Hear it straight from our customers who attended in 2012...
A great concept and although intensive, a very worthwhile use of time with some interesting speakers, meetings and workshops whilst remaining fun. Good way to network and meet other like minded people from within the industry that can help meet various business challenges, and all on a Cruise ship! Superb.
Head of Direct Marketing, O2
Superb and very beneficial. A lot of good highly relevant supplier contacts made and follow up meetings made.
Commercial & Marketing Director, David Lloyd Group
"Great opportunity to step out of the detailed pressures of running a big department with clear targets and put my head up to look forward. Articulating my challenges helped to clarify my thinking also saw some great ideas to take back and do."
Director of Supporter Marketing, The Woodland Trust
"Fantastic 2 days great use of time to see a number of potential suppliers, and find what you need as well as learn something from them and the conference sessions."
Interactive Marketing Programs Manager, Xerox UK
Full - on onslaught of ideas, people & networking opportunities. A launch pad for invigorating "The day job" and being the best leader i can be.
Marketing Communication Manager, Ericsson Ltd
Fantastic experience. Very intense which meant that a lot of work actually got done. Unlike other conferences/Marketing events the suppliers did not waste time, valued time of others. I would ideally like to have a busier speed working event the next time
Head of Online Marketing, Groupon UK
Very tiring, but great way to meet suppliers and take time away from the office to consider new ideas and ways of working. Keynote speeches were particularly inspiring.
