Don’t head for extinction, come to Brighton instead – how we brought #dontignoreit to Brighton

On the 18th of May, Alicia Cowan and I went to Brighton to run our now famous “Social Media – can you afford to ignore it?” workshop – which we have now run over 6 times (with the Twitter hashtag #dontignoreit). The reason we went to Brighton is because we had 2 girls from our December seminar -Emma and Esme from My Special PA – come up to us as and ask us if we would like to consider taking the course to Brighton. They had found our workshop so enlightening they could see it being of huge value to the Brighton business community.

In the weeks running up to our big event, Emma and Esme worked tirelessly spreading the word. In the end we had 40 attendees – and on the workshop day we found the audience to be energetic and interesting – asking lots of questions! The best thing is reading all the wonderful tweets and feedback from the day.

We have since got together to plan our next Brighton based seminar for November – we will of course be keeping all you lovely readers posted! In the meantime, enjoy some pictures below from the day!
