    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 a digital strategy with super relevant content that will improve sales AND reduce costs.

    We will also explain why having your name in lights at the top of google may not have the desired effect when it comes to delivering a return on your investment.


    SPOILER ALERT! We will demonstrate how our strategic growth model proves that you don?t need a big budget to get the returns you are looking for! Something that most companies that want you to spend more don?t want you to hear or know about.


    You will leave the session with clarity on how you can stand out from the crowd, reduce your spend and increase your results.

    Robert Clarke, Co-director at 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 business turnaround 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 customer 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 - Richard Hagen - Co-Founder of mPowr Limited

    Topic - Write Your Book, Grow Your Business

    Most business owners, trainers, consultants and entrepreneurs are experts in what they do. However, they have little impact or recognition beyond their immediate circle.


    Some are definitely not happy to just be an expert. They want something more... They seek leadership in their field.


    This seminar shares insights and strategies from the publishing and product-creation world that put solid foundations in place for true leadership in your field.


    Leaders in a field constantly reach large audiences, transform the lives and results of many people or businesses and grow their own businesses at scale.


    Some people think they just need to write a book or create products to become a leader or go-to authority. If only ...


    Leaders don?t make products. They craft powerful products, products that transform rather than bore or merely inform.


    But sadly, most business experts will make fatal errors right at the beginning of their book or product project. The result will be bland, generic and ineffective-both for the reader and the expert who created it.


    Following this seminar you will:



    • Be able to avoid being bland, generic and ineffective

    • Know how to shape your own expert to leader journey

    • Understand the role books and other products can play in transforming your business

    Topic - Stress and avoiding disputes - at home and in the workplace

    Work-related stress is one of the biggest health hazards in the workplace. Whilst there are many causes of stress, Validium, provider of the WPA 24/7 helpline, reports that over 50% of stress-related calls they take are linked to finances.


    This seminar will look at the vast range of services out there that we can tap into - ranging from financial advice to work therapies and training. Many of these services and benefits are free  - we just need to know what they are and where to find them. Various options to improve the work-life balance will also be considered.   The seminar will show how dispute resolution can provide the glue to ensure that things don't get out of hand.


    Many of us offer much-needed support to our customers, our staff, our networking colleagues and our families.  With this information at our fingertips we will be better placed to ensure a more stable future for all concerned.


    Lucy Long, a Healthcare Specialist will be joined by Mike French a Financial Planner and Louisa Weinstein who specialises in dispute resolution.
