The Marketing Meetup

The Marketing Meetup was set up with the duel mission of providing somewhere lovely to network, and a great place to learn about relevant marketing topics. 

The latter is easier to address. The Marketing Meetup provides marketers with a place to learn from expert speakers. Talks are pitched at a Marketing Manager/Solo Marketer in a medium company/Freelancer level – meaning to say we tend to take things to an ‘intermediate’ level in the events, while the workshops are for more advanced stuff. 

On the providing somewhere lovely to network front, we have just tried to create the events we would like to attend. The three values that hold our events together are: 

– Listening. Ever get that nagging feeling someone is trying to sell to you, or simply thinking about the next clever thing they are going to say while you’re talking at a networking event? Yep. Us too. We thought it was annoying so we actively encourage everyone who walks through the doors of the Meetup to build a genuine human relationship with their fellow community members first, before thinking of business later.

– Saying hello. Networking events are reeeeeeally intimidating for a lot of people. So we’ve tried to create an environment where saying hello to a new person or someone stood by themselves is totally normal and seen as a good thing. Hello really is the hardest word in networking.

– Being positively lovely. A lot of this should be obvious, but The Marketing Meetup is a place where we encourage you to put the needs of the people in front of you first. Although slightly counterintuitive, we’ve found people end up getting a lot more in return when looking to help others first. 

As well as these things, we also believe where possible we should be eco-conscious, try to get a 50/50 male/female in our speakers, and be welcoming to anyone who wishes to enter our community. We are ultimately a community of ideas, not job titles.

Sorry, there are no upcoming events
