Social Media 101 : Swindon Business EXPO : BREAKING THE ICE ON SOCIAL MYTHS

on 30 October, 2013 No comments as yet -

BREAKING THE ICE ON SOCIAL MYTHS
& Rockin’ it up with a simple KISS xxx
• Is business in 2013 so different to 1980’s?
• Is Twitter for the birds? • Is E-Myth A-Myth?

Some might consider social media 21st century snake oil! Ex-squirts making easy money having you believe you are missing out on some amazing opportunities if only you used their unique magic formula…

Twitter + Facebook + LinkedIn + Blog + Youtube
+ Magic Ingredient = £££

In the 80’s I launched Acuvue Disposable Contact Lenses for Johnson & Johnson and I found the opticians using a local directory, plotting them on a map & then knocking on the door, saying, “Hello, would you like to know more about… ?”

In noughties I introduced EMAP to html email marketing by knocking on the door saying, “Hello, would you like to know more about… ?”

Last week I got my client 3 appointments with 3 local schools before lunch because we had Kept It Simple Stupid! KISS ;)

On Thursday 21st November 2013, Jonathan L Davey will be in Swindon for 1 day only to share 30 years of sales & marketing experience. Winner of Best Co-operative Advertisement Award for United Newspaper Group in 1990, Social Media Week’s Social Media Personality of the Year 2012 and the highly acclaimed “Most Annoying Dad” Award from my daughter in the same year! (She’d turned 17)

social media award winner

I’ll start by clarifying my position… share how you might want to engage in 2013 and then turn things around so you can walk away feeling more knowledgeable than when you walked in the room! Marvellous…

GO BOOK YOUR SEAT AT SWINDON… best be quick!

If you’d like to know how I could come and run a seminar / speak at your event then please enquire below…

Thank you.

Social Media Week #smw13

on 14 September, 2013 No comments as yet -

In February 2012 I became Social Media Week’s Social Media Personality of the Year because I have such great rapport with my audience that when I asked them to join in the fun and vote, they did… how much social media influence do you have? Perhaps get along to one of the 243 events organised for this year and learn something new…

    Humber Business Week

    on 30 May, 2013 No comments as yet -

    Humber Business Week (Biz Week), the world’s largest festival of business now going into its 9th year, showcases the impressive industry talents this great region has to offer and, over the years, has seen hundreds of events inspire and educate tens of thousands of people within the Humber and beyond.

    Founded by Mike Firth and Dr Paul Sewell OBE in 2004, the Biz Week baton was passed on to a dedicated steering group in 2011. The team has taken the great achievements of its predecessors, emulated its impressive history and seen it grow with the vital support of sponsors and event holders.

    More than 7,000 delegates attended Biz Week events in 2012 in what was hailed as a huge success with many event holders returning to run bigger and better events this year. Success came in all shapes and sizes with some quoting it as an impressive way to highlight that Hull & Humber is “open for business” while others confirmed Biz Week as “an opportunity for businesses to acquire new knowledge, gain better understanding and insights into key development and also to improve their networks.”

    3rd – 7th June… find out what’s happening…

    A variety of event holders work together each year to develop a diverse programme that will meet the needs and interests of a range of delegates. Events include: breakfast meetings, keynote speaker lunches, expos, conferences, workshops, tours, celebration receptions, and even inter-company sporting tournaments!

    Biz Week traditionally culminates with the Yorkshire International Business Convention. Over the past few years an incredible line-up of speakers has included: Bill Clinton, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Sir David Frost, Elle MacPherson, Bob Geldof, Rev Jessie Jackson, Colin Powell, Dave Stewart, John Cleese and William Hague.
