Winning Strategies to Grow Your Business Internationally: Learn the tactic…

July 16 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The journey from $200 in capital to international Million dollar powerhouse.

Starting a business has never been cheaper than it is now. Ten thousand businesses are started in New Zealand every year alone. The question is, how do you grow your business once you start it?

The options are endless, from PR, SEO, social, direct sales, to name a few. How can you grow and what tactics can you apply? And once you reach that growth in sales, how do you manage growth in people?

Why not learn from someone who has built his company with next to no money and has built a robust culture that nurtures a high-calibre team across three countries.

Welcome to the event series that will give you insight into New Zealand’s most successful self-starters.

At this event, we have founder and Ceo of PureSEO, investor and author Richard Conway sharing his story.

Richard has built his company PureSEO from $200 after migrating to New Zealand in 2009. Struggling to pay rent and with no network, he grew his company to 55 staff, spanning across New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. He has had the pleasure to spend time with Richard Branson on Necker Island, partied with Kim Dotcom and wrote the book on Search Engine Optimisation.

Join us for Pizza and refreshments.
