On March 25th 2013 I gave a talk at Interesting Talks about marketing, PR and business mindset. The feedback was amazing and I have had many emails asking me to repeat the event.
Instead of simply repeating the event, I am going to do a 4 hour workshop. This will include all the content I covered in the first talk, plus there will be exercises and much more interaction. The aim of this workshop is for people to leave with a marketing plan that they can implement straight away.
I will be adding more information about this workshop in the near future. It is going to be very limited spaces. 30 early bird tickets are available at just £25. This is the workshop I wish existed when I first started in business. I will show you clear and simple strategies that work in most business types. Regardless of if you are just starting, or have been in business for a number of years, I guarantee that you will be able to take some new ways of marketing your products and services in a straightforward no nonsense way!
Below are some comments left by people who attended the previous talk;
“An amazing talk by Matt. Valuable advice and information that I know will be valuable when I start my business. Thank you Matt!”
“Enjoyed the talk and thought that Matt's common sense no nonsense approach was very helpful. Some very useful tips which I will employ going forward. Thanks Matt. Can't wait to see what you cook up for your next birthday ;-)”
“I took one piece of Matts advice and started up a database of old client enquiries -some had turned into jobs and others hadnt. I sent out a quick email to 50 clients just to see what happened and got a booking straight away! So thanks again Matt - your ideas certainly work”
“Awesome talk! So much useful practical info and tips to implement. Thanks Matt!”
“My first talk and I loved it: interesting, packed with information, and hosted well. A great atmosphere at the event too - nice people.”
“Thanks for the talk - I liked the basic concept work smart and offer what people want - a good lesson for us all”
“This was the first talk I attended and it was great how Matt shared his experience and advice in a simple, logical way. I appreciate the online tools and information sources shared to hel peven further. Who knows - I might just get out of this 9 to 5 job soon, once I have taken Matts advice on board. Working on curing my phobia of uncertainty first...”
“This talk was the best I have been to, It was really useful with practical advise, Humour, and a fantastic Vibe.
I also enjoyed learning more about Matt and how he got to where he is, Looking forward to coming to more! Very very good!.”
“Fantastic talk. I took home about 5 pages worth of really practical and implementable tips which I have already started putting into practice so it was a two hours very well spent. The talk was very engaging with superb content and your humor didn't fail to pay us a visit either! Thank you”
“This meetup/talk was simply brilliant. So much amazing advice to take away from Matt's year's of experience in developing businesses and following his passions. Simply magnificent. Well done Matt!”
“This talk was truly an amazing talk! Matt needs to repeat it for all who missed it!”
“That was a great talk. I think Matt managed to summarise his methodology for his businesses evolving into interesting talks as a great template for how other speakers should do interesting talks, so in a sense ... proving his methods even more.”
“Matt gave many practical tips that are tried and true. If we listen and learn from him, we don't have to reinvent the wheel!;-) His systems and methodologies help to accelerate the growth of his businesses!! Thank you Matt for sharing your wisdom and experience with us!! Excellent presentation filled with useful content we can apply to any business start up! Appreciate the humor as well!:-)”
“It was a very informative event where Matt shared his past experiences with his audience. Matt is a success story as he goes against the norm of running a business. Virtually every business minded 'expert' out there will tell you to write a business plan and forecast... Matt's not into that. He claims he's never written one, and I believe him. He's just 'got it' and that speaks volumes. It just shows that if you have passion, determination and a working ethic, then you can do whatever you want to do. Well done Matt on giving such an insightful talk.”
“Matt's talk was engaging, inspiring, instructive and just really useful. A really worthwhile event and I am so glad I went. It was also great chatting with the interesting people who attended the talk, down the pub afterwards. What a fab group. Thanks Matt. And we had comfy chairs. Yay. :-)”
“Matt was as brilliant as we all knew he would be: funny, entertaining, insightful and straightforward. If you want to know how to get things done, this was the talk for you.”
“Good talk, with lost of useful info, thanks”
“Cheers, Matt! you shared valuable strategies for a hands on approach that goes beyond motivational talk.”
“Great talk Matt. Informative, witty, and easy to digest. Thanks”
“Thanks Matt, great talk. Interesting, funny and packed with useful and proven information. You gave us a model that any of us could use, even though for many of us, me included, it would take us way out of our comfort zone. If anyone is really serious about running their own business, this is a great place to start from.”
“A fantastic evening! Lots of useful information and ideas to take forward.
Many Thanks Matt.”
“Thank you very much, Matt for your talk. Great reminder that systems, consistency and "just getting on with it" bring great rewards. Funny and informative with a few jokes as well. Really glad you shared your strategies for success with us. Look forward to 1 day workshop! Trish x”
“Best talk I have been to so far. Cheers Matt”
“Very useful - what to do (and what to avoid). How to do business and make money with humanistic values and putting people first. Money and new opportunities will follow.
“First Interesting Talk and excelled all expectations! Lots of great content and strategies! Will be att
ending again soon :-)”
“Thank you! Information I will be putting to use.”
“Excellent! Thank you.”
“Lots of useful info, very concise and well structured. Flip chart wasn't easily visible from the back so for speakers using bullet points to signpost/ structure their talks, I would find it useful to be able to see these....but then I'm a 'visual listener'!! :)”
“Totally enjoyed the talk. It's all common sense that you thought about but in a very structured form.”
