Marcus and I have known each other for over 10 years since we connected on UK Networing site Ecademy. I am so looking forward to talking , it will be a very lively action packed informative session.
Gerry Millington UK Country Sales Manager, Beaver-Visitec International says :
‘His lecture livened up the room, shocked some of us a little with his rather direct approach, but make complete and utter sense to me – particularly when he asked if we had ever recruited the best sales person ever in the World, who bowled over everyone at interview and yet turned out to be a complete lemon. ‘

Babs Blabs about Blogs (with Steven ) 18/02/2016 at 2:00 pm
Barbara and I have known each other for over 10 years , in her role as BlogMistress she hosts websites for Angelika and me and many of our friends , She is always there to lend a helping hand when we manage to break the sites , resolving problems without fuss and showing endless patience .
We will be discussing blogs
Last time we chatted I lost sound and Babs took control as I did the interview via text (Sorry Babs) . This time round we are co-hosting , my sound is working and we are good to go .
In a nutshell: having worked my way through from office junior when I left school at 16 (computers were rare and huge then – we used manual typewriters and log tables!) to management accounting, regional management for a security firm into a great role in the food ingredients industry, then up to London and computer support for some great blue chips, and finally settling in Kent to build my own business and focus on the Internet.
Now I’ve brought together my century-spanning (ok, so that’s just a lucky timing thing, but does add up to well over 15 years) experience of the web together with commercial experience, and focus on Internet marketing strategy – both enabling others to do their own and doing it for them with the team.
The rest of the time, I run the Blogmistress which offers every kind of WordPress help you might want.
