One Man Bands Don’t Work – by Tim Johnson

The first time Tim spoke publicly about this subject it was to a room of 100 hundred one man bands – and he still lives to tell the tale!

In this engaging and inspiring presentation Tim explains:-

Why one man bands don’t work

The common market solutions to these issues

The main reasons these solutions don’t work

And, what can be done to redress the problem.

Tim Johnson, having built one multi-million pound business lost it all and his arm in a serious car accident.  He started all over again as a one man band, and landed out co-founding a business breakfast network for one man bands, called 4Networking.  Through his experiences Tim has a unique insight into the challenges facing micro-businesses and sound practical advice on how to overcome them.

Gary Johannes is a hypnotherapist and mentor to many small business owners and he runs a successful business of his own, but it has not always been that way.  Having run numerous businesses, some successful and some not, and having worked with literally hundreds of businesses, Gary is familiar with the common challenges.  He says “If you are not achieving the things you want in your business, the chances are you have beliefs that are in conflict with them”.  In this talk, Gary will show us how we can banish negative thinking and overcome limiting beliefs by applying 4 simple and effective principles, allowing you to make 2014 your best year yet!

GOOGLE + MASTERCLASS (PART 1 OF 4) GETTING STARTED!

17 Feb 2014, 6:00 PM — 7:30 PM

Eco Innovation Centre, Peterscourt, City Road, PE1 1SA, Peterborough

Due to popular demand and requests we are holding a repeat of our excellent “Google+ how to get started masterclass” for those Peterborough Does Business Members whom missed our original workshop. This is the 1st workshop of 4 which will enable you to maximise Google + not only to increase your social media presence but to comprehensively improve your websites visibility and Search Engine ranking . To receive this workshop for FREE you must be a Peterborough Does Business Member (it’s FREE!) Simply sign-up for our newsletter to receive membership!

Google+ is coming. . . . . a strange statement regarding a Social Media network which has been around for more than 2 years, but Google are in the midst of a master plan to make Google+ the social network of choice and necessity in the coming years and businesses need to be prepared to embrace it and use it to get ahead online.
In our Initial Google+ Surgery we will be covering the absolute basics:
• Getting Started with Google Plus
• Why Google+ is necessary for all startups and SME’s
• How to use Circles
I’m already on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn – Why do I need to be on Google+ ?
Increasingly Google are supporting Google+ by linking to the network from all of it’s existing platforms and migrating users from existing properties – for example, YouTube users will have noticed how they have changed the comments on YouTube (the world’s second largest search engine) to be powered by Google+ comments, much the same as they did with Google Places. Together with the new Hummingbird algorithm which confirmed the increasingly significant Google+ role in a solid SEO ranking. Those +1′s add up and now directly affect the ranking of your business website and visibility. This has left many experts suggesting that traditional SEO is dying and Google+ is moving to position itself not only as the “king” of the search engines & SEO but, by clever integration, “king” of the Business class social media networks.
The Google+ Masterclasses are delivered through Peterborough Does Business by our partner

In the KEYNOTE SLOT  Kim Morrison  
"The WWWWH of Marketing and Social Media"
The key goal for most professional service businesses is to have a continual and consistent flow of clients and a pipeline full of prospects. The reality though tends to be very different; they market when they need clients and then, because they are overwhelmed with work, they stop marketing and wait. A few months later, when they have nothing else coming through, they start all over again. 
A complete marketing system is key to attracting new clients for your business. Social media does work but it also concentrates your efforts on just one marketing tool and can take your focus and energy away from what could be more effective methods of marketing your business.

Kim will be answering the following questions (and any others you might want to ask!):
• Why bother?
• What should you do?
• Where's do you start?
• Which methods will work?
• How should you appear?
• Mistakes to Avoid

*Refundable Ticket: The tickets are issued on a first come, first served basis. If you want to book but there are no more tickets, join our waiting list and you’ll be the first to know if someone cancels or the date of the next event! We do not charge for this workshop programme. However, since we have only 16 spaces at each event, we want to make sure that the people who book do turn up and do not take up a space that they will not use. Therefore, we will charge a nominal price/ticket, and if you attend all workshops, we will refund you in full.

 

The training is FREE as long as you:

  • are a Cleantech/low carbon economy business
  • are an eligible, registered SME (self-employed, limited company, registered partnership) within the six counties in the East of England (Hertfordshire, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Suffolk and Norfolk)
  • attend all three workshops and stay for the full duration of the sessions.

This programme is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
