Join us at this month’s Business Growth Lunch which will be held at Bredbury Hall Hotel in Stockport to hear from guest speakers and network with business leaders from across Greater Manchester.
The discussion at this event will focus on digital technologies, their disruptive potential and opportunities that derive from them, both for new business ideas and sustainable business growth.
Our guest speaker, Michael Wilde, Sales Director at EventBeat will explain how the company repurposed and developed a piece of existing software to create the first ever twitter wall and consequently a SaaS (software as a service) platform that now allows brands such as Coca Cola, Vodafone and Twitter manage their social media content live at their events.
What will you come away with?
Michael will share the company’s experience on how working with the Hub advisors helped bring the business idea to fruition, increase client acquisition, plan sales strategy and effectively scale the business up.
You will also hear from Katie Peate, Head of Digital, Creative & Technology on how the Hub can support the businesses in the sector and why it is vital to the growth of Greater Manchester.
There will also be an opportunity for informal networking with like-minded business leaders from across Greater Manchester and Hub advisors to find out more about the fully funded support available.
Who should attend?
