WEDNESday 26th SEPTEMBER

JP SHERMAN & MARIE HAYNES
Come. Listen. Learn. Meet awesome people. Get lots of (free) website-improving, traffic-increasing, customer-converting SEO goodness – courtesy of Optimisey.
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!)
6:15-6:30pm: A brief intro/hello from me then on to the good stuff:
6:30-7pm: Speaker 1: JP Sherman; How To Leverage Your Site Search
7-7:30pm: Speaker 2: Marie Haynes; Google’s Quality Rater Guidelines
7:30-8pm: 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.
8pm: 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:
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.
It’s possible someone might not turn up and you could take their place – up to you if you want to risk it. But if 65 people turn up and you’re number 66… sorry.
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 Cass Centre. More details to follow but check out their website to find out more.
It’s pleasingly close to Cambridge’s main train station (about a 15 minute walk).
Dress code & What to bring
Dress code? Don’t be daft. So long as you’re clothed (at least from the waist down) what you wear is up to you.
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.
If you’re job hunting or recruiting in Cambridge or East Anglia – talk to them, they’re ace (and not pressurey like some recruiters).
Breadcrumb Media offer a range of marketing and media services and for the Optimisey events, they’re videoing the terrific speakers.
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.
