This exclusive event offers Brighton & Hove business owners and managers who have had great success trading beyond the city the chance to swap ideas, contacts and opportunities outside of Brighton.
Enjoy a delicious specially prepared three-course lunch at The Restaurant at Drakes, sit back and enjoy our speaker and be ready to exchange expertise with fellow Business Beyond the City businesses.
Simon Kimber designed his first website in 1995, whilst still at school. After working freelance since 1999 he launched his own company, DoYourOwnSite! in 2001. Rebecca Kimber has also worked freelance as a web designer and joined husband Simon at the business in 2004 to help the company grow.
In 2008 they hired their first employee, and re-branded as Create the following year. The idea for Create began when Simon realised that businesses wanted to update their web content quickly and effectively, and not just when their web designers had time to do it.
He set about creating a system that would allow them to do just that, and ten years on Create now hosts nearly 8000 websites and e-commerce stores. At this event, Simon and Rebecca will be talking about the challenges of not doing business in person and how they have sought to humanise a faceless service.
They will also be discussing the importance of innovation, and how they use it to benefit customers and inspire staff. This event is exclusively for businesses which have been trading for more than 1 year and do at least 40% of their business outside of the city.
