Your wish is my command.
On 13th February, we’re hosting a fabulous event aboard the HMS President (Near Embankment tube). It’s part of Social Media Week, so along with a great venue, we’ve secured an excellent panel of Speakers to entertain your ears (and eyes – they’re a blinking HOT bunch). They’ll talk you through some excellent Social Media case studies (revealing secrets about what worked for their clients, what didn’t work, what they did differently and how YOU can get the best results for your business or clients too…), give you exclusive insights into strategy and implementation of successful campaigns, answer your questions and probably have a bit of a lively debate between themselves too – we expect some controversial opinions and they’re a vocal bunch!
After the Q&A session has finished, we will (of course) be retreating to the bar when the fun will continue. You’ll get a chance to network with some great industry contacts (if you wish) or get a bit tipsy. Or both. There are no rules here.
As this is a TLLWTL event, there will of course be free drinks involved, Goodie Bags on offer and a whole lot of fun. Along with the educational/interesting stuff, we expect dancing, laughing & the forging of some great new relationships – if the previous events we’ve hosted are anything to go by, both business contacts and new friends will be made. One day, we may event get a TLLWTL wedding. Now that WOULD be fun.
Anyway. The panel consists of the following gorgeous and highly intelligent faces;

Of course, I’ll be on hand all night to ply you with canapes and bubbles, chat about Social Media, TLLWTL or just have a good old catch up. Unlike the last event, I’m not speaking so will have time to play hostess this time around. I’m easy to recognise if we haven’t met before – just look for the fringe!
