For anyone who doesn’t know, The Marketing Geeks are HUGE believers in face to face networking, so we get out and about and try to meet as many people as possible during the working week.
Lots of the events are free or cost the same as a cup of coffee or tea, and the connections you can make can be invaluable!
So, if you would like to come along to any and either meet us there or arrange a one-2-one before or after the events we’d love to meet you!
Below are the events we will be attending this November (and their links to the tickets if you need to book!)

Intellectual Property Zone
Another subject that people shy away from but is incredibly important to know where you stand with.
