Crossing the Divide between Technical Communication and Content Strategy at Dataomia

Technical communicators have many of the skills that overlap with content strategists, but they can find it hard to get involved in this type of strategic work. In this presentation, we'll explore some of the content projects Cherryleaf been asked to do for Datomia, a software start-up, and whether this case study can provide some answers to how people can break out of the "techcomm box".
