The Birmingham Marketing Meetup is an informal, friendly place for the marketers of Birmingham to meet, learn, and share knowledge with one another. Come in 'listen' not 'sell' mode 🙂

It will be great to get together, say hello, have a chat, and have a nice time.

The focus of the event will be very much focused on that - you meeting other people. For those of you who attended pre-Covid there will be some small changes to help us all achieve that; we'll still have a talk - but this will be the single talk of the night rather than the two talks of old.

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 1: Jodanna Bird, Senior Creative, Gymshark

Join us to hear Jo speak about what she learned at Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2022, and how you can apply that to your creative

Speaker 2: Chris Williams, Linkedin Specialist

Chris's talk feels like it will be an important one. It is titled "Be Kind and Be You - Presenting yourself on LinkedIn and to the wider digital world"

The format of the night:

6.00 PM - Doors Open - Drinks, Networking, and smiles
6.30 PM - Introduction and Talks Begin
7.00 PM - Talks Finish, Networking, Listening, Saying Hello, and Positively Lovely People - A nice chilled out time 🙂
7.45 PM - End of the night - you leave with new contacts and fresh ideas

In partnership with Pitch Consultants. Matching companies with their perfect person and candidates with their dream job.

And finally...

Please let your marketing friends and colleagues know about this group too, I hope to build it into a great resource for the community over the coming months and years. Attendance will be taken at this event. If you RSVP 'Yes' and then do not come, you will receive a strike. Three strikes and you're outta here! This is simply a measure to allow appropriate respect to the organisers, speakers, sponsors, and your fellow community members 🙂
See you there!
