Promotion event aims to find out what makes people tick

13th Feb

The team at The Promotion Company in Hull is planning its annual event, Promote and Prosper, which takes place on Thursday, February 28, in the Canham Turner Building at the University of Hull.

Supported by the industry’s top promotional product and branded clothing suppliers, who display more than 2,000 items, the event evolves each year with guest speakers and seminars to inform, educate and inspire.

A Question Time-style session will be hosted by Blair Jacobs, who will be joined by a panel of experienced and well-respected busines people from Hull including; Martin Lauer from the One Point, Christina Colmer-McHugh from Moodbeam, David Kitney from Emmerson Kitney and Paula Litten from Pro-Fusion Partnerships. They will raise the question: it’s not personal, its business – is this an outdated approach? Do we need to engage emotionally, and if we do, doesn’t that make it personal?

Mike Rice from Hugh Rice Jewellers will discuss ‘What makes people tick?’ He has gained vast knowledge and experience since joining his brother in the watch and jewellery trade in 1976 and has helped the company to become a nationally recognised and award winning jewellers.

Angela Oldroyd from the Promotion Company says: “This is always an exciting time of year, our creative juices are in full flow to make this a memorable occasion.

“I am delighted with the support from our suppliers once again this year, our registration for the event is going really well and I am so looking forward to hearing this year’s speakers and their views on an interesting theme.

“Last year we welcomed over 160 guests and this year we are set for more, which is great as we have some big news to share from the Promotion Company.”
