Seminars and webinarsSeminars, whether delivered in-person or online, are a great opportunity to showcase your expertise to an engaged audience. Up to five business leaders and experts - including you, as a sponsor - will discuss the key issues of the topic in a panel discussion chaired by TheBusinessDesk.com. The audience is generated by us, using direct marketing, news stories, display advertising and social media activity on TheBusinessDesk platforms. Each event would be given its own social media handle allowing social media debate, and expanding the event's reach. The discussion is then featured across two news stories published on TheBusinessDesk.com, and the relevant region's news email, highlighting the key points raised by the panel.
RoundtablesRoundtables are a fantastic way to make strong connections and to really understand the issues and perspectives about the theme of your choice. TheBusinessDesk.com will work with you to understand the types of businesses you want to build relationships with and to scope out the themes and discussion structure to meet your needs. We will bring together relevant senior business figures and industry leaders to join you at the roundtable, which is chaired by one of our journalists. The roundtable typically lasts for 90 minutes, with networking before and after. The post-event coverage piece includes two news stories on TheBusinessDesk.com, and the relevant region's news email. Roundtables are typically in-person events but can also be held virtually.
Viewpoint - sponsored columnsTheBusinessDesk receives, seeks out and researches hundreds of potential news stories every day but only a selection of these reaches our news pages. Those that are published are selected by the editorial team on their newsworthiness. Many of the press releases we receive are thought leadership pieces, which very rarely are newsworthy in themselves. By their very nature they are often advertorial and seek to promote a business's products or services. However, if you have content, expertise, or thought leadership that you want to communicate to our subscribers then we do run a limited number of sponsored articles each week that appear on the TheBusinessDesk.com home page and which are included on the news emails. These sponsored articles are often made up as a series, delivering content over a number of weeks or months as a way of delivering an important and consistent message to your local business community. With TheBusinessDesk.com receiving more than 300,000 unique visitors each month, a Viewpoint piece can be a targeted way to promote your offer to business leaders and decision-makers.
