Face-to-face occasions return for small companies with a free digital occasion at Alnwick Backyard
The Alnwick Gardens.
The week focuses on helping companies create engaging content, leverage social media, and implement, adopt, and pursue successful digital marketing strategies.
Starting Monday, September 13, companies will be able to register for the Business Northumberland local development program.
Business Northumberland will be running daily online workshops throughout the week.
The week under the brand name Digital Disruption promises to give companies the tools to be noticed online, to increase traffic, conversions and ultimately sales for the company.
The program culminates in a large event at Alnwick Garden on September 17th with a panel discussion by guest speakers and the opportunity to network and meet other like-minded companies.
Delegates can expect to hear from local business owners who have used social media to make their business a success and how they value the importance of strong content to ensure they engage and retain customers beyond their products and services .
Guest speakers include Ian McAllister, Head of Marketing and Communications at Alnwick Garden, to discuss how they have “disrupted” their social media campaigns using video marketing and TikTok, as well as guest speakers such as Catherine Johns, CEO of the Kielder Observatory and Ruth McGivern, Social Media and Marketing Assistant, with guest Jordan McCabe CEO of Aztec Diamond Equestrian.
Business will enjoy a hands-on, fully funded interactive day that will conclude with a roundtable discussion to give delegates a unique opportunity to interact and interact with field experts and to provide delegates with advice and experience.
John Hildreth, Head of Economic Growth at Advance Northumberland, said, “We are excited to host this unique event, which will be the program’s first in-person event in 18 months.
“Having put the program online so quickly due to the pandemic, I know the team and companies alike will be interested in engaging, learning, and networking in a personal environment.”
