Speaker – Pauline Hefferman of Coco Design – How to generate PR Opportunities without spending a fortune!

Pauline Hefferman’s company Coco Design was launched in January 2011 on a shoestring and has grown rapidly to become a respected player within the world of bathroom interior design, winning her a prestigious business award within 4 months of trading.

Sarah Beeny has described Pauline’s business as a triumph of bootstrapping, smart service and super-slick purchasing. Pauline has been very savvy with her model: services are not free as with many competitors. This allows her to be impartial with her recommendations – she’s not relying on commission to make her crust!

During this talk Pauline will be sharing with us how to:

  • utilise social media to generate PR opportunities
  • create opportunities for yourself
