Creative Humber - January '11

Throughout the final year of my degree, my tutor and other staff members often talked, tweeted and facebooked about Creative Humber - a networking event for people in business in and around the Grimsby area. Up until June last year I was a student, but luckily now I am a full-time features writer it is now an event I can attend, and this Tuesday I did just that!

This month's event was a bit different to the usual meetings; East Coast Media ( @eastcoastmedia on twitter) were hosting their annual Media Industry week for their students, and one of the guest speakers was Lee Smallwood (@@leesmallwood), a brilliant social media / marketing expert! He spoke about furthering your businesses' potential through social media websites - but instead of me babbling on about what he said, you can see it for yourself! Just click on the link below for helpful tips and advice.

I really enjoyed this event, not only did I get to meet up with my tutor Emma (@rosereiki) and marketing extraordinaire Debs (@debscooper), but I also got to catch up with the lovely Hannah (@DREAMWALLS), creator of the fabulous Dreamwalls wall coverings, and I also met the lovely @sukesu! It was great going back to East Coast Media and seeing some of the old staff members and walking those corridors once again, and I also learnt a lot about the way social media works; my editor and the IT man from work seemed very impressed with what I told them! 

If you would like to know anymore about the event, then you can contact Creative Humber through twitter ( - I'm looking forward to the next time I can attend!

P.S. The buffet (especially the cakes) were LOVELY!
