PR is all about creating opportunities. So what better way than to spend a morning “opening doors” within the beautiful and historic surroundings of the Guildford Guildhall. This is precisely what we at CBC did on Wednesday this week, when we acted as Experts on PR and Marketing at a business networking event hosted by Enterprise First, and backed by Guildford Borough Council and Barlow Robbins Solicitors. The Guildhall, a beautiful wood paneled building of Tudor origin, used to be a courtroom and council chamber, so what better venue for an event to help boost local businesses, with a number of companies offering advice ranging from taxation to creating your own web site. As Experts, we were not only able to offer free advice to a wide range of new business startups, but also to create our own business lead opportunities for the future. And what an interesting selection of entrepreneurs we met: from dog grooming and canine behaviour advisors, to bespoke ceramic furniture, and adventure holiday specialists. Some people have such interesting lives! Looking forward to the next networking event!
