Jo will be sharing on how to grow your business well. This session will include marketing tips, to practical business advice.
What will you be speaking about at Launch?
I’m going to be one of the speakers on the growth panel during Launch. I will be sharing marketing tips and things that we’ve done to grow our agency over the last eight years that means we now have a number of organic leads coming in each and every week.
What advice would you give your 10-year-younger self, when it comes to your career path?
Trust your gut instincts. They’re always right, don’t ignore those red flags, if something doesn’t feel right, it isn’t.
Why should partners come to launch? What do you think they will gain from it?
If you are on the fence about coming to the conference, you need to book your ticket because it’s going to be an incredible two days. The Rocketspark team always put on amazing events. For me, I love coming to things like this because you can never stop learning in business. Hearing from other people who have been there before you, they always have the most incredible ideas and are so willing to share those so it’s going to be a great opportunity to meet new people and you never know what opportunities might come out of those interactions.
