2015 Bitpod  hosting the business seminar before THE networking lunch

Exeter Business Network’s September event is taking place at Sandy Park and the events have been successful in generating business opportunities for people since 1993!

The event kicks off with the business seminar – Titled – Building relationships with online video – This seminar is ideal for both large and small organisations who are looking for fresh marketing ideas.
A short message from the host will I trust set the scene (a video pun!) “Video has the power to quickly change the way people feel about a person or an organisation. The new internet enabled, social media fed generation embraces personal and passionate video content and mostly ignores the rest”
Alex Wren from Bitpod shares some of the opportunities (with video examples) for building and growing a positive relationship with the right audience.
With coffee and networking from 10am and a seminar start time of 10.30am a great opportunity for you to benefit from conversation, connections and business intelligence that cannot fail to enhance!
Networking over drinks 11.45am – 12.30pm - Sit down for 2 course, served lunch with coffee at 12.30pm. Structured networking around your table with other decision makers.  Lunch finishes 2pm

More on THE networking lunch
