This event is being organised by the CIPD Coventry & Warwickshire Special Interest Group (SIG) for Self Employed
Developing more business opportunities is a constant theme in our SIG networking sessions. This development day gives you the opportunity to consider how you market yourself to HR professionals – and indeed others.
This session has been designed following our last development half day in July, and your feedback since. The event will feature a mix of speakers and round table development sessions, which include:
• HR, L&D and the “Gig Economy” - Input from HR Directors on selecting and working with independents contractors
• Tom Mallens from Social Innovation Media Ltd – Marketing Yourself through LinkedIn. Tom is a LinkedIn specialist who has developed a number of methods for helping professionals meet potential clients through LinkedIn.
• Proposal Perfection – How do your proposals come across? A highly interactive session facilitated by Karen Griffin and Phil Ingle. To benefit from this session, please bring along one of your client proposals, to share its layout and client appeal, and receive feedback and ideas for development. You do not need to share anything you do not wish to: redact any information which is sensitive to you e.g. client name, pricing.
• Website Workout – Tablets and laptops at the ready: what impact does your website make? Following on from the very helpful July session on website design lead by Caroline Endersbee, we invite you to receive feedback and development ideas on your website, which will help you attract more clicks, and in time, more clients.
In the afternoon we are planning an optional video production session. The idea is for up to 6 people to share the cost of producing a video/short videos for your website. For further detailson this session please contact Phil Ingle
