Therefore, this event has been designed to explore how they might be able improve their own market position....and update the car to reflect their true skills and expertise.
This event will to be a practical one, designed to offer a take away menu of ideas, skills and tools provided by local marketing/ social media practitioners who could enable delegates to identify what is relevant and useful tips for their own businesses

• Explore ways to increase their business profile to generating new / additional level of interest in their business
