Content Technologist publisher Deborah Carver is available for speaking, guesting on podcasts, or collaborating on content and events. That's me, the I you'll hear from in subsequent sentences, winky face. My portfolio website is under renovation, and I'm the only speaker in the catalog at the moment, so this page is serving as a placeholder.

I'm an experienced speaker and absolutely love collaborating with other likeminded content and marketing nerds. I've spoken in-person and virtually at national and local conferences, hosted panels aplenty, and currently run events for The Content Technologist.

Keynotes

Breaking down personalization: The call and response of digital communications

What does it really mean when we say our content is personalized? Websites, apps, and devices constantly ask for our input, even when, according to privacy advocates, they're supposed to know everything about us. This presentation covers the reality of how digital personalization works, outlining common misconceptions about how devices and personal data communicate, and suggesting some more effective methods to engage your audience.

Succession, Severance, and Vanderpump Rules : What TV tells us about our work lives

As a person who works too much, I admit that in my free time I watch too much television... about work. In a talk that will rationalize hours spent in front of the tv set, explore how our culture's most talked-about tv shows reflects changing workplace power dynamics and management styles, from the point of view of someone who both manages, works and writes.

Workshop

Beyond narrative: Writing and editing professionally in the AI age

Let's navigate the sparkly, opaque waters of artificial intelligence together. This interactive presentation, designed specifically for anyone who makes content in your organization, discusses traditional publishing norms, intellectual property considerations, and machine learning technology, leading teams to arrive collaboratively at a shared definition of standards for AI-generated content. It's different every time, and your team leaves with a shared understanding of how to work with these new technologies.
