Alex Gibson invited me to Dublin to talk to a meeting of The Pudding Club. Not an offer I could refuse. The idea behind this club is that after a long day in the office marketers can socialise – drink a glass or two of wine – have a bite to eat and listen to a speaker talk about a specific area of marketing. No formality, no PowerPoint. Just listen, discuss, socialise, have fun and hopefully learn something new.
On returning to the UK I was suffering from withdrawal symptoms from a day without my beloved PowerPoint and thought I would record and publish the presentation.
After the event Alex interviewed me for one of his regular marketing podcasts. I think I am just about coherent. I did mention about the free flowing wine! My thanks to The Westbury Hotel (undoubtedly the place to stay in Dublin) for hosting the evening.
I had a great time, met some interesting people and had fun. Alex – thanks again.
