UK Small Business News: The Pitch

The SBCN came to be partly because myself and my husband and business partner both had new small businesses, but also because we wanted to help others navigate the many different ways you can network and enjoy social media, which in turn helps create awareness for your small biz.

It is about creating Awareness and finding ways for your customers and connections to find you and discover what you do etc.

TELUS: How Innovation Can Grow Your Small Business

I was lucky enough to attend a fantastic TELUS event last week in Toronto, fabulous speakers, vendors and yummy food. More to the point until you get up close and personal you really don't know much about organizations and what they do.

Dan Silivestru Confirmed Speaker @MarketPlace Conference

We are happy to announce another confirmed speaker for the @MarketPlace Conference:


Dan Silivestru (on Twitter as @confusement) has been a technologist ever since he can remember. He started at a young age, by taking apart his toys and his grandfathers pocket watch just so that he could see how they worked. This passion for learning was funnelled into a career as a software developer and entrepreneur.
