Insight, advice, news and chit chat

Can you feel it? It’s a big week – a week where London celebrates social media, with all sorts of events going on. I am fortunate enough to be speaking at three of them. Ok, only one of them is an “official” event but still. You can follow along on Twitter if you don’t feel like actually travelling all over London to the events. The hashtag is #SMWLDN

Today, I will be giving another talk to food businesses, thanks to the lovely Jane Milton – food marketing specialist – at the Speciality and Fine Food Fair at Olympia. It’s a real privilege to go to this event as it’s “Trade Only” so I get to see what goes on behind the scenes. I will then be doing mentoring seasons with the businesses there. We have a few clients who run food businesses – see our recent blog post “A collection of websites for food businesses” My friend and client Alicia Cowan was speaking there yesterday about time saving social media tips.

I have been asked to speak at an upcoming event called “Business Bootcamp – success on a plate”. This was through my friend the famous Jane Milton from Food Networking. We initially met on LinkedIn through Athena last year and have since met a few times and been to a few networking events and meetups (including Spa Networking!). Jane is a marketing consultant specialising in food related businesses and has a huge amount of experience and contacts in this field (see our blog about Jane here).

The event will be held at GCU ( Glasgow Caledonian University – London Campus) 40 Fashion St ( Spitalfields/ off Brick lane) ,  London E1 6PX, UK.

Below is a link to the full PDF about the event. Hopefully we will see some of you there!

Business Bootcamp Success On A Plate

The event is happening on the 6th to the 8th of June and I am going to be speaking on the 8th at 12:00 to the audience about the importance of having an online presence they can be proud of, and giving ideas and example about social media and online marketing.
