How to create and plan a brilliant event

POSTED BY Laura Green DATE: 24 October 2014

Two weeks ago we held our biggest event yet to celebrate our £250 million milestone - and what a success it was!

Our sellers, investors, journalists and friends of MarketInvoice came together to hear speeches from Shadow Business Secretary, Chuka Umunna and CEO of the British Business Bank, Keith Morgan, as well as a testimonial from one of our clients, Viv Parry.  

Food and drink flowed from 6pm and the new Xbox One got everyone up and excited to play for two top prizes, including headphones and a male grooming kit, both from businesses that our platform is funding.

The benefits of video content

POSTED BY Piers Garthwaite DATE: 17 October 2014

 

“Why bother with video content?” we hear you ask. Let us break it down for you by looking at the advantages and the types of things you could do with video.
