Marketing in the Digital Age with Tim Hunt
As part of our Business for Bohemians seminar series for creative entrepreneurs, we are joined by former Marketing Director of the Guardian and now start-up founder, Tim Hunt. Tonight, we will be discussing what actually works when it comes to selling your product to the world with someone who knows what he is talking about.
This evening is hosted by Tom Hodgkinson. He will be signing copies of his new book, Business for Bohemians, the guide to business for creative people.
The event includes a lovely glass of wine upon arrival and 20% off supper at Albion afterwards.
