Geoff Major’s 2014 charity adventure idea needs professional 3rd party support to project plan it, risk assess the route, validate the proposed route, support the 174 other people required to take part in it, and build a multi-channel PR campaign, all capable of delivering £100 000 for charity.
Geoff’s first step is to get 129 companies to sponsor the planning of the event, with an investment of just £129 each. All money will be managed through an accountancy company. In return there are a series of benefits for the companies (or individuals) involved, including: -
a) Their company logo (or symbol, or photograph of a loved one) on each top to be worn by 7 people as part of the final leg of a world-first journey. All 129 logo’s will be featured on each top.
b) The same logo (or symbol or photograph) on a stand at the north of England’s biggest business conference and exhibition; the Yorkshire Mafia Conference 2013 at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.
c) Logo (or similar) to be featured in every PR release and be promoted to the fore in 2 of the PR release, along with 4 others per PR release.
d) 12 free places to take part in the final leg of the adventure; that’s a 1:11 chance to win a seat that would cost you £500, and will have significant press coverage.
e) 3 lucky ‘129 Club’ members will have their logo published in a paper or magazine article; winners to be picked at random.
SMileS SMS are part of the ‘129 Club’ and look forward to helping Geoff with his 2014 charity challenge.
The Yorkshire Mafia Conference will be held at the Leeds Royal Armouries from Wednesday 21st March – Thursday 22nd March 2012. If you want to find out more about this Conference such as seminars and who will be exhibiting you can visit the official conference website here.
There are over 3000 delegates coming to the conference and over 155 exhibitors, with SMileS SMS & ME Consultancy Ltd being one of those exhibitors. Seeing as the conference is going to be filled with plenty to do we thought we better tell you why you need to pay our stand a visit!
Firstly, if you visit our stand you will be able to learn more about what we do and we may offer up some services/products that might be of interest to you.
ME Consultancy provide customers with advice on their telecoms expenditure and implement telecoms solutions that will give you the best value for money from the services required. We can provide a full review of voice and data spend and provide access to a wide range of products from the BT retail and wholesale portfolio. Feel free to bring your bills along to the conference and we will do a free review there and then and identify any areas of cost saving or if you have any queries about your telecoms we would be happy to advise you on these matters.
Our sister company SMileS SMS is a business text messaging service. If you have any questions about Mobile Marketing then we are the stand for you. We can talk you through the range of SMS technologies we have on offer and how you can use them to effectively engage with your customers. We will also be able to show your how our SMileS portal works, so we can show you how simple it is to set up campaigns, upload your database and how you can monitor the success of campaigns through statistics. We also have some great offers for you on the day including discount on keywords, managed service and credit/text bundles. We will also have one of our biggest SMileS customers – Total Fitness with us so they can tell you how texting works for them.
The second reason to visit our stand is there’ll be cake! Every Friday in our office we have #CakeFriday which is when Sara (our boss) from the team bakes cakes and buns for the office, we tweet about it and often have visitors in on this day. We take the #CakeFriday ethos to all the conferences we exhibit at so why not come say Hi, have a chat with us and grab yourself a cake!
