TIME TO GET BUSINESS MOVING AGAIN
Dorset and South Somerset have a fantastic range of businesses, so our awards focus on showcasing those businesses. Using our 30 years of experience organising business awards we have recently run the Bridport Business Awards and the Yeovil Chamber Business Awards. We are now into the second year of the Bridport awards and have recently launched the Sherborne Business Awards, the Dorchester and Poundbury Business Awards, the Lyme Regis Business Awards and the Weymouth and Portland Business Awards..
In each case, we commit to running the awards on a long-term basis, rather than a once-off.
Our lunchtime awards ceremonies are also broadcast live online to maximise the number of viewers. At the same time, the ceremonies are (subject to restrictions at the time) open for all businesses and the public to attend.
Each set of awards has its own website so to read more about each one just click on the below links.
HIGH PROFLE BUSINESS EVENTS
We run four major seminars each year, with the seminars attracting close to 100 local businesses plus a streaming audience of over 300.
Our most recent is our BUSINESS BOUNCEBACK SEMINAR featured at the top of this website.
Later this year, subject to restrictions at the time it's our annual B2B SEMINAR - RELIGHT THE FLAME. and after that, it's our SOUTHWEST ECONOMIC FORUM. Details of both will be available ASAP.
We also run seminars for individual companies. Please get in touch if we can help you.
MAKING BUSINESS CONTACTS PLUS GREAT SPEAKERS
Until the lockdown, we were running monthly networking breakfasts with high profile guest speakers. These networking breakfasts were attended by 207 business leaders, during the twelve months up to the lockdown.
During the summer lockdown, we continued running regular networking sessions, but now online attracting over 80 different businesses, while recordings of the sessions reached a further 170 local business leaders. Our range of speakers included the West Dorset MP Chris Loder, the Dorset Police Commissioner, Martyn Underhill, Tej Parikh, Chief Economist at the IOD, the entrepreneur Sir Rob McCabe, the broadcast journalist Declan Curry, the owner of Conker Gin, Rupert Holloway, the head of the South West Tourism Alliance, Alistair Handyside and the Chief Executive of Dorset Mind, Marianne Storey.
As soon as restrictions allow we will be resuming monthly networking breakfasts.
DORSETS MOST EXPEREINCED MARKETING COMPANY
We have worked with a range of clients during our careers in national and local media, through to advertising and design agencies. It's a constantly changing business and we have changed as the marketing skills needed have changed.
We work with clients large and small and we work with budgets large or small as well. From social media to a complete marketing plan, we will work with you on sections of your marketing or the whole thing.
To give you an idea of some the local businesses we have worked with over the last ten year have a look at the logos on the right.
And then get in touch to see if we can add your logo to the opposite page.
