    Presenter - Anne Williamson, Customer Love

    Topic - How the Principles of Dating Can Help You Grow Your Business

    Are you putting people off doing business with you, without even realising it? You may even be losing future sales because you have treated your customer like a one night stand. It is so easy to fall into the trap of looking for new business all the time, whilst ignoring the customers you already have.


    Being in business has so much in common with dating, it is all about building quality relationships with our customers. In this fun and interactive seminar you will be taken through several of the stages of dating and discover how they apply to business. Each stage will be backed up with real life business examples - not dating examples that is a totally different seminar!  Packed full of hints and tips for you to start wooing your customers (in a business sense).


    I have spent over 25 years in marketing, constantly building relationships with customers (online and offline) and have always been driven by delivering the best customer service possible. My book "Are you a one night stand business?" delves deeper into where businesses can be losing sales through the way they treat potential and existing customers. My 25+ years marketing experience is backed by my Professional Diploma in Marketing but delivered with a cheeky G & T twist.

    Presenter - Robert Clarke and Paul Whitfield

    Topic - Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising



    Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising That Some Digital Agencies Do Not Want You To Know About


    You would be forgiven for thinking that the ?top of page? ads are reserved for the highest paying customers. The truth is that the amount you are bidding is only one of five factors that determines your ad position.


    We will show you how to create high quality ads with super relevant content that will improve sales AND reduce costs.


    We?ll also explain how associated benefits (i.e. brand awareness and increased traffic) may or may not have the desired effect when it comes to delivering a return on your investment.


    SPOILER ALERT! ? We will demonstrate how our growth model proves that you don?t need a big budget to compete with the big boys! Something that those companies that want you to spend more don?t want you to hear.


    Robert Clarke ? Co-director of BrightRED, Robert oversees digital marketing activities for businesses in many different sectors. His experience in online advertising ranges from campaigns for FTSE 100 companies to sole traders.


    Paul Whitfield ? Following 15 years working in the corporate world, Paul now operates a portfolio of businesses in the North West. His frustration when engaging online agencies led Paul to invest in his own agency. This experience of online advertising as a customers and also as co-director of BrightRED provides a unique insight from both sides of the table.


    Both Robert and Paul are passionate about using their combined experience and knowledge to help SMEs to develop and grow.

    Presenter - Sarah McDowell, The Leader Centre

    Topic - Do Less to Achieve More

    The world is changing at a rate that is unprecedented. The demands on businesses to keep pace with that change are huge.


    Faced with this challenge many leaders have simply tried to batten down the hatches and do more and the outcome is that they are stressed and at capacity but still not always delivering results.


    The facts tell us that this isn?t working anymore. Despite working harder than ever our people haven?t got any more productive in the last 10 years and yet we are expected to group our businesses every year.


    In this session Sarah will provide an alternative way of leading that is more suited to growing our businesses in the fast paced world we live in today which more importantly involves doing less not more.  Sarah will also highlight this challenge and share what leaders are really employed to do. 


    In addition she?ll share the 6 things leaders should do and the 6 things leaders shouldn?t do to grow their businesses without doing more.


    The outcome from the session will be a new way of working for leaders that relieves some of the pressures they face and delivers results.


    Having spent 15 years developing CEO?s and Directors at The Academy for Chief Executives Sarah understands the challenges of running a business. As a chair and latterly as Head of Chairman Development Sarah spent those years developing ways of resolving those challenges.


    Now running her own business Sarah specialises in helping senior people who are incredibly busy and under pressure to achieve more by doing less.

    Presenter - Colin Lock + Caroline Deutsch

    Topic - Recruitment, Onboarding and Induction. The complete package.

    For most organisations, recruiting a new member of staff represents a major investment, measured in terms of both time and money. And of course it brings with it great expectations of success.


    But sadly, sometimes the hire doesn't work out as anticipated, either they leave, or you have to let them go both of which are highly frustrating - you're back to square one!


    The hiring of new staff is a business skill that all managers will likely have to apply at some stage in their career.


    Caroline Deutsch, Director of Select Appointments will take you through the various stages of the recruitment process; from defining the role and the candidate requirements to interviewing and selecting candidates and making an offer.


    Colin Lock of ThreeR Consulting will explain why it is necessary to plan and implement a comprehensive onboarding and induction programme for your new team member; and how to do this.


    Their intention is that at the end of the seminar you will be more competent - and confident - in managing all aspects of the recruitment process.


    Both Caroline and Colin plan for it to be an interactive session so please do come with questions.
