With regret the next Optimisey SEO Event is cancelled.

The next Optimisey, Cambridge SEO MeetUp was due to be on Thursday 19th March 2020.

We had some fantastic SEO speakers in 2018 and 2019 and we’re  kicking things off with a bang in 2020! Watch this space for updates and follow @Optimisey on Twitter to keep up to date.

Book your place

All the details you need are below.


6-6:15pm: Sign-in; put a name tag on (great ice-breaker, knowing someone’s name); chat, mingle; enjoy free beer/wine/soft drinks and nibbles (thanks to Brand Recruitment, Breadcrumb Media & Sistrix!)

6:15-6:30pm: A brief intro/hello from me then on to the good stuff:

7-7:30pm: Speaker 2: TBC: TBC

7:30-7:45pm: Brief wrap-up

7:45-8pm: Discuss all the mind-expanding, site-improving, actionable advice you’ve just received; mingle some more; drink some more free beer/wine/soft drinks; eat more nibbles.

8:01pm: Leave a 5* review of Optimisey and tell all your friends how much you loved it.

I’d hate to put words in your mouth but – just as an idea – how about:

The #Optimisey #SEO MeetUp was awesome! I’m definitely going to next one – you should come too. More info here: optimisey.com

Then go home or… join us somewhere else for more drinking, eating and chatting.

The Golden Hind pub is the place we’ll probably head to – simply because it’s the nearest and it sells beer.



You don’t need to print a ticket but if you haven’t RSVP’d to the event on MeetUp (you should see a very definite “You’re going” message, top right on the specific meeting you’re attending). Something like this:

If you don’t see that, please don’t come. If you think you should/did have a place but now don’t and really want to come drop me a message/Tweet me etc. and I’ll see what I can do.

I’d hate to have to turn you away but the numbers are set by the fire safety regulations of the venue so literally: if your name is not down, you’re not coming in.

If you want to meet us afterwards that’d be great though (see the 8pm bit above!).

Where is it?

This edition will be at The Bradfield Centre. More details to follow but check out their website to find out more.

It’s pleasingly close to the new Cambridge North train station (about a 15-20 minute walk).

Dress code & What to bring

Dress code? Don’t be daft.

That said, the venue or I might refuse you entry if we think what you’re wearing might offend or endanger you or other guests – so be sensible.

Bring something to take notes but most of all bring an open mind and a big smile. The word “networking” makes everyone shudder, not just you, so be friendly, be awesome and rest assured that everyone will be doing their utmost to be friendly and awesome too.

Do bring business cards (if that’s your thing) but remember:

Come to network – not get work.

No-one likes pushy sales people. Don’t be that guy/girl. And if you do get cornered by someone please: let me know – they won’t be invited again.

Who else is coming?

Nervous about networking? You won’t be the only one. I promise it will be better than you expect.

Worried you’ll be the only expert/novice? The only guy/girl? The only junior/director? You won’t be look:

The event would, literally, not be possible without the awesome sponsors.

If you happen to work for one of their competitors don’t come and drink their beer and crash the party – not cool. No sponsors, no event.

All you guys are terrific ❤. Thank you.

Not to mention all of you that are coming to the event.

Let’s face it: the sponsors aren’t getting involved to get my attention. There may be no such thing as a free lunch – but there is a free Cambridge SEO MeetUp, thanks to them and thanks to you.
