Retail and social media strategies are particular specialities of Des Mulholland, who in addition to being a member of Facebooks Client Council has worked for and with such organisations as Dunne’s Stores, The National Trust, Woodies DIY, National Hardware Association and Haldane Fisher.

Des provides high-level business development strategies and management controls to build consistently improved business performance. He is strategically focused analytical, flexible and able to influence at all levels.

Des will be discussing where social media presence and selling fits into a business’ marketing strategy, why it should be an extension of selling techniques rather than replacing them and will illustrate by example what does and doesn’t work when generating sales when engaging with markets digitally.

Beforehand members of the creative industries in the council area of Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council are invited to come to the Civic Centre to be part of a new forum:

A council run forum giving members of the creative industries from the council area of Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council the opportunity to meet, network and discuss what they would like to see happening in the sector. The first of these forums will be facilitated by Des Mulholland and attendees will be able to speak towards what they would like to see the council do that could help develop the creative economy in the borough. There will be food available following the event.
