How to deliver the perfect online event!

How to deliver the perfect online event!
As the nation begins to open back up, one thing is for sure - digital events are here to stay! Online events can be a great tool for you to grow your business, maintain customer engagement and even increase cash flow.
To help you deliver professional and effective digital events, Small Business Britain & BT's #SkillsForTomorrow have partnered up with virtual events expert Lorna Reeves to host a FREE webinar this Thursday 15th April.
About the session:
Whether you're looking to start or to improve your current online events, join expert Lorna Reeves who pivoted her own events agency during lockdown 2020 to offer virtual events to her clients. In this session you will learn how to:
  • Deliver with more impact and presence
  • Maximise attendee experience and attendance rates
  • 10x your attendee immersion and experience, to elevate your brand and offer even more value
About your host:
Lorna left a 15-year career in Forensics in a major UK police force, most of that career at management and Senior Leadership level, to start her multi-award winning wedding planning company MyOhMy Weddings, which has grown primarily on recommendations of satisfied clients.
After building this business successfully, MyOhMy Events was born out of a want to give delegates a 4D experience, and the business works hard to understand the companies and brands in order to elevate their learning events to an exceptional level.

The Duke of Edinburgh

10 June 1921 - 9 April 2021

On behalf of Harlow & District Chamber of Commerce we are deeply saddened to learn about the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

Since his marriage to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 20th November 1947, the Duke dedicated his life to serving this nation and being Her Majesty's 'Strength and Stay' throughout their marriage.

The Duke was involved with some 800 charities or bodies, with a particular interest in scientific and technological research, industry, the environment and sport. His dedication and steadfastness to the country leaves a legacy that will not be forgotten.

We send our most sincere condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family at this time.

May he rest in peace.
