Content Strategy Consultant, Independent
Kerry-Anne lives in Cape Town, South Africa, where she spends her days consulting to companies about content strategy, and her nights learning French, playing drums, listening to Pearl Jam, and — let’s be honest — watching animal videos on the internet.
She’s spoken at several UX and content strategy conferences in the US and UK, and in 2012, she hosted the international Content Strategy Forum in her hometown.
Kerry-Anne has been working as a content strategist since 2009. Although she still loves a good content audit or style guide, she’s becoming increasingly fascinated with the intangible parts of the work — the politics, the constraints, the workflow, the people.
