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

This is the vesy first TMM Winchester event (woohooo!), and we just want to get together, say hello, have a chat, and have a nice time.

Think of this as a community event, where the focus is very much on you meeting other people in a chilled out friendly space. We’ll chat over food and drink, listen to an inspirational speaker or two, chat some more, and go home buzzing with new contacts and new ideas.

Let’s have a lovely night in the company of some amazin’ people.


Speaker: David Colgate, Head of Enterprise SEO at Vertical Leap
Topic: AI and SEO: So what?

The main takeaways will be:
- Why AI and SEO is important to you
- What you need to do about it
- How a basic competitor analysis can help

Dave has spent 14 years working in SEO and advises both challenger brands and complex, multi-site companies such as Mitchells & Butlers on how to improve their SEO. Away from his desk, you’ll find him 2,000 ft up in the air flying planes through the Sussex skies. And yes, if you’re wondering, he IS related to the founders of the toothpaste company, albeit rather distantly!


The format of the night:

6:00 pm - doors open - drinks, networking, and smiles
6:30 pm - introduction and talks begin
7:15 pm - talks finish, networking, listening, saying hello, and positively lovely people
7:45 pm - end of the night - you leave with new contacts and fresh ideas

And finally...

This is a donation ticketed event. Entry price is yours to choose, from £3 to £30 🙂

We of course understand that these are tough times, so if you are experiencing financial hardship and cannot afford the minimum donation amount, please reach out to and we’ll find a ticket for you (provided capacity hasn't already been reached!) 🙂

Please let your marketing friends and colleagues know about this group too, we 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 sign up but don’t show up, this has a knock on effect on event arrangements. If it happens 3 times, 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!
