In times of information overload it is important that the right person gets the right information on the right time on the right device, presented in the right way with a minimum of effort. Sounds like a mission impossible, but a Content Curator takes care of this.
Under the influence of digitization new methods in the use of information arise. Thus changing the role of the Information specialist. One of those changes lies in the field of maximizing the value of information. Both the Information produced by the organization itself and external.
The Content Curator is the person who can judge the value of content and has the insight and skills to find, publish, share or distribute, manage and re-create content with added value for the organization.
The Content Curator brings Information Services, Marketing & Communications and the daily operational management together. By doing so he has a central position in the organisation.
