In addition to keynote speaker Brad Burton, delegates will hear from a number of other experienced professionals giving tips and advice on growing their business.

This includes Google, who will run a Digital Garage master class on how to get new customers to find you through search optimisation, local listings and search engine marketing.

Alice Mansergh, Director of Google Marketing Solutions for UK and Ireland, said “Google’s products and free digital training are a growth engine for people and businesses up and down the country. So if you want to boost your career, or turbocharge your business, please join us at our Digital Garage and talk to our experts.

The conferences are organised by Best Business Events and supported by the IoD Kent Branch and FSB. Director of Best Business Events, Carole Black, said: “This is aimed at businesses who want to accelerate their business and create sustainable profits. It will also give them valuable insights and advice from a panel of professionals on everything from marketing to gaining new customers. This includes Google and we are really pleased to have them speak at the event. At the same time, it will also help with professional development as attending will mean they earn valuable CPD points.”
