Details

Speakers

Here are the speakers for this event:

Sharon Flaherty, BrandContent (http://brandcontent.co.uk/) (@ContentPRlover (https://twitter.com/ContentPRlover))
Google Home is here, but what does it mean for your SEO strategy?
Google Home is now available to buy in the UK and as digital marketers, we need to consider what impact Google Home will have on search. How does Google Home decide on which answers to give? What does it mean for SEO strategies and current approaches? In this talk, we'll showcase the new Google Home device and draw some conclusions.

Joe Tannorella, Admiral Group plc (https://admiralgroup.co.uk/) & UIDB.io (https://uidb.io/) (@JoeTannorella (https://twitter.com/JoeTannorella))
Outreaching to Richard Branson
In 2014 Joe successfully outreached to Richard Branson using the mini-site dearsirrichard.com (http://www.dearsirrichard.com/). In this talk Joe runs us through how he did it, the effort he went through, why it worked, and gives us a few lessons learned in how to outreach.

Live Site Review

Following on from previous site reviews (Learnium, Xanthe Studios and Letterbox Lab), we will be analysing and auditing a volunteered website live on the night! We have our willing volunteer lined up - a few days beforehand we'll announce who it is so that you can research them beforehand if you like. Should be good!

Food & Drink!

Like last time, we're arranging for a caterer to provide food for the event and they've asked us to let them know if anyone has any gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan or any other dietary requirements. Please message us via the Meetup group if that applies to you and we'll let them know - please do so no later than Mon 15th (3 days before the event). There'll be some vegetarian options available anyway, so only let us know if you're vegan specifically. It's a finger food buffet, so you may want to grab a meal before you arrive anyway - just a heads-up.

Beer, wine and soft drinks will also be available.

A big thank you to our food & drink sponsors:
