Marketing, can’t live with it, can’t live without it. Actually in the almost 12 years that I have been in business I’ve not done a great deal of marketing. I send out the odd random newsletter or targeted email to a specific person or group of people and that’s about it. Although I [...]

By | March 23rd, 2016|Uncategorized|

Last week we launched the iCan Live event in Newcastle. It was much more than just my keynote presentation.
