This week's episode is a bit different. I was delighted to be a guest on the ‘More Travel in Life Podcast’ with Jen Miller to talk about travel and business. I’ve always been fairly nomadic and been able to run conferences and training events remotely, and we discuss how I did it, and also how we manage a remote team distributed around the World.

I actually wrote a Medium post about how running live events are a great business for digital nomads which ties in pretty well to this interview.

This week's episode is a bit different. I was delighted to be a guest on the ‘SaaS Breakthrough Podcast’ with David Abrams from Demio to talk about EventsFrame, the ticketing system I co founded. I am often asked about the backstory of EventsFrame by listeners so this is a great way to tell the full story.

I thought I would post it here as I get into a lot of detail about how we founded the software and a lot of the problems and ‘war stories’ of our entrepreneurial adventure so far. If you are thinking about starting an app or software for event producers this is the episode for you!

In this interview we discuss:

Founding AppsEvents - our Google for Education Partner companyHow we came to start EventsFrame to use ourselvesAppSumo - What it is…...and the good, the bad and the ugly of doing …

The world of social media marketing is one I’m just getting to grips with so it was great to talk with Masiska who is an expert on the topic. She has worked not only with event organisers but with hotels, resorts and destinations which is interesting to hear about things from the other side also.

‘Social media influencers’ has a lot of negative connotations (to me anyway :)) but Mariska explains how to find experts in your field and how you can use influencers to make your event a success ...even on zero budget.

In this interview we discuss:
