The head of Ipswich-based digital agency Measured Brilliance will be guest speaker this week at five meetings of the free monthly business clubs run by Suffolk enterprise agency Menta.


Sam Parnell, whose team specialises in building e-commerce solutions, developing apps and teaching businesses how to read and understand their online data, will be attending sessons of five clubs, in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Bury St Edmunds, Sudbury and Haverhill.

They will be relevent for those thinking of selling online, or those who already sell online and want to generate more income.

Sam Parnell said: “Selling online can generate a sizeable return, when it’s done well. I’m offering impartial, no-nonsense advice about which solution will work for your product or service. It will be filled with advice and guidance.”

Phil Pethybridge, who hosts the Menta business clubs, has brought Sam in after identifying a need across Suffolk, “I’m very excited that Sam will be running these sessions,” he said. “Understanding how to sell online and the appropriate platforms can really help many Suffolk businesses to grow.”

The clubs will meet for an hour and a half and booking is not required. Venues and dates include:

: : Sudbury: Sudbury Town Hall, Market Hill, Thursday, June 5, 10am to 11.30am.
