Content Production Day at Jacobs Haus

On January 26, 2017, the Jacobs Foundation will be hosting a one-day event for communications and marketing staff of NGOs and NPOs, offering them a change of scenery and the opportunity to work and share ideas with counterparts from other organizations. Because space is limited, advance registration is required.

Are you trying to write a convincing presentation? An effective appeal for donations? An article that captures the reader’s attention? Sitting in your office, are you having trouble achieving the results you want? Perhaps you need a change of scenery!

We are devoting January 26 to the concentrated production of texts and other kinds of content. Individuals who write texts (or produce other content) for NGOs or NPOs are invited to join us at the Jacobs Haus, home of the Jacobs Foundation in Zurich. Everyone will work on his or her own texts, but there will also be opportunities for discussion. During two short breaks, attendees will talk about their projects, share their experiences and gain inspiration from their counterparts’ ideas and suggestions.
Since being introduced a while ago, content production days have gained popularity in the world of online communications. To bring this approach – a readily accessible way of encouraging interaction and communication – to our region, we are collaborating with content-marketing specialist Dave Hertig (Content Success), who launched the concept of content production days in Switzerland. The Jacobs Foundation will host this event for people from our region.

Are you interested in participating? Or perhaps you know someone who might like to join us? To register, contact us by email at The event is intended for people who work in the following areas:

  • Communications (corporate, project, digital communications, etc.) or marketing for an NGO or NPO headquartered in the Zurich region of Switzerland
  • Communications (corporate, project, digital communications, etc.) or marketing for an institution or organization that is active in the field of child and youth development or engaged in relevant research

This invitation will also be extended via social media. Registrations must be received by Monday, December 12, 2016, and the event is limited to 15–20 participants. Registrations will be processed in the order in which they are received.
