24 April 2013: Southern SIG Meeting

Topic: Acquisition

Date: Wednesday 24 April

Time: 20:00-22:00u

Location: Hotel Café Willems, Godsweerdersingel 58, 6041 GM Roermond, a few minutes' walk from Station Roermond.

Contact: Camilla Brokking-Maltas


The first half of the meeting will provide the opportunity for members to report on recent achievements, war stories and interesting career developments, and the second half will be a discussion.

The topic for April's meeting will be 'Acquisition', a perennially useful topic for both new and experienced word-workers. Members are invited to bring along their own tips and experiences. Some potential areas for consideration:

  • advertising - how/where, and which venues have proved useful (or not)?
  • cold calling/solicitation
  • networking (including social media)
  • the role of 'word of mouth' advertising in getting work.

All are welcome! If you would like to attend, please let me know by Friday 19 April.
