Moray Summit aims to banish boredom and ‘death by powerpoint’

‘Boring speakers’ and ‘death by Powerpoint’ will be banished for Moray businesses attending one of the key summit’s being held during Moray Business Week this month.

That is the promise being made by organisers of the Grow your Business Seminar which will be aimed at small and medium-sized businesses who are seeking to maximise their growth potential into the new year.

This event will also provide an opportunity for those attending to network with other like-minded businesses and hear some of the solutions that have helped others achieve success.

At the seminar Mervyn Stanley from Cameron Carnegie will outline the challenges and solutions in developing growth and building sustainable sales.

For those who fell they are held back by staffing issues or unsure of the recent exchanges in Employment legislation, Laura McIntosh from Empire HR will steer her audience through the pitfalls.

Moray Chamber of Commerce are behind the seminar, for whom a spokeswoman said: “Social media is playing an increasing role in helping businesses engage with targeted and potential customers.

“Rene Looper from Tuminds will discuss the options and opportunities using Twitter, Linkedin and Pinterest. While experienced broadcaster and writer Nicky Marr can guide you through the dos and don’ts of protecting your brand and reputation if the worst was to happen.”

Securing the necessary finance to fund that much needed expansion will be headlined by Allan Chalmers from Chalmers Commercial Finance, while the flexibility and benefits Cloud Accounting can provide will be discussed by Lynn Smith from JetStream Accountancy.

Finally Colin Sandilands of Stronachs will outline some of the key challenges there are in acquiring another business.

Places at the summit on November 14 from 10am until 1pm at the Laichmoray Hotel in Elgin are free of charge but must be booked in advance via the online booking form.
