In addition to the normal Chamber AGM business, this year we will be incorporating the Chamber as a Company limited by guarantee.
Also Carl French will be running a presentation about –
“Doing Business in the Age of Amazon”
What can you do as a small business when up against the might of the Amazon online monster?
High street shops are closing, we’ve seen nothing yet, and many other businesses are feeling the pressure. In this talk by Carl French, who runs the online publisher The Endless Bookcase based in Hertfordshire, Carl shares his own experiences, thoughts and practical suggestions on how to punch above your weight and not be knocked out by Amazon. He explores the value of ingenuity, resourcefulness, and co-operation with the experience and expertise in one’s own community. In particular, Carl talks about how authors can help a community to help itself.
This business of the damage that Amazon is doing to our High Streets, is an important one.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts, both concerns and solutions.
Bookings are closed for this event.
