My next series of networking events: Digital Powerups

My next series of networking events: Digital Powerups

Last week I announced plans to put on a new series of networking events in Reigate. These events will aim to showcase the many online apps and tools small businesses can use to become more efficient, productive and profitable. Each month a different speaker will demo an app they have been using. We'll hear about their experience using the app and get to ask any questions we may have. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for further discussion and some light networking.

Over the last week, I have been talking to people about the types of apps they would find interesting. Below is a list of the apps suggested so far:

  • Hubspot
  • Canva
  • Xero
  • Hootsuite
  • Buzzsumo
  • Trello
  • Todoist
  • WordPress
  • OneNote / Evernote
  • MailChimp
  • Toggl / Harvest (time tracking apps)
  • Facebook Ads Manager
  • Zapier
  • Join.me

There was a general interest in CRM systems, social media tools, as well as anything productivity related. If there is another app you think might be worth adding to this list, just let me know.

The next step is to find people who would be interested in doing demonstrations. If you love any of the above apps, or indeed a different app, I would like to hear from you.

Lastly, I'm also looking for potential event sponsors. The costs of running each event should be limited to the price of a hall and some promotion. Even if we did have to charge for tickets, they would be very cheap, but it would be nice to make the events free to attend.

Due to being in a hall, spaces will be limited. If you want me to let you know when details of the first event become available, the best bet is to join my events mailing list: http://eepurl.com/dxl_GP
