What we're about

**Please note that our monthly events are now on hold until further notice in response to the coronavirus. We want to do our part in keeping you, and your families, healthy, so will be moving to digital-only events as soon as possible, and will hopefully be back in person before too long!**

The Marketing Meetup: Milton Keynes is a group for the brilliant marketers of Milton Keynes to come together, listen and learn.

Events run once a month and feature two expert speakers, talking about a wide variety of marketing-related subjects. All this is bookended by informal and happy networking with fellow marketing professionals.

There are three values that unite us: listening over shouting, saying hello to everyone, and being positively lovely (that's all about giving first, and treating people as people - not job titles).

We're part of the larger community known as 'The Marketing Meetup (http://www.themarketingmeetup.com)', which has positively lovely events across the UK for astonishing marketeers. Podcasts, blog posts, our closed Facebook group and all our other events can be found at themarketingmeetup.com (http://www.themarketingmeetup.com)

Anyone is welcome to come along, from all areas of business, all levels of experience and all knowledge-bases of marketing.

Ten questions with Mark Ritson About/After the Mini MBA - Mark Ritson

Does being a trained marketer make you a better marketer? Mark Ritson certainly thinks so. That’s why he founded the Mini MBA, possibly the most pervasive marketing qualification in the UK today.

I (Joe) recently completed the Mini MBA and had a great experience. In this session, we ask the good Professor Ritson ten questions that the Mini MBA raised.

Not just for those who have completed the Mini MBA, nor just for those considering it: this will be a chance to glean some marketing knowledge from the UK’s favourite marketing professor.

The where's, what's and how's of data - Thierry Ngutegure

Online event

As marketers, we love to say that data drives many of our decisions, strategies and tactical implementation.

Yet, the reality is for many marketers that we either don’t know how or where to find meaningful data. Even if we do have the raw data: bringing it to life in a way that tells stories that work both internally and externally is a challenge.

Thierry Ngutegure is really, really good at all of this.

He finds and creates data, and then uses it to tell stories that get buy-in from internal teams, or press for his clients at Rise at Seven. In this session, he’ll share:

- His research methods and sources for data gathering
- How he turns these into stories that create impact internally and externally
- Real-life examples of putting this into practice

How to turn followers into a community - Sophie Miller

Online event

Sophie Miller gets social media.

In the past 2 years, she’s grown a Facebook group of 9k+, 30k on Instagram, 61.1k on her company Linkedin page and 30k on her own personal Linkedin. More importantly - those folks are ENGAGED.

So, in a world that increasingly feels like social media provides very little bang for the buck - what does Sophie do that makes her and her company stand out so much and create a community who genuinely feel part of something?
