We went on the move again for another On The Edge Marketing event where we partnered with Cambridge Marketing College in order to bring the necessary marketing expertise to the B2B marketers of Cambridge! This high-octane conference was packed with takeaways that should hopefully improve your personal performance and drive more revenue to your team.
Situated in the beautiful grounds of Cambridge College, we filled your brains with more knowledge about content production, distribution, customer engagement, client retention, social media strategy, business branding, inbound and outbound marketing and much, much more.
As with any event, there is always a very long list of people that we should thank so here we go!
A massive thank you to our host, Cambridge Marketing College, our sponsors, Brand Recruitment, Passle, Kingpin, on24 , CommuniGator, OST Agency, and OnlyMarketingJobs. An extra special thank you goes to our very own and ever entertaining, Simon Lewis of Edge Global Media Group, who did a marvellous job.
A huge thanks goes to our speakers who, I’m sure we can all agree, made the day a real learning experience! They are here to help you further if you do have any questions so do not be afraid to get in touch.
And finally, a huge thanks to our attendees. Without you, there would be no conference and the day was such a success due to your great contributions to conversations, questions to speakers, twitter interaction and networking at the complimentary drinks!
Thanks for coming & we hope you enjoyed it!
Please note that unfortunately, due to branding issues and company policies, not all presentations are available to be viewed online

About Adrian Hardy
Head of Marketing at BT
Though my degree was in Computer Science, my career quickly moved me to Marketing, where I have spent the last 20 years. I have worked in a number of major blue-chip companies, as well as running my own small business consultancy in Portsmouth.
My computing background has always driven my love of data, statistics and process: I have taken this forward into my marketing career, where I have been responsible for developing new – and problem solving old – Marketing functions and operations. Over the last 10 years, I have developed a number of methodologies and systems for understanding how to engage customers, nurture relationships and forecast sales which have proved invaluable and very reliable.
