Zapd Conference Meeting

New sales and marketing conference, ZAPD, launched for SME businesses on the South Coast

Businesses across the South will be able to get the latest info on sales, marketing, social selling and content from a new one-day conference, which will take place at The Southampton Harbour Hotel on the 14th May 2020. The event has been created by Kristy Davies-Sumpter of Zest, a Southampton-based sales consultancy and Nicky Rudd, MD of award-winning content marketing and PR agency Padua Communications based in Fordingbridge.

Nicky and Kristy have previously created and run events for the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

The conference has a great line-up of expert speakers including:

  • Daniel Disney, an expert on LinkedIn and social selling
  • Paul Tansey of Poole marketing agency Intergage
  • Nick Hollis, an ex-sales and marketing professional who is one of a handful of people who have scaled all seven summits including Everest, Tubkal and Kilimanjaro.

Nicky says: “The sessions that Kristy and I worked on previously had such great feedback that we decided to run a full day, where SME business owner/managers and sales and marketing professionals can come together to learn and network. There is nothing else like this in our region and we are thrilled with the calibre of speakers who have agreed to come and speak.”

Kristy adds: “We wanted to create a day of business focus that we would be happy to go to ourselves. As business owners, your time is your most precious asset. We want attendees to feel like they have taken a day out but that is has been absolutely worth it for the business advice and connections made in that time.”

ZAPD has been designed to include the speakers sessions, several times for facilitated networking and a group workshop element. The entry price also includes a two-course lunch and free parking.
