Yes – we do love marketing here! In July we will be working with two other teams to deliver a new event, a not for profit conference in Exeter focusing on sharing our skills and experience with people in the region: Love Marketing.
Doing what you love is important (see previous blog). I will also be the first to admit that I am not good at everything. So working with others is a fantastically satisfying way of making the sum of the parts greater than the whole! Sharing your skills with others is also massively empowering. These are both reasons why I am looking forward to Love Marketing and continuing our work with Drive Studio and ADPR. hope to see you there. More info below:
