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 Robinson College on another gorgeous sunny day, 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, Kingpin, on24 , CommuniGator, and OnlyMarketingJobs. An extra special thank you goes to our conference chair , Charles Nixon of Cambridge Marketing College, 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.
