We take a look back at our first ‘Lunch with Anand’ creative marketing networking event we hosted here in Bristol! 

A sunny afternoon in the cosy Beatroot Cafe, perfect for a pleasant, casual discussion among professionals, sharing ideas and thoughts on the latest in innovative marketing!

Our Lunch With Anand events are intended as a platform for various business professionals to come together and exchange ideas and solutions raised in response to the most recent challenges in marketing. Attendees can gain a fresh perspective and opinions in the hope of triggering a spark of creative inspiration, and this would all be coordinated by Rixxo’s Audience expert, Anand Mavani.

With the support of several Rixxo staff who also joined in, we accompanied a ‘roundtable’ format to encourage active participation. We must say, the event was a fantastic success.

Topics included: The importance of UGC (User Generated Content) to engage your audience and how to implement it quickly into your business. The concept of Artificial Intelligence and Amazon’s Alexa and how a newly formed enterprise can develop a brand “image” or “voice” to attract customers.

Just a few comments from the attendee’s: 

“I really hate stiff, formal networking events – this was nothing like that, really lovely people, didn’t feel stilted and did get me thinking about my marketing strategy for the following year – definitely left feeling inspired.”

 

“Loved the case studies. Always interesting and useful to see real life examples. Great to have a few members of the Rixxo team there who could share different expertise with us. Nice round table format.”

 

“Liked the open forum format, very welcoming, useful insights.”
