Brides Up North UK Wedding Blog: Karen McGowran.

.

A month ago, this took part in the Forward Ladies’ Positive Women’s Day in Sheffield, delivering a seminar to a group of business ladies from all sorts of industries about blogging – or more specifically – blogging for business.  I have to admit I was pretty damn nervous, but once I got talking, I was away – and the interactive 1.5 hour session flew by.  The feedback was fab (thank goodness!) and Forward Ladies have invited me along to host the same session at their larger York event later this month.

Might you like to come along?

In my "Blogging for Business" seminar, I shares my top tips for creating and maintaining a successful business blog in any business sector and at any level. In this interactive session, devoid of "geek speak" and specifically geared to generate results for your business, we will focus on: 

.

- Blogging for Business: Do you need a blog?
- Geek Chic:  The technical side made easy.  
- Writers Block: Getting started.
- The C’s of Success: content, comments, contacts and consistency. 
- Getting to the Top: Your blog and your website’s Google search ranking. 
- Sell Yourself: Showing what you can do
- Social Marketplace: Using Twitter, Facebook and other Social Media to your advantage

Positive Womens Day – Tuesday 29th November 2011

York – 8.45 am – 3.00pm

.

The current economic climate is putting tremendous pressure on small businesses and we want to support professional women and help them to gain new skills to make them more competitive in the business market.  Feedback from previous events has reinforced the need for affordable training and development – from just £24 for the whole day.

.

There will a choice of workshops covering topics such as:

.

  • Social media and blogging for business
  • Marketing & Branding
  • Confidence building
  • Personal presentations

.

A full list of workshops and a timetable for the day is available on the Forward Ladies website.

    This sounds great Julia – and motivational. If I can keep the date free I’ll be there. I’ll pass this on to some friends who may find it useful too.

    This sounds just what I need, unfortunately I am not in England when it’s on!! Perhaps an online version, maybe they have a website and would ask you to write a guide? Just a thought! Love your blog by the way – Anne-Marie x
