YOUR BRAND: THE BEDROCK OF YOUR BUSINESS
Clair Wellsbury-Nye of TamarValleyGirl (that’s me!) will demonstrate her branding workshop, which guides business owners through what they offer, what they stand for, their image and personality, and what makes them different. This forms the foundation for all your marketing activity, and can help you make decisions about business development in the future.
David Crawford of Drakewalls Marketing will take you through his marketing strategy tips and how to get the best out of your campaigns by scrutinising current processes, procedures and monitoring measures as well as understanding the historic and future success and failures of campaigns. He’ll also discuss business branding, positioning and messaging to help improve your conversion rates.
TOOLS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
Me again! I’ll show you my favourite tools that make your social media marketing easier, from saving time and staying focused, to finding inspiration and creating your own images. Plus, I’ll tell you why Facebook’s latest changes aren’t the end of the world…
BUSINESS STRUCTURES, REPORTING REQUIREMENTS & HOW TO MANAGE THEM
Katherine and Andrew Wing of Wings Chartered Accountants will lead you through the different types of business structure – are you using the right structure for you? They’ll also be talking about the new tax system which will be brought in next year – ‘Making Tax Digital’ – and how you can prepare yourself for the changes.
RE-PRIORITISE YOUR WORK’LIFE BALANCE
For individuals with busy schedules and complex responsibilities at work or at home, David Buckley from The Summit Path will provide some practical and useful tips on how to thrive instead of survive.
