About our Lunch and Learn sessions in Bedford
We launched Lunch and Learn in Northampton in January 2016, and and due to its roaring success we have decided to launch our Bedford Lunch and Learn in June.
Our Lunch and Learn sessions are a hybrid of networking and learning. We facilitate a semi-structured agenda with a maximum of 15 business leaders of small and medium sized businesses. We guide the discussion through a range of topics in the world of online marketing. We cover topics such as the basics of online marketing, how to use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for your business, and the importance of planning content. And whilst we are able to share a range of hints and tips from our extensive marketing experience, there’s a huge amount of learning we can all take from the experience that other businesses have been through.
Each session is in a round-table, informal format, with as much discussion as possible. No question is a silly question. Each session costs £15, lasts 2.5 hours and will include time to network, eat lunch and learn something new that you can implement into your business.
If you like the sound of our Lunch and Learn networking sessions and would like to attend our Bedford session, you can book in by scrolling down or by calling us on 01604 779035.
We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with 44 Harpur Street and our sessions will be held in one of their business rooms.

Are our Lunch and Learn sessions for you?
We recognise that businesses are in all manner of stages in their life cycle, and some businesses will have more knowledge and experience of online marketing than others. That’s why we host a range of different sessions throughout the year in an effort to cater to different needs. Some of our sessions cover the basics, others are more advanced. We’ve hosted directors and marketing managers from organisations as large as 50 employees, right down to your sole trader.
The basic principles of marketing are the same regardless of the size of a business, and we help business leaders understand and translate these basic concepts in to a context relevant to them, so that they feel confident they can implement strategies that push their businesses forward.
