Who wants the ultimate quick win in marketing? Everyone, I bet. Imagine this though; Lewis Hamilton wasn’t born in a car, he had to learn how to drive. As with marketing, you’ve got to learn how to do it FOR YOUR BUSINESS! Here it is, the answer you’re all waiting for. Marketing, or the art of creating brand awareness, is determined by the value you give away up front, for free.

Websites, books, brochures, flyers, advice, speaking, podcasts, ads, pdf downloads etc …there it is, the answer 👆👆👆

Ok. Obvious. Now the difficult bit.

You must find 2 or 3 things/activities which work for your business. This is YOUR marketing mix. It is unique to YOU and YOU’VE got to “learn” it. Robin will debunk all of the common marketing myths and show you all how to market your business moving forward, avoiding the common pitfalls and negative backlash along the way. This Marketing Mystery will be solved.

celia alves

Founder of Solve & Excel

Consulting

keynote

This session will present a real business case, guiding the audience through the challenges of developing a business system with Excel, from the client’s request to the final product. The session will include • demonstrating how we can combine the multiple tools available in Excel to build a business application tailored to the specific needs of a company (generate professional-looking pay statements for his staff and get accurate and insightful reports about his business financials); • walking the audience through the challenges of implementing what it seemed to be a simple request at first and presenting the solution found for the main problems (key factors involve importing data with Power Query, creating a Data Model with Power Pivot and DAX and automating procedures with VBA.) One of Excel’s strengths is its flexibility to allow the development of custom solutions. Dealing with real-life challenges offers the developers an opportunity to expand knowledge and skills and the business owners a chance to deepen their understanding of their business.

liam bastick

Founder of SumProduct,

FCA, FCMA, CGMA, MVP

keynote

So this item is disrupting the original agenda, so why not focus on Excel’s new disruptors? This session takes an age-old Excel problem for making lists more manageable by combining the new (dynamic arrays, new functions and operators), with the old (data validation, custom number formatting, conditional formatting), the ugly (deliberately creating errors, and using non-auditable functions like INDIRECT) and the under-used (Tables, text functions and TRANSPOSE). Whether the example strikes a chord is not the issue; the emphasis is showing how many different areas may be brought together to work collaboratively. Bring your best speed reading glasses, a healthy sense of humour and a seat belt, because you are going to have to strap in for the ride.
