Speaking at NorthEastExpo 2010

important of web analytics

Wow, this is a special landmark post, not only is this my 50th blog post but this post marks some rather exiciting news at Smartdog HQ.

I’m delighted to announce that I’m speaking at the upcoming NorthEastExpo event which is taking place at Newcastle Racecourse, High Gosforth Park, Newcastle upon Tyne. The event is FREE to attend and I recommend any business who operates in the North east should come down to do some networking, attend some of the masterclasses and yes most importantly come listen to me speak about how social media can help your business.

The event is run by Network North, who are a networking company that provide networking events in the north east of England. I’d personally like to thank the team at Network North for inviting me to speak at their event.

The conference features some great speakers and will be hosted and presented by renowned former BBC presenter Tony Baker. Tony’s track record includes over 12,000 TV and Radio programme contributions and he has the distinction of having interviewed every serving Prime Minister since 1979.

When am I speaking?
