Wednesday 8th November in Bangor and Belfast in support of local refugees.
Wifi Refugees was formed by marketing expert Andi Jarvis in June of this year. The concept is simple; to help local small businesses grow with free advice, whilst at the same time raising money to help some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in our community.
It works like this; a Wifi Refugees volunteer will set up a clinic in a locally run coffee shop. A business owner, or several, will show up with some marketing questions and partake in a free, 20 minute mini consultation with one of our marketing experts.
Hopefully, they will feel they have had some useful advice and will feel inspired to make a voluntary donation to the charities that are supported by Wifi Refugees. We suggest £10, but that’s not compulsory.
As a bonus the local coffee shop is supported too with a selection of new customers buying coffee and buns on the night.
Wednesday 8th November sees Wifi Refugees return to Red Berry, Bangor (6.00 – 8.00pm) and host its first session at Arizona on Lisburn Road, Belfast (7.00 – 8.00pm). Both clinics will be run by marketing experts; Kerry Hall in Belfast and Andi Jarvis in Bangor.
Kerry has over 15 years experience in marketing and communications, which spans diverse subjects from social media to employee recognition programmes. Andi’s experience covers a wide range of marketing, digital marketing and communications areas. Between them, they aim to help local business with practical advice, hints, tips or contacts that will help them improve.
The Wifi Refugees events are free, with a suggested voluntary donation of £10 for a consultation. They will be at Red Berry in Bangor (6.00 – 8.00pm) and Arizona, 406 Lisburn Road, Belfast (7.00 – 9.00pm) on 8th November.
No appointment necessary, just turn up, buy a cuppa, look out for the Wifi Refugees logo and wait for a slot.
