Transform Talk #3: Twitter bots, AI-generated branding and kick-ass marketing moves

This year we’re running a series of free networking events we’re calling our 'Transform Talks’. They’re all about bringing the most up-to-date business thinking to Bradford on Avon and sharing deep, well-supported and useful business insights.

They’re all free to attend, and we use them to raise funds for a local youth homelessness charity, Amber, whose work we really believe in.

And we’re chuffed to bits that they’ve all been packed out. We’ve enjoyed them immensely and so have the people who’ve come along.

On Wednesday 8th May, our friends at Tiny Giant brought their fantastic event called ‘I’ll Be Back’ out of the big smokes of Bristol and London and to our very own little town in Wiltshire. We may be small, but we’re showing that Bradford on Avon packs a hefty creative punch.

A cracking lineup of speakers brought us up to speed:

Kerry Harrison from Tiny Giant eloquently argued the case for creativity in marketing - and in business.

Darrell Irwin from Cre8ion and Genesis Brands showed that you don’t have to fork out a fortune for great branding.

Derek Ahmendazai from Sharpshooter and Tiny Giant showed us all the clever things that bots can do. Twitter will never look the same again…

Kenda Macdonald from Automation Ninjas showed us how we need to keep our Minions happy to get customers to buy.

We normally decamp to a pub after our talks, to keep chatting about all the interesting things we’ve heard about - we think it’s what networking’s all about, although it’s much more fun than networking is often made out to be… This time, we followed up our talk in the beautiful Medieval West Barn with a selection of spooky tales over a pint in the Dandy Lion. Thank you to everyone who came along to join us. Watch this space for the next Transform Talk, coming in the autumn - and if you liked what you saw at our May event, get along to June’s ‘I’ll Be Back South West’, at the Square Club in Bristol on Tue 4th June.
