DIVE INTO THE SCHEDULE
In the prehistoric days, ads on facebook no matter how bad they were could translate to sales so long as they were technically correct, but that's not the case anymore. In this session we'll dive deep into the technical requirements to running effective ads, and dressing your message in a way that will turn heads!
When kicking off the fundraising process, a well-structured pitch deck does a lot of the heavy lifting to attract investor attention. Knowing what to highlight and what to leave on the cutting room floor can make all the difference. In this session, Lauren Capelin will share how to craft a solid pitch, give insight into what investors are looking for and raise some of the more common red flags.
It's not secret that our current working conditions look different to that of a few years ago. So how has your leadership style adjusted to this change? Join Jamie Pride, CEO at Humanly Agile, to discover how to harness the power of your people through better ways of working.
Join Global Brand Strategist Nicole Hatherly, as she guides you through the process of positioning your brand value for maximum impact. Over the course of the afternoon, you'll learn how to build a meaningful brand and powerful profile that connects, influences and inspires.
