Master Classes

January - April 2017

The Business Hive are proud to launch a brand new series of Business Master Classes from January 2017 

These Master Classes will be delivered by accomplished business speakers, who are professionals in their field. Over the year we will cover a broad range of subjects important to business in 2017, giving you new skills and essential knowledge that you can take back to your business.

The speakers will be delivering new information on subjects most relevant to today’s businesses, bringing up to date insights into subjects such as Digital Marketing, Communication, Intellectual property and many more. One thing they all have in common is that you will walk away with something new.

The Master Classes are exclusive to Business Hive Members, and although we will be holding them at various locations around North East Lincolnshire, places are limited, so be sure to reserve your seat as soon as you can.  For business growth and personal development these Master Classes are not to be missed.

It is not business as usual. We are living through a communication revolution which is changing much of the established wisdom in so many areas of commerce. Today, how do companies:
• market themselves effectively in a digital world with a multitude of channels?
• create differentiation in an environment with so many providers and customer choice?
• break through the noise in the market place in order to engage with prospects and win business?
In this talk Grant Leboff will make sense of many of the changes that are affecting businesses today and reveal the actions attendees need to take in order to ensure their marketing delivers results.

Does your business really understand how social media works? Not how to tweet, set up a Facebook page or create a Pinterest board, your children can show you those basics. This is about how the people using social media - your customers - can shape how your business is viewed on and offline. Find out the importance of paid, earned and owned media, how social media platforms organise and prioritise information and why campaign-led marketing is crucial to social media success. Alex Wright spent three and a half years on the Facebook Global Sales and Marketing team, working with big brands and SME alike. Get insight from someone who has seen the inner workings of the world’s best-known social media channel.
