The first annual Content Experience Explorer Awards (EXPYs) were created to celebrate and recognize excellence among marketers focused on the content experience.
All 36 nominees challenged the status quo by focusing on improving the way we experience content. Instead of scaling up content production, they’ve opted to focus on the experience to help educate, inform, and entertain their audience.
In short, these trailblazers are truly leading change in their organizations, each bringing their own depth of knowledge and skills to the practice of content marketing.
Our judges selected five winners whose organizations delivered a best-in-class content experience using the Uberflip platform. The winners were announced live at The Content Experience August 22-23, 2017 in Toronto.
And the winners are….
Ryan’s tenacity is what makes him a Content Experience Explorer. He democratized content generation and access to the content experience within his organization and put the power back in the hands of marketers in each of his company’s five business groups and 31 divisions. This change allows his organization’s businesses to respond quickly to changes in their market, share and reuse content across all levels of the organization, and engage leaders, marketers, and sales representatives. No small feat!
