Get your new stationery and timetables at the ready – it is time for businesses to go back to school at Blackpool Expo.
Back-to-school mania hits this week, but it’s not just children across Lancashire who are donning their ties and new shoes as they return to education – Blackpool Expo attendees are preparing to be schooled on key business topics with a day full of free seminars on September 27.
“Everyday is a school day for businesses and Blackpool Expo helps with that by bringing together organisations to share ideas and learn new ways to manage your work with our free seminars.”
Nichola Howard, Blackpool Expo organiser
Blackpool Expo timetable:
10am-10.45am: Set for Success with NatWest
Start the day building the contacts and know-how you need to grow and protect your business by learning about ‘Boost’, a free programme aimed at driving small business growth by establishing connections between businesses and offering access to experts and resources.
11am-11.45am: Employee Attachment with Guide Dot You Solutions
Time to learn something new with teacher Phillip Parramore of Guide Dot You solutions as he reveals the concept and benefits of ‘Employee Attachment’. Not one to be missed if your business could improve employee retention and reduce recruitment costs.
Spend lunchtime connecting with old and new friends as we provide structured business networking opportunities to delegates and exhibitors.
1pm- 1.45pm: GDPR and The Future of Marketing with ATTAIN Digital
The new data protection laws are launching in May 2018 – and the punishment for non-compliance is a lot more severe than a lunchtime detention. This workshop will advise on how you can become GDPR and offer useful marketing ideas on how you can continue to engage your customers by publishing the right message using the right channel at the right time whilst remaining compliant.
2pm – 2:45pm: LinkedIn Launchpad with Neil Simpson
End the day with one of the Expo’s favourite teachers, Neil Simpson. Neil will educate and entertain you in equal measures on the key marketing topic of using LinkedIn more effectively to find more leads and create more sales.
