North Tyneside businesses really do buzz

It's been quite a week and one of the highlights was the North Tyneside Business Forum 'Supercharge your marketing' event. I very much enjoyed presenting to a really diverse audience of business owners and directors on the best ways to generate media coverage and answering individual questions at the end - it's hugely positive to see so many people doing the right type of informed activity to build their businesses and grasping opportunities with both hands as they come along.

I had fun and saw real benefits from participating in the 'flip chart roadshow' - if you don't know what this is, you'll have to get yourself along to the next event and experience it first hand! A clever concept, it makes connections between businesses where there is a need and there are mutual advantages to be had.

A big thank you to the forum for inviting me along and to all those who made the event a really successful one to be part of.
