It’s the question I know you’ve all been asking… where can we see Andi speak in the next few months? Well, I’m here to help with that.
The last few months have seen training and presentations delivered for a diverse range of organisations that includes, the European Union (yes, they’re still here at the moment), Digital DNA, Tourism NI and Chester SEO.
Looking back is only half the battle. It’s the future that’s the interesting bit. So, here’s where I’ll be in the next few months. And yes, this list will be updated (and re-shared) once additional events are confirmed.
Ulster University, Various dates and times, Belfast, Jordanstown, Magee, Coleraine
Unless you’re a student on a course at Ulster University, you can’t come along to this! I’ll be talking about how to use digital channels to help boost job prospects for students.
As I’ll have a mic and a captive audience, I might also start talking about how being lucky in the job market doesn’t really exist and what really stands out when you go for interview.
The Craic – Thursday 19 April, The Dark Horse, Belfast, 18.30 – 21.30
This event is the launch of a new series of networking events by Lisa Murphy, owner of Blue Lemon Events. Known as the Come As You Are series of events, “networking” probably doesn’t do it much justice. It’s not a formal fire-your-business-cards-and-sell-to-as-many-people-as-possible type of event, it’s more about getting to know other business people, in a relaxed environment and see what grows out of that.
I’ll be talking about starting Eximo Marketing, the mistakes I’ve made, the wins I’ve had, the importance of talking to other people, not getting cabin fever, Wifi Refugees, the importance of giving back, why I think Gary Vee is a chump and many, many other subjects.
Future of Marketing: Part 1, Tuesday 15 May, ESpark Hub, Belfast, 09.00 – 16.30
In the first instalment of The Future of Marketing, I’ve been dropped on to the bill to talk about the future of marketing teams. Why? I hear you cry, when I work on my own most of the time. Well, because I’ve got some pretty clear views on the skills marketers need, the rubbish that needs to be weeded out of our industry and how to improve opinion the rest of the business community has about marketing and marketers.
The Future of Business is the brainchild of Peter Craven from Blue Sky Video Marketing and is aimed at more senior marketers. It will be held in the Entrepreneurial Spark Hub in Belfast. The rest of the bill has some great speakers on and it should be a great day.
The Pint Sized meet up gives you all the good stuff from Learn Inbound, but in a more relaxed atmosphere (if that’s possible) and in shorter bursts.
Never known for my brevity, this will be a challenge! Learn Inbound has some seriously brilliant speakers – Rand Fishkin, Wil Reynolds, Joanna Lord etc – so I’ll avoid talking anything remotely technical and stick to what I know best – marketing strategy.
