Cut through the noise and connect with your audience | Bumble x Hannah Cox

Often so much of our time is spent online connecting with the people we want to see our brand, but its the human connection that will help you build a strong, loyal and returning audience. While having a strong digital marketing strategy is important, audiences are still looking for the human touch. This workshop will look at how you can humanize your business or brand and connect with people in a new way. 

We can rely on digital marketing for efficiency, but not to show trust, honesty, and integrity as much as human connection can. 

Hannah Cox is a Creative Business Owner with over a decades experience in festivals, live events and marketing. She runs Stag and Raven, a UK Art & lifestyle brand and betternotstop a lifestyle site and events focused on building a life you love through meaningful work and adventure.

Hannah has recently returned from a 18,000 mile overland trip between the UK and Bhutan, visiting eighteen countries researching Global Happiness and Wellbeing as a way to create stability and peace.

Get involved. cut the noise and connect with like-minded individuals in this eye-openind and relaxing talk!

Will the Creative Industries ever be truly diverse? A discussion by magneticNorth

Will the Creative Industries ever be truly diverse? A discussion by magneticNorth

With statistics on female, BAME and socio-economic representation in the creative industries stagnating or improving too slowly nationwide, magneticNorth asks: “will the creative industries ever be truly diverse?” 

The panel has been inspired by the newly launched BFI Filmography, designed by magneticNorth that has unveiled revelatory findings, including the fact that gender balance in British feature film is lower today in 2017 than it was in 1917.

Writer, Director and Producer of films such as Bend it like Beckham and Viceroy’s House Gurinder Chadha commented at the recent Filmography launch: “It’s a great loss to us as a nation and to us as an industry if our stories aren’t reflected. Films are documents, they reflect who we are. Diversity doesn’t mean putting a person of colour on crew, diversity means hearing stories from different perspectives.”

The event, which is part of the Design Manchester 2017 festival will begin with an introduction and exploration of the #BFIFilmography, by the BFI’s Stephen McConnachie and will follow with a panel sharing ideas on how we might begin to shift behaviours and cultural patterns to strive for an equal and thriving environment.

Panelists include:

Emmerdale Assistant Producer, Kate Brooks
Journalist and Writer, Kieran Yates (Chair)
Founder, Creative Mentor Network, Isabel Farchy
Amanda Akokhia, Photographer
Dior Bediako, Founder, Pepper Your Talk
Illustrator and general creative, Tash Willcocks

The event is part of Design Manchester 2017 and will be held at the city’s iconic cultural venue HOME on 16th October from 5.30-7.30pm.

Free tickets are here: https://www.fatsoma.com/magnetic-north/qg1sxzuk/will-the-creative-industries-ever-be-truly-diverse-a-panel-discussion-by-magneticnorth
