Guess who went to 'Scaramanga Marketing' Marketing Workshop Yesterday??

Well, this lucky guy for a start.….…

Guess who went to Scaramanga’s Mar­ket­ing Work­shop

Get­ting on for 3 hours of fact find­ing, inspir­a­tion­al Mar­ket­ing on a Budget! Giv­en by Claire Scara­manga and Ruby Plen­der­leith, respect­ively Man­aging Dir­ect­or and Mar­ket­ing Exec­ut­ive of Scara­manga Mar­ket­ing.

A mena­ger­ie of 20 or so new busi­nesses gathered at The Start Up Croy­don Premises.

Tim Higham, Film maker. Thowheetha Shaah, Fam­ily Soli­cit­or and Medi­at­or. Simon de Cin­tra, help­ing presenters to con­fid­ently present etc., too many to men­tion apart from Miko Greet­ings aka Miko Car­toon…of course! 🙂

We learnt about mem­or­able brand­ing and get­ting your busi­ness brand out there! Twit­ter being use­ful for up to date brief con­ver­sa­tions, face­book for more detailed news. Drip feed­ing inform­a­tion, con­sist­ency and build­ing trust. Etc Etc Etc.

What I thought so impress­ive, was that Claire and Ruby took time out of their very busy sched­ule to share their know­ledge. Scara­manga being a very major play­er in mar­ket­ing com­pan­ies. You should see their list of cli­ents! Phew!

So my advice is to look out for their next Mar­ket­ing on a Budget Work­shop. In the mean­time check out their wise words.

Will this ref­er­en­dum ever truly endum

In or Out” said the snail to the slug
a ques­tion for the belly but­ton
or the nose of a pug

But its now one for us, and a big one it is
It’s the future for us, for our lov­ers, our kids

Wheth­er to take back con­trol, to be inde pen dant
from the con­tin­ent­al chains and the cold hearted rant
of those European fiends, all want­ing to live here
telling us when to grow veg­gies and how to drink beer

Or stay in the net of a big fam i ly
who make sure all is fair for you and for me
where the bor­ders are whis­pers of wars that once were
where we share such great know­ledge, strange wit and cul­ture

The words of our sin­is­ter and slimy prime min­is­ter
to the rants of des­pair for the one with the hair
have muddled our tongues and twis­ted our brains
‘cause all that we want is a Europe that’s fair

Like spoilt bratty kids they do shout, they do scream
“he is so wrong” or “she is so mean”
“my daddy has told me to stand by our Liz”
“well mine says the oppos­ite, what ever that is”

We the people must say what to do
we, the pub­lic, the great Brit­ish folk
we, the stock, the par­lia­ment­ary joke
the weight has been dumped on the shoulders of mum­mies
on our friends on our foes by those ref­er­en­dum­mies

A cross ours to carry to the cold vil­lage hall
a cross forced upon us to make us feel tall
a black broken pen­cil and a paper to greet us
should remind us all how they really do treat us
like fools to the slaughter half stunned by a grub­ber
‘cause behind every cur­tain is the man with the rub­ber….
