Thursday 13th November

Businesses of all sizes are reviewing budgets as the credit crunch keeps squeezing the economy. We all know we should keep marketing, but how do we do that effectively when resources are sparse?

Come along to our November workshop which will feature FIVE EXPERTS each talking about a different way to promote your company and get MORE bang for LESS bucks!

This interactive session will provide valuable knowledge and useful activities that you can put into action straight away. Attendees will get time with each of the experts as we break into smaller groups which will then rotate. There will also be time to review what everyone has gained from the session and time for Q&A. Creative, practical and suitable for businesses of all sizes and sectors, sign up now or miss out!

Here’s who’s covering what:

Talking about how to get the most out of PR is Glen Poole, Communications Director of Neo Communications & founder of the ‘Bounce your Balls for Cancer’ campaign. Glen draws on years of experience working with high profile campaigns as a writer, strategist, PR man and media spokesman with a focus on fun, effective and inspirational content.

Soraya Shaw is the founder of Springboard Coaching which offers leadership development, management skills, executive coaching and mentoring, as well as bespoke programmes. For this session, Soraya will explain how to get the most out of Networking and other Face to Face Opportunities where you have the opportunity to market yourself and your services.

Charlie Allsebrook, one of the Directors at Brighton Community Partnership (BCP) and Lorraine Bell, Director of Simply CSR, will share their extensive knowledge on Corporate Social Responsibility and, how if done well, this can help to raise the profile of your company in a really positive way.

Peter Jenkins, Managing Director of e-Advantage Solutions, will share the secrets of marketing your business Online and how to get your head around all the weird and wonderful things the web has to offer. Peter will offer advice without using internet jargon or widget talk and can explain all the free stuff you can be doing to increase your web presence, a vital tool in business today.

Julia Chanteray founded The Joy of Business because so many people asked her for advice and support for their businesses. Julia has run a number of successful companies and is fascinated by the opportunities that running your own business brings. For this session Julia will tell us about how to be successful when asking for Referrals so we can win new business from existing happy customers. Julia explains techniques to use and why we shouldn’t be scared to ask (as long as we do it properly!)
