Following the success of previous launch events in Leeds and Sheffield, the meeting last night at York University Science Park Innovation Centre was a definite win for delegates, speakers and techmesh, alike. The York event was held in association with IT and Digital York.
techmesh - supported by Yorkshire Forward, aims to become the largest and most focused IT and Telecoms business network organisation in Yorkshire and Humberside.
Gary Rowbotham, techmesh programme manager, introduced the agenda and explained the potential benefits of being a Techmesh member and / or associate. Current associates of techmesh include: Green Communications, Inter-vention, Lee & Priestley, Knowles Warwick and MFL Science & Technology.
The first speaker of the evening was Dan Croxen-John, from Applied Web Analytics, his presentation explained how extracting value from a web presence was an evolutionary process, best achieved from regular analysis and on-going assessment.
Ian Newall from Huthwaite International, the sales improvement training company, shared an insight into the benefits of Spin Selling and business application. Ian is offering all techmesh members a 15% discount on Huthwaites Spin Selling courses.
Finally, Marcus Robinson, the founder of MR-ICT, a York and Leeds based company offering outsourced ICT support, discussed how he intends to utilise his techmesh membership to benefit his business and shared his thoughts on the advantages of joining techmesh.
Overall the event was a great success with sufficient opportunities to network after listening to the speakers, all this including great food and wine! The focus is now on the next techmesh event in Hull on 29th April at Hull University Business School.
