Photo update – guest list for 12th November – Bristol Business Network

October 14, 2014

Photo update Guest list for this event……

The Next Event is 12th November at Old Down Manor – a brand new venue for Bristol Business Network.  (well not quite brand new as it was originally built in 1856!)

What is not brand new is the tried and tested and tested again formula for the event – effective since 1993!  A business seminar with networking over coffee, networking over drinks and a 2 course served networking lunch, hosted tables ensuring that you get the maximum in terms of conversations and connections to help you grow and build your network.

Old Down Manor

Seminar before lunch (optional,always rewarding, included in the price and a great networking opportunity) being hosted by Airhead Animation – Colouring in for Business Success

Grabs attention, communicates quickly, great engagement, lasting impression, your story brought to life, brings your service/product to life, exciting, diversity, testing options made easy, for training, for marketing…..

Script, story board, voice, music, colour, characters, props, logo, screen captures, rendering, publishing, sharing, hand drawn, kinetic text, photographic, whiteboard or not, DIY or professional….

The seminar will give you enough information to make the right choice as to how you can incorporate animation in your business

• How to produce your own Whiteboard animations.
• Where DIY video is appropriate and how to use it.
• If no one is going to see it why bother? Considerations for your distribution strategy.

Seminar attendees leave equipped with some basic tools which they can develop for themselves together with an insight as to where online marketing communications is heading and why video & animation are central to these changes and how it can be incorporated into their business.

Coffee and networking from 10am – seminar starts at 10.30 and finishes at 11.45am

It worked for me – a super little animation done by Airhead Animation!

Followed by
THE Networking Lunch
• Pre-lunch drinks and informal networking from 11.45am.
You sit with other decision makers – none of whom do what you do. There is a table host at each table and you have a 3 minute presentation to do for the others around your table – enthuse and inspire and build relationships. PLUS you will an Event Programme & seating plan which lists everyone attending , their name, business name and what their business does and importantly what table they are sat on enabling you to network with other – more business building opportunities!
