The first North Dorset Business Expo in Shaftesbury went off with a bang last week. We were really proud to have been part of the event, organised by Daniel House Accounting. The event started at 10am and comprised of local businesses showing off their products and services mixed in with a few talks from experts in their fields. This inlcuded a half hour presentation from James of Chain Digital who talked about ways to promote yourself online, including Social Media, Search engine Optimisation and Paid advertising. The other talks included sponsors Xero and Ellis Jones Solicitors.
Rupert and Jim from Chain Digital welcomed many new and old faces to our stand on the day. We beleive this area is a hot bed of entrepeneurialism and as such deserves its place in the business world so it was nice to see so much support for a first try at the event. We look forward to participating in many more of these to come.
Special congratulations to Lucy Kitcher of Natwest bank who won our business card prize draw. She won a delicious bottle of bubbly. If you are interested in exhibiting or attending another similar event then please get in touch and we can point you in the right direction. A special thanks of course to Debbie from Passionate PA who did the leg work to get everyone there.
