    Don't miss out on networking and seminar opportunities at this year's Leeds Business Week. We're looking forward to this Yorkshire business event, especially as there's always a lot of thought provoking events going on. There's lots going on, so to help you stay on top of it all, we've put together a handy highlight reel for marketers, digital marketers and graphic designers.

    At Gloss Recruitment, we know how important it is to stay on top of your game. That’s why we’ve put together this new list of highlights from 2017’s Leeds Business Week.

    Running from Monday the 9th to Friday the 13th of October, Leeds Business Week is an exciting programme of business events.

    It is arranged by the Yorkshire Mafia group and comes with a broad business focus, covering networking events, seminars and more light-hearted activities.

    The Pragmatist’s Guide to Cybersecurity

    Protecting your data- and navigating the web safely- is more important than ever. That’s why this seminar sounds like a great option for professionals across multiple sectors.

    Hosted by Aurora Tech Support, the seminar shows you how to implement solid cybersecurity protection in a simple, no-nonsense manner. It’s ideal for anyone looking to brush up on their security knowledge, or better explain its importance to their clients.

    This event runs from 1pm to 3pm on Monday the 9th of October, at The Pit on Merrion Street. Sign up for the event here.

    Marketing Events

    On Tuesday, you can attend one of several events focussed on marketing. From 10:00 to 10:45, B2B marketing agency Sharp Ahead shows you how to improve your digital marketing strategy, driving sales growth in the process. It runs from 10am to 10:45 at Aspire on Infirmary Street.

    If you’re looking to branch out into new areas, Syncmedia is offering a seminar on video marketing at the same time. It’ll give you tips on what makes the best video content, and how it can maximise your ROI. This event is held at Crown House on Armley Road.

    Finally, printing company Banners and Mash is holding a session on visual marketing. Focussing on areas like lead generation, sales conversion and customer retention, it takes inspiration from thousands of marketing campaigns.

    Building Your Personal Brand

    There are many ways to secure new clients for a business: networking, creating a great website, reaching out to local communities. Another way you may have overlooked is building your own brand. If that’s the case, this Thursday seminar may be just what you’re looking for.

    This event is aimed at business leaders and is hosted by Kate Betts, former BBC journalist turned director of Capital B Media. It’ll show you how to gain recognition from your peers and the media, and how that recognition can translate into greater business success.

    If this sounds like a useful strategy for you and your business, the event runs from 10am to 12pm. It takes place at the New Mills Event Space.

    Attracting Attention Being Sociable

    We close the week with this session from social media consultant Mark Longbottom. Today, people in all industries want themselves and their work to be noticed. Mark’s session shows how people’s attention can benefit you and your business, as well as how to best use Instagram hashtags, craft compelling CTAs, and even develop creative thinking.

    If you think this session would be useful to you and your business, head down to Entrepreneurial Spark on Park Cross Street at 2pm.
