    Time - 10.00 am for a 10.30 start

    Presenter - Wayne Avanson, The Action House

    Topic - How to create video for your business,(Relax, itâs easy!)

    If you have never done it before, it can be daunting to know how to start or where to go if you have an idea that you want to produce videos to promote your business.

    But relax, it is easy. You can even do it yourself without much outlay or experience.

    In this workshop I will show you how to work with a professional company to keep things simple, keep prices down, get your specific business messages out into the wider world, and directed at the right people.

    I will also show you how you can get set up for yourself using a camera you may already have, or a smart phone and a cheap clip on microphone, a pad and pencil a window and a chair. And how with these things you can STILL get great results that look and sound professional, that allow you the freedom to produce quick VLOGs, testimonial videos, and so on.

    I can help with the scripting of your message, some tips and tricks for what to include and what to leave out, the kind of language you should be using, how long your piece should be, and your approach to being in front of the camera.

    I can also show you how to build from that to slightly more ambitious pieces, by practising simple techniques, perhaps using better more dedicated gear, adding some lights, finding what works for you and making the most of it.

    You will get the impetus to get started by understanding what the benefits are for your business, how to fine tune your messages well as technical stuff like how long a piece should be.

    I will show you how to do simple editing on your laptop, or even your phone! Then the quickest way to upload to YouTube to get your message out there more or less immediately.

    Following a few simple routines gets the technical stuff sorted, and considering a few sensible artistic choices will make sure you can get up and running with the least amount of hassle and the most amount of good, clean, professional looking videos. Those videos can be working for you 24/7 and as you increase your online digital footprint, you can take on more ambitious pieces when youâre ready to really take advantage of the power of online video for your business.

  • June: Thursday 22nd, The Mere Golf Resort and Hotel

    Time - 10.00 am Registration and Refreshments for a 10.30 am Start

    Presenter - Stephen Cobham - Managing Director - Stack Group

    Topic - Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

    Information and data is at the heart of most businesses, with customer records, invoices, emails, bank details and much more, being critical to success. If this information was lost - be it through human error, Ransomware, flood, fire or terrorist attack - could you continue to trade and how long would it take your business to get back on track? Also, with the GDPR regulation coming in to force in May 2018, businesses need to ensure that their data is adequately protected, because in the event of a breach, a large fine will be issued.

    Around 80% of small and mid-sized businesses that experience a disaster with no effective plan fold within 18 months - which is a very sobering thought.

    During this seminar, Steve will be discussing the importance of having a business continuity plan and will explain how cloud technologies make it possible for small and mid-market organisations to establish a reliable and affordable business continuity solution to enable them to recover from disaster within minutes

    The presentation on Business Continuity Planning will cover:

    - What are the risks to your business?
    - What is a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)
    - What are the benefits of having a BCP and DRP?
    - The four steps to developing a BCP

    A highly respected professional within the IT services industry, Steve is a Chartered Engineer with over 20 years' experience of advising on and building robust IT solutions for businesses across the UK.

    Presenter - Chris Moran, JCM Business Solutions

    Topic - Why Hope Has No Place In Sales

    Content:

    Things were going fine in the sale at the start, but now somethings not right. The prospect hasn't rung back for 3 days, and then suddenly comes up with a new requirement or condition that you can't meet. And now someone else is in the decision process. The presentation wasn't brilliant, you were off target with the topics you addressed and no one seems to be driving the project forward.

    In reality you have no control over the deal and no way to influence the outcome. You sit there and find yourself being optimistic."I've sent in a summary and I'm hoping Jim will ring me back this week"

    What happened to critical thinking? Selling is a profession, an acquired skill. Yet many salespeople fail to plan, research or set personal objectives. They fail to keep developing their skills and looking at ways to improve.

    As a result, Sales people are often busy fools, with forecasts that are full of deadwood rather than actual closable deals.

    Yet there are successful sales people who seem to be less busy than the rest of us! How do they do that?
    There are a number of excellent sales approaches that have been developed over the last couple of decades and in this session, Chris Moran will take us through some some that help remove hope from selling.
