BBC Friday 24 April 2015 – “Grow Your Business With A Bullet Point Marketing Plan”

Join us this Friday for an exciting BBC Business Workshop with marketing magician and sensei Ken Sethney.

Ken is a proud BBC Regular. He spent many years in the marketing business as a copywriter, creative director, business consultant and marketing coach. Now, he volunteers his time to help people start and grow their companies, and is a mentor with Kitsap SCORE Association.

Ken’s presentation will focus on six questions everyone needs to answer to create their own bullet point marketing plan. When your plan is ready you can put it to work and grow your business. Ken’s contact: [email protected].
