Promoting Your Business
After nearly a year of on/off lock-downs, and the majority of businesses having to shut, it is more important than ever to get your business in front of potential customers.

We will be joined by Tim Cobb and James Dempster of Cobb PR to show us how we can promote our businesses effectively, both online and through traditional media.

Cobb PR has more than 20 years’ experience in PR and many of their team are former journalists, so they know what makes newsdesks tick, how to create a compelling story and how to deal with challenging situations.
