Melanie Ellyard from Smart Bulldog will be available to talk to you about your tech business.

If you’re looking for feedback on your idea or your pitch deck, advice on raising funding or how to grow or scale, then you can book a slot.

It helps to have someone else to talk to, someone who is independent and impartial.

To book a slot simply register and one of the MSP events team will be in touch. More than one person representing a company per slot is welcome.

Only ten 30 minute slots available! Melanie Ellyard, CEO - Smart Bulldog |
