We're back for our second Magento Meetup in Manchester of the year!

Our next Magento Meetup event will be hosted at WeWork Spinningfields on Wednesday 5th June.

HardSoft* will be sponsoring the Summer Magento Event and headlining the event.

The speakers include:

- Hardsoft will be hosting a panel discussion around Growing Your Agency. James Lees, Marketing Director at Mabo, a specialist PPC management agency, Steven Oakes, Head of Digital Strategy at Shoot the Moon, Matt Hackett from Canny Recruitment, and Simon Wharton, Business Director at PushON, specialising in eCommerce marketing, will be taking part in the panel.

James Lees is the Marketing Director at Specialist PPC Management Agency. He has worked in digital marketing since 2004 and has worked in various roles on both agency and client side. James has been an integral part in the growth of Mabo over the last two years which saw them win the Best Small PPC Agency Award at the 2018 European Search Awards.

Steven has been involved in digital development and marketing for over 20 years. Initially starting his own agency straight out of University, specialising in websites and digital marketing products for the music industry, before returning back North to work with companies like Manchester City Football Club, BUPA healthcare, BBC, Bauer Media and Greene King. His current role at Shoot The Moon sees him managing the digital team of developers, designers and project managers to create award winning digital marketing campaigns for well-known brands like Thomas Cook, TUI, Pets At Home and Stoves.

Matt has 20 years marketing, digital and eCommerce recruitment expertise, gained within a large corporate firm, a regional independent, an investment backed start-up, and is now running his own consultancy business. As well as growing and managing his own teams, Matt has consulted with, planned and recruited for internal teams within businesses from start-ups to global PLCs, across a wide range of industries, predominantly within the north of England.
