About this Event

The agenda for our next gathering is as follows:Meeting begins at 9:30am

Welcome and introductions - Olga Vandenbergh, Business Communications & Engagement

Council updates - Mathieu Rogers, Area Regeneration Manager

A beginner's guide to user experience and how to apply it to your business - More and more large scale, successful businesses either know or are beginning to understand the value that user experience or ‘UX’ can bring to their business, both when it comes to web design and business planning in general. However, latest statistics show that a huge amount of small to medium-sized businesses are missing out on this invaluable principle. A whopping 70% of small businesses do not have clear call to actions for anything on their website.During this session, Jilly Cross from Bravand will talk you through some of the key processes that larger scales businesses and their consultants use to develop their "user centric" approaches to strategy, product / service development and communications (including web design). She'll talk you through the do's and don'ts, and you will leave armed with a batch of tools so that you can apply the same thinking to your own organisation.

Building your business' resilence - The London Growth Hub business resilience service is designed to help businesses remain resilient and find new opportunities to sustain and grow, even during times of economic uncertainty. Join us to explore how Brexit, a changing global economy and local consumer insights could result in changes for your business – and how you can get ahead of the competition.

Zero Emissions Network - The Zero Emissions Network (ZEN) is a multiple award-winning air quality business liaison initiative. It's free to join the network and they help businesses save money, reduce emissions and improve local air quality. The network offers free advice and services to switch to low emission energy and travel options with the goal of making the City Fringe a better place to live, work and visit. We'll be joined by Constant McColl from ZEN who will tell us more and provide information on their forthcoming conference.

London Creative Network - London Creative Network (LCN) is a tailored professional development programme for London-based artists, photographers and designer-makers. Delivered by SPACE, with Cockpit Arts, Four Corners and Photofusion, it runs from Spring 2016 to Spring 2020 and they'll be joining us to tell us how you can access support.

Networking and refreshments - We think it's important these forums provide an opportunity for you to get to know your business neighbours, form new business relationships and use each others services. The last half an hour will be a chance for you to do just that.

Please also feel free to bring along any business promotional material you would like to share.
