A very nervous Linda took to the floor to speak to the SIMS this month. I only learnt recently that Linda isn't a fan of speaking to very large groups (something we have in common!), but as I predicted she was great! Linda is a person who teaches the fundamentals of social media and draws in other marketing disciplines to teach business owners how to take control of their online profile to help their businesses grow. She empathises what we're try to teach at SIMS and we hope she'll be back soon.
There we more lovely comments which can be seen on our meetup.com page.
This month's meetup ended with some news about changes starting this Autumn. From September, we will have a slightly different format and we want to take some time to get it right.
It's been a busy year so far at SIMS. We have been lucky enough to have heard from some fabulous speakers and continued to learn helpful tips and get advice from experts who know what they're talking about. Our numbers have grown every month and the feedback we receive is always positive.
The new format aims to help even more novices and beginners learn how to work effectively online. We will cover a topic per month, with more than one speaker and include a few offline solutions. Our aim is the same, to up-skill Suffolk businesses, start-ups and pre start-ups with digital knowledge but more than that we want to help Suffolk businesses to grow, to meet experts who can help them, to learn from each other and network and generally to make Suffolk more successful!
