have done nothing but think of the event. It felt similar to going to the cinema to see an amazing film, going to the theatre to see an amazing show, going to see a live gig of an amazing artist…… ONLY BETTER.
You know when something has hit home when it consumes your brain for the following days?”
7 – The Content Markting Academy 2015 by Kevin Anderson (Square Tree Marketing)
“Today will go down as the day my business changed forever.
Chris Marr has created a unique community and delivered the best business event I’ve ever attended. The perfect blend of knowledge and inspirational motivation – it will live long in the memory. It’s given me the direction, and the drive to do more, and to be more.
For that, I am eternally grateful.”
8 – The top content marketing event in Scotland: A review of The Content Marketing Academy 2015 by Laura Lucas (Inspirential)
“I couldn’t wait for The Content Marketing Academy 2015 in Edinburgh. My buddy Chris Marr was the organiser. I’d loved last year’s event. But the main reason I was so excited was to meet all my friends (actual and virtual) who are part of Chris’s online community.
Oh, and meeting Marcus Sheridan, the keynote speaker!”
9 – how a conference changed my life TCMA2015 by Col Gray (Pixels Ink)
“A massive thanks to Chris Marr for organising what has been the best workshop and conference I have ever attended.
Last week I attended a half day workshop and full day conference in the fine city of Edinburgh and it has changed my life. I know, I know I can hear you tut and see you as you roll your eyes back in your head and thinking yeah, whatever you say buddy. I can hardly believe it myself, because come on now, we all know that most conferences are pretty goddamned dull!
Well I can assure you that The Content Marketing Academy 2015, TCMA2015 for short, was superb and an actual life changing event for me and this is how it did it.”
10 – TCMA 2015 Review by Allan Corfield (Allan Corfield Architects)
“What was most powerful about TCMA 2015 was the community spirit, as well as the enthusiasm for helping one another’s businesses grow. There certainly was a lot of love in the room!
Much of this we have Chris and his team to thank for – they have done a fantastic job of building the Content Marketing communities online, and a lot of hard work went into bringing in the calibre of keynote speakers we were treated to – so thank you!
We’ve all come a long way in a short space of time, and it’s really exciting to see what routes our content takes in the months to come.”
11 – 6 of the best:The Content Marketing Academy by Claire Brotherton (A Bright Clear Web)
“A big thanks to Chris Marr and his team for organising such a fantastic event.We heard a diverse range of speakers who all delivered great value.
It wasn’t just about the learning, though, it was also about the networking and socialising. The layout of the room supported this, with us sitting round tables rather than in rows.”
12 – I Though I Understood Content Marketing… Then I Attended TCMA 2015 by Kallum Russell (Acorn Enterprise)
“This EPIC event was organised by Chris Marr, owner of the Content Marketing Academy, and one of theAwesome Acorns on our very first 20 week Business Accelerator Programme, in September 2013.
The Content Marketing Academy 2015 has definitely changed the way I view my business and I’m glad I’ve already booked my ticket for TCMA 2016, with Mark Schaefer! Well done Chris Marr and team TCMA!”
So there you have it. Hands down these 12 reviews certainly beat me trying to tell you how awesome it was!
