LAUNCH IN LONDON | Speaker introduction: Mark Leaver – DIT

London is a great place to be for tech businesses – it has access to great pool of talent, capital and investors, it boosts a large tech community and it’s perfectly located in the middle of time zones.

LAUNCH IN LONDON | Speaker introduction: Joanna Dodd – Rochester PR

London is a great place to be for tech businesses – it has access to great pool of talent, capital and investors, it boosts a large tech community and it’s perfectly located in the middle of time zones. With all these possibilities available – how can businesses and entrepreneurs utilise these to the best extent possible, and what else is needed to succeed?

On 14 June, Goodwille are hosting the event Launch in London as part of London Tech Week. The event targets startups, tech businesses and entrepreneurs with aspirations to launch in London, and will provide insights and expert advice on everything you need to succeed with your tech business in London.

One of the speakers at the event is Joanna Dodd, Managing Director at Rochester PR Group. Get to know Joanna a bit better and learn what she will bring to the discussion during the event!

About Joanna

Joanna is Managing Director of Rochester PR Group, a marketing and PR consultancy which specialises in market entry.  Over the years Joanna has helped launch many companies and brands and has even PR’d a space mission.  She builds long-term relationships with clients (way longer than the industry norm) and is one of those well-connected, problem-solvers that clients respect.

During Launch in London, Joanna will speak about:

Whilst most businesses heave a sigh of relief when they land in the UK, for Rochester the work is just beginning.  Joanna will give advice on how to stand out from the crowd, why getting your content in shape is important and why you should start with your messaging for the UK market, answering the “why here and why now” questions.  Whilst not naming names, she will also give some examples of what people get wrong and remind you that you have only one shot to make that first impression – so make sure it’s the right one.

About Rochester PR

Whilst Rochester delivers all that you would expect from an agency in terms of its services for example media relations campaigns; social media and influencer campaigns; event management; content creation and marketing, it recognises that market entry clients are different. They require specialist advice and a flexible approach.  Everything Rochester does is about getting your brand to be better known and understood, helping deliver more business.
