As the organisers of this wonderful network of ours we are, as you might imagine, very keen that everyone makes the most of their membership. We have been planning this event for some time now and we’re delighted to have brought together some of our members and in-house experts to help you take advantage of all that PBN has to offer.
If you made it along to the May lunch you will have heard from Rachel Weiss on how to work the room. (If you didn’t make it, you missed a great lunch event!). Physical networking is a significant part of your membership but for those of you who can’t make the meetings a regular part of your schedule we’d like to offer other great ways to make those £70 fees work as hard they can!
This event will aim to help you:
- Find out more about your FREE ASB Membership that comes as a perk of your PBN membership.
- Use our social media to boost your own social media, web traffic and business news.
- Have your news, events and expertise highlighted on our PBN website and shared with members.
- Make that directory listing really, really, really great with a fabulous new head and shoulders shot
Here to make this all possible is:
Julie Hall from Hall Mark Consultancy will chat about your FREE membership within the Association of Scottish Businesswomen.
Julie is a Past President of the Association of Scottish Businesswomen and currently Chair of the ASB Affiliate Group.
Julie tells us, “When I started my business 15 years ago, little did I know the support I would get from the Women’s business networks or the journey it would take me on?
I started my advertising sales company in 1999 growing rapidly in the early years. Changes in the advertising arena and my personal life in 2005 meant major changes. I now offer business support including marketing and events. With a balance between paid and voluntary work I have had opportunities taking me in unexpected directions.
I am looking forward to coming to a PBN event, sharing my experiences, what I have learnt on the way, hearing about your businesses and talking about how your local club and the ASB can support you.”
