Come along to our July Muswell Hill Meeting (the last before our summer break), for some fabulous local business networking plus a great talk at 2pm - When Text Doesn't Speak - with Marcia MacLeod.
While we all may use text-speak when communicating with friends, it has no place in business writing. But what does? How can you write snappy, interesting web copy, leaflets, brochures and other marketing material without sounding unprofessional? And does one writing style suit all?
Marcia MacLeod, journalist and copywriter, will outline the differences between different types of business writing and explain how to structure your writing style to capture the key features of each.
We run a local friendly networking group for small businesses in and around North London and have been running our business networking meetings since 2007.
We currently have no joining fee, though we will be moving over to a paid membership system on 20 June 2011, after which time you can attend two meetings, after which you will need to become a member to continue attending.
From the beginning of May until 20 June, we will be introducing our new membership system with some fantastic discounts - visit our website at www.smallbusinessnetwork.biz for more info as this is a really great time to join us.
We meet twice a month - in Muswell Hill and West Hampstead. The meetings last two hours and in the last 30 minutes we have either a free business talk or a themed discussion.
This is a place to meet like minded self employed and small business owners, grow your business, display your products, get referrals, learn from others, make friends, exchange services, and learn from our experts on the different aspects of running your own small business. Everyone is welcome, from long term small business owners to start ups, part timers and freelancers.
Muswell Hill meetings are on the 3rd Monday of the month followed by our free 30 minute talk at 2pm. Arrive from 12.30pm at Sable D'Or, 249 Muswell Hill Broadway, N10 1DE.
West Hampstead meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month at Love Food, 202 West End Lane, NW6 1SG, 12.30-2.30pm.
Our website - www.smallbusinessnetwork.biz gives more details of the meetings, plus lots of useful articles and tips on running your own business. And you can sign up to our twice monthly newsletter to keep yourself informed of meetings and other events.
