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.

Toby voting …or is he?? Click on image to enlarge!











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….
