A couple of people have asked what I am doing with searchABLE, a little event I am helping to put on next Monday at the Cross Keys in Leeds.
searchABLE is a reaction to the desire/whinges of a few people who are “lower down the food chain” in the Leeds search sector. Their boss won’t give them the time/money to go to events like, say, (and I’m not picking on them here, just illustrating) Think Vis and ionsearch. Those events are a hundred quid a ticket as well – to a lot of kids and kittens in the digital biz that from your own pocket is a lot of dough.
So, I’ve hoodwinked some of my colleagues in the sector to have a go at doing that (detail on who is over on the event’s Eventbrite page. We’re going to have a bash at putting that a right, to whatever degree. And thanks to the Cross Keys for giving us their upstairs room we can have a go at doing it for free to see if people fancy it.
It’s not a full-on conference – that’s not what this is about. It is about people who know search talking and sharing their insight and thoughts in a more intimate environment. Upstairs at the Cross Keys there’s a bar, there’s tables, there’s chairs, but there’s also a screen for the presenters to stand in front of.
The lucky few who have put their hands up to my calls are going to present on a number of search topics (there’s still room for a couple more!). And for a laugh I am going to be running SEO bingo through the event.
There are still tickets going (and it’s FREE remember – you’ll just need to buy drinks!) – and there’s also space for people to talk and present at. So, come along!
