The Free Business Seminar before lunch hosted by the SW Regional Cyber Crime Unit

Cyber Crime and Security

We have all heard about the large-scale computer and network intrusions, denial of service attacks, ransomware, and malware development.  Any of which has the potential to ruin a business, it's reputation, it's finances and more.

  • 17m Britons targeted by phishing, ransomware, online fraud and hacking
  • Each victim of cybercrime spent, on average, nearly two working days dealing with the aftermath of the attack
  • Each cyber breach costs an average of £894 for an SME, for large business breaches cost an average of £9,260

Operating as part of the Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU), SWRCCU work in collaboration with the five police forces in the region 

During this interactive session they will offer you guidance based on the very latest cyber threat intelligence from the National Cyber Security Centre including Cyber Essentials/+, 10 Steps to Cyber Security.

12 December 2018 - Mercure Bristol Brigstow Hotel, Bristol Waterfront

Business Enlightenment & Effectiveness Session 

Hosted by Michael Evans - Beyond Consulting

Father Christmas is real. It’s all about the proposition.

Brief Synopsis: Why do children believe and buy-in to the idea of Father Christmas? In the eyes of a child, Father Christmas is real, because the proposition that’s portrayed by parents, films and the whole event, delivers what they are wishing for, consistently, every year. And just like children at Christmas time, your customers are looking for you to consistently deliver a particular proposition – a solution to their desires, challenges and goals.

About Michael: Michael has 17+ years in marketing, sales and business management. Having started his career with Intel, he went on to develop his marketing skills at Vodafone and Netgear. He’s the proud co-founder of BPI OnDemand, an award winning Oracle CRM / CX solutions partner and following his fight with leukaemia, he set-up Beyond-Consulting, to get back to what he loves – creating great marketing for SME businesses.

Content: A great marketing campaign is based around a fantastic proposition. The proposition is what will be better, different or easier once the customer has used or experienced your product or service. So just like Father Christmas, how do you deliver happiness to your customers?

Why people should come: This session will improve your core message about what you and your business do for your customers.

What they will take from it: A clear outline of how to create a great proposition message and how to consistently deliver that proposition.

Actions for their business: Create your proposition, identify how you can improve the consistency of delivery and filter these into your marketing and way of doing business.
