All growth depends on activity as demonstrated on 4th July!

July 5, 2012

“All growth depends on activity.  There is no development physically and intellectually without effort – and effort means work” – Calvin Coolidge – 30th US President born 4/7/1872

What can I say – other than thank you to everyone who attended the event at Exeter Golf and Country Club for the considerable effort that they put in – there was certainly a huge amount of growth being planned.

The event kicked off with a “Mastering Marketing” seminar.

Hosted by

Alison Jobson DipM MCIM Chartered Marketer                                      Sarah Davey
Straight Marketing Limited                                                                               Cloud9 PR                                                                
Marketing takes a day to learn. Unfortunately it takes a lifetime to master” – Philip Kotler.
The seminar outlined the various marketing options that are available, highlighted the pros and cons of each and how to select the most appropriate marketing activity for your business. A

All be brought to life as Alison and Sarah worked through a live PR and marketing plan for fictional Penny Pinching Accountants Ltd demonstrating how it works with some real life case studies from their own professional experience.

THE Networking lunch that followed generated a room full of conversations, connections and opportunities.
