The Marketing Meetup: Cambridge is a positive and non-salesy group for the lovely marketers of Cambridge to come together, listen and learn.
Events run once a month and feature two expert speakers, talking stuff about marketing, or at the very least tangential to marketing. All this is bookended by the most informal and happy networking you will ever come across.
There are three values that unite us: listening over selling, saying hello to everyone, and being positively lovely (that's all about giving first, and treating people as people - not job titles). People seem to like it too - we were voted Cambridge's favourite networking event which is pretty cool.
We're part of the larger community known as 'The Marketing Meetup', which has positively lovely events across the UK for astonishing marketeers. Podcasts, blog posts, our Facebook group and all our other events can be found at themarketingmeetup.com
Anyone is welcome to come along, as you come to listen, are prepared to say hello and be positively lovely :).
The Cambridge Marketing Meetup is an informal, friendly place for the marketers of Cambridge to meet, learn, and share knowledge with one another. Come in 'listen' not 'sell' mode :)
Adelina Chalmers - The Geek Whisperer, Internal Communications: A case study
Adelina Chalmers is known as The Geek Whisperer. She acts as a middle point between people who often don't communicate well. Although Adelina spends much of her time in the tech industry, marketers famously (and ironically) aren't always the best at communicating our value either.
In this talk, Adelina will work through a case study provided by the community on how she would approach a marketer's communication challenge.
Simon Hall - Writing and Business Skills, University of Cambridge, Author, Journalist, ex-BBC, Communications Consultant
University of Cambridge Judge Business School tutor, and former BBC News Correspondent, Simon Hall will guide us through the power of simplicity in helping to get a message across.
Including perhaps the cleverest example of simplicity in business of them all, one which you use every day but probably never notice…

Please let your marketing friends and colleagues know about this group too, I hope to build it into a great resource for the community over the coming months and years. Attendance will be taken at this event. If you RSVP 'Yes' and then do not come, you will receive a strike. Three strikes and you're outta here! This is simply a measure to allow appropriate respect to the organisers, speakers, sponsors, and your fellow community members :)
