From the people who bought you the Cambridge Marketing Meetup... This is a meet up for the marketeers of Norwich.
An opportunity to socialise and learn from your fellow marketing professionals on a range of topics relevant to the field today in a friendly, happy, welcoming and inclusive atmosphere.
Please come and join us on the second Tuesday of each month. We start at 6.30pm and around 9.00pm have a two speakers followed by open human connections.
We have a Facebook/Marketers Support group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/themarketingmeetup .
Anyone welcome so long as you come to listen, share and learn, not sell and shout over one another :).
Your relationship with tech & Learning to love sales
Paul Maskall, Cyber Security Consultant, Jungo
Technology isn’t the enemy, but our relationship with it could certainly do with some work. No doubt it has brought us all closer together through connectivity, social media and communication, but it has also pushed us further apart.
Our relationships, personal and professional, have been transformed to fit a model of convenience and efficiency. An unsustainable model that without a balanced and mindful use, contributes to stress and anxiety.
What has been designed to make us more productive, diminishes our ability to focus entirely in a sea of notifications and information.
It is about recognising that technology cannot be considered in isolation in regard to our own personal wellbeing, organisational culture and work towards a balance.
Caroline Robinson, Director, Sandler
There is often tension, or at least a lack of cohesion between marketing and sales with both sides getting frustrated with each other whether that’s in a large or small business.
Have you ever heard those in sales say ‘ I can’t do my job because marketing isn’t doing its’ or ‘marketing just isn’t producing enough good leads’ and on your side perhaps you get frustrated that leads get squandered, that money is wasted producing content that sales say they need, or that those in sales seem to get all the glory.
There is a better way, where marketing and sales can be happy siblings where one supports the other. How can we get to this happy place?
