About this Event

This session commissioned by Oxford Innovation, in conjunction with Little Kanga Ltd, is for small business owners and those who are wishing to understand more about how digital and social media platforms, can be used to enhance their business offering SPECIFICALLY for B2B companies operating in STEAM based markets.

If you are a customer of Oxford Innovation, this is a FREE event irrespective of which centre you are located in.

If you are not part of the Oxford Innovation supply chain, then you are still welcome to join us on a totally FREE basis, as we seek to support as many small businesses as possible that need great help and advice.

This is the first of 3 sessions being brought to you in a series; so that you and we can gain a better understanding of your business growth needs and how we can support you.

Is your company stuck?

Do you know who to go to for help and support for digital and social media?

Did you know that social media platforms should now be part of your sales and marketing strategy? Not just for marketing content and making things 'look pretty' but for actual return on investment?

Don't know where to start?

Petrified of all of it?

We can help to support your next steps

This session will cover the following areas:

A round table discussion with other like-minded business owners at a similar growth stage who may be experiencing the same developmental issues in their business.

A chance to meet with others and network in an informal way to problem solve and remove barriers to knowledge and growth.

A short presentation around the best social media platforms and an explanation of the different social media platforms that are suitable for B2B and insights for beginners into how social media should/can monetize a companies value proposition.

This is an opportunity to HAVE YOUR SAY, provide feedback and get the answers that you have always wanted, to the questions that you need to ask for growth.

What this event is NOT:

Another social event with endless coffee and no action

A chance for people to spam one another with business cards

An event where you will feel uncomfortable in a 'show and tell' death by PowerPoint environment

Who this event is FOR:

Companies already employing 1-30 people with ambitious growth plans

Those companies who are turning over in excess of £80,000 per annum or start-up companies in their infancy in the digital; IT and STEAM field and market verticals.

Technical companies with no formal sales team or process who need advice and guidance on funding and scaling-up, but have found the 'traditional' routes lacking.

Those companies that have exhausted their address book, previous customers brought over from their last corporate career, or those simply at a loss to know where to start with sales.

Those companies that have no employed/in-house marketing or sales support function who need additional guidance on sales and marketing strategy and implementation.

Those that wish to learn more about social media for gaining SALES and not just for marketing content and branding provision.

Please note that you will need to sign up individually for all THREE events separately to get the FULL advantage of the knowledge on offer from this series.

Those who think that social media is just for marketing, when in fact it could represent a new channel of sales and customer acquisition.
