The Chartered Institute of Marketing have announced the line-up of speakers for their Small Business Marketing Conference on 22nd May. We're excited to be exhibiting at event and speaking to SMEs about how marketing automation can help grow their businesses online.
Last year Professor Malcolm McDonald gave a highly motivating speech, so it's great to see him on the agenda again. Also of great interest will be the results of the CIM's small business survey, along with speakers on how to build a successful SME, exporting and social media. The conference takes place at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield. It's a great venue, and the food is usually pretty good too!
