The Leeds Marketing Meetup is an informal, friendly place for the marketers of Leeds to meet, learn, and share knowledge with one another. Come in 'listen' not 'sell' mode 🙂
We will meet in the Glean offices again for this one, and we just want to get together, say hello, have a chat, and have a nice time.
The focus of the event will be very much focused on you meeting other people. We'll chat over food and drink, listen to an inspirational speaker, chat some more, and go home buzzing with new contacts and new ideas.
There is no pressure on anyone to come - we will be running events every two months from this point on so take it at a pace you're comfortable with. If you're ready... then let's have a lovely night in the company of some amazin' people.
Speaker: Jennifer Esty, Managing Director at Sharp Ahead
Topic: Decarb your digital marketing
Did you know that if the internet were a country, it would be the seventh-largest polluter in the world?
As marketers we have a role to play in defining, communicating, and celebrating sustainability goals and values. We also have a role to play in achieving them.
The good news is that there are a few simple changes you can make to reduce the environmental impact of your digital activity. And the even better news is that those same changes are likely to: improve your overall marketing results, drive better ROI, improve customer experience, and save marketing budget.
