What is DOXAcon?
DOXAcon is an annual event that brings together industry leaders, marketing professionals, and entrepreneurs to discuss the latest trends and strategies in content creation and marketing. It is a platform to listen to influential speakers, learn from the conversations of industry experts, and gain valuable insights into the content industry.
At DOXAcon 2022, Wendy and Joana had the opportunity to meet with DOXA’s VIPs and clients, strengthen existing relationships, and build new ones. CEO Wendy Lieber was a keynote speaker at DOXAcon, discussing “How to Win with Content in 2023,” a timely and relevant topic that resonated with DOXAcon attendees.
“My talk was about how to win with content in 2023. It was to all the companies that were there… But I also really emphasized and talked about how important it is to have content for your team and to use content to create culture and to communicate with team members, especially when you are a virtual team.”
Details on the event
DOXAcon 2022 was a three-day event held in the Philippines. It was an excellent opportunity to meet clients, partners, and DOXA’s VIPs in person and learn how they work and their communication strategies with their customers. This wasn’t the usual formal corporate structure with a rigid schedule but a relaxed, vibing atmosphere with plenty of time to network and socialize. As Joana puts it:
“I’m used to the corporate structure. Then coming into the event or the meet and greet at that time, it was like, oh, we’re just vibing. It’s like, okay, this is cool. You don’t have a rigid structure of, ‘these are the questions you can only ask.’ It’s like, ‘go be free, my people!’ And it was very awesome to meet people.”
Day 1: Meet and greet
The first day was a meet-and-greet, where DOXAcon attendees mingled and interacted, getting to know each other and DOXA’s partners. This three-hour session was filled with conversations, laughter, and a whole lot of fun. After the session, you were allowed to do whatever you wanted. You were free to roam around, network, or chill. Joana chose to spend some quality time with Wendy.
There was also the year-end party, themed “DOXA Rocks,” where clients and other attendees came in dressed like rock stars. There were raffles and prizes that made the event more memorable. It ended with a Christmas baskets giveaway for VIPs.
“Then it was food and drinks. Everyone was networking and everyone was having good fun. At the end of the event, they gave away Christmas baskets for the VIPs consisting of the traditional Queso de Bola and spaghetti, you know, the typical Filipino Christmas.”
Day 2: Content day
This was the cherry on top for DOXAcon 2022. DOXAcon attendees had the chance to listen to Wendy’s thought-provoking talk on “How to Win with Content in 2023” in a ten-point presentation. 50–60 attendees participated in the discussion and engaged with Wendy’s presentation. Some of the notable points in her speech included:
- The importance of content in your team and how to use it to create a culture and communicate with team members
- Lead generation
- How important onboarding is and how to make it smoother
Day 3: CSR activity
On the final day of DOXAcon 2022, ContentBacon had the chance to participate in a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity in Malabon city. The team gave food, clothing, and school supplies to the 250 underprivileged families of the city, which impacting over 10,000 people.
They also interacted with the locals, took pictures, and got to experience a different side of the Philippines. The Filipino community had a rare opportunity to interact with a foreign company and show appreciation for their presence.
“Day three comes and it’s more of a CSR activity that we had. And then we gave away not just slippers – we also gave away a bag of vegetables, a bag of rice, five packets of noodles, and also crackers. It’s for the whole group that we were involved in. So there were families who would come in, and then they would be given all of those things.”
To mark the end of the CSR activity, the team had a closing lunch. Later, Joana and Wendy visited Ayala Museum, which showcases the amazing Filipino culture and heritage. They got firsthand experience of Filipino art, literature, and history.
The three-day-event was an amazing experience for Wendy and Joana that, among other things, helped to show that DOXA is a company that values its employees and clients. The event wasn’t just about content but also a great opportunity to bond with co-workers, meet new people, and help those in need.

DOXAcon 2022 was a testament to DOXA’s people-focused approach and commitment to creating meaningful experiences for clients and employees and matching them with their core values. Joana compares DOXA to previous employers:
“This is the first company, I’ve only been in three or four companies, and this is the first company, I would say, where it was people-focused. Once you get onboarded with DOXA, you’ll go through the whole training for a week or even self-based trainings… The standard is one week of training. They have a whole training library thing that you can access as a trainee, and then, once you have a client ready, they onboard you to their team.”
