Coffee and Connect Marketing in the boardroom

Join our Leicestershire and South East Midlands team for the first session of the year!

An opportunity for business leaders to chat to one another regarding issues that are currently affecting their businesses, or simply to meet some new faces and make new connections.

Looking to network with business leaders in your local area?

Hosted by Mark Smith, Founder of The Brand Strategy and Marketing & PR ambassador for Leicestershire and South East Midlands, this event is part of a free series enabling members to connect and discuss topics of interest.

This session will focus on the role of marketing in the boardroom, for example whether it is a strategic input to decision making or the route to market for activating decisions made. 

The Chartered Institute of Marketing define marketing as a “management process” - what does this really mean for directors in a wider business context?

Once registered, a joining link will be sent closer to the date. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
