eLearning Innovation is excited to announce that President, Laurie Pulido, will be attending the Madworld Conference in April, as a guest speaker. eLearning Innovation has worked closely with conference sponsor, MadCap Software, Inc., and is looking forward to the collaboration, networking, and knowledge-share that is bound to take place. Scheduled from April 13-15 in San Diego, CA, this multi-day conference is the premier technical communication and content strategy conference for technical writers, documentation managers, and content strategists.
MadWorld 2015 is a conference that is extremely valuable for existing MadCap Software customers because a large majority of the attendees are existing users, who can share knowledge, experiences, insights, etc. The conference makes the conscious effort to offer sessions that are not specific to any one tool or work flow, but rather best practices for any tech writer, documentation manager, policy writer, content strategists, and much more. There is an emphasis placed on networking, so the events are designed to give people the opportunity to connect throughout the conference. The events to take place are as follows:
SUNDAY | APRIL 13, 2015
4:00 – 6:30 PM
A TASTE OF SAN DIEGO CRAFT BEER

TUESDAY | APRIL 15, 2015
HAPPY HOUR ON THE BAY

You can read one review from last year’s conference here:
In order to find speakers for the conference, MadCap Software, Inc. conducts the call for papers in early July, inviting anyone in the industry to submit sessions for consideration. The variety of requirements for speakers includes, but is not limited to, conference speaking history, background, topic of submission, industry/vertical and creativity. This year the selection committee placed an emphasis on case studies and real world examples of people and companies solving complex challenges, as this was a topic noted by last year’s participants in the survey after MadWorld 2014. Additional topic areas or interest to the committee were translation, elearning and multimedia.
As a speaker for MadWorld 2015, the conference committee promises exposure, public speaking experience, networking opportunities, and of course, the chance to visit San Diego. Pulido is looking forward to the conference, and hopes to make many new connections while there.
