This is a little late…

Ok – so I have broken every rule that I teach clients – be consistent, be persistent, don’t go quiet…..well here we are on the 3rd of February and it’s my first post of 2016!!


To be honest, I have been plotting, planning, training, building and faffing….all the things that we all do in the New Year. We are all shocked that it’s February and say things like “it can’t be nearly Valentine’s Day!”…well at least I do…

So, what’s planned for 2016 then? We are super excited to be giving the website a refresh…some adjustments in navigation, some improvements in social sharing and a better search system for our ever popular courses page!

Also on the menu for 2016 is the development of the training arm of Simply HQ – The Simply Business School. Currently I run half day workshops covering specific titles like “Twitter for Business” & “Pinterest for Business” as well as a few full day courses in marketing and strategy. What I would like to do is develop these to ensure folks are getting the support that they need…are you seeing the training that you want? Are there enough dates in the dairy for you? Is the price about right? These are all questions I am assessing…something I recommend to all my clients – Review | Tweak | Repeat.

I have also launched our new hashtag to help peeps engage with and discover Staffordshire in 2016. Across all our platforms we are promoting #DiscoverStaffs16…please share, use and join in.

Finally I am working on some events for 2016. Firstly, and with both my Simply Staffordshire and Staffordshire Hour hats on, I am supporting the first ever Staffordshire Day (May the 1st 2016) – a celebration of a 1000 years of our fine county. Not only am I supporting member businesses and local enterprises but also working with some big names to bring an amazing Bank Holiday to you and the world.
