The Chartered Institute of Marketing: ‘Event marketing essential communication tools’.

CIM: Event marketing essential communication tools

September 06, 2018

6:00 PM – Poole

Sara St George, Head of Sales and Marketing/Dep CEO, runs the Poole Lighthouse marketing operation. She will explain how they market using all communicational tools as a local venue with a national reach. Sara will also indulge into how the team and its processes have developed over the years to support an increase in audiences.

Behind the scenes, it’s not as straightforward as you may think! Lighthouse is the largest regional arts centre in the UK and it plays a vital role in Poole and the South West as a nationally important cultural building where creative work is made, rehearsed, discussed, shared and presented. It is also a place where our community presents their work and where entire schools can showcase their talent in a professional performance environment – an experience never to be forgotten in anyone’s lifetime.

Registration and networking is from 18:00; the event starts at 18:30 and finishes at 19:30.

BU Seminar: ‘Migration, Economic Impact and Integration Policy’

Wednesday 18 July 2018

9.30am – 1pm

BU Executive Business Centre – 89 Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth BH8 8EB

Aimed at academics, policy makers, organisation and business leaders, practitioners and charities, this free event will explore the potential gains from a gradual and well-thought migration flow that benefits not only from high human capital but also from communities’ social capital.

More cohesion and more shared responsibility in our societies will lead to less conflicts and more collaborative practices. Firms will benefit in terms of their recruiting practices and policy makers will benefit by understanding who their real counterparts can be.

You’ll hear from Maria Boscher from the European Commission who is in charge of integration policies as well as representatives of leading universities including Oxford, London School of Economics, Aston and Bournemouth University.
