On The Edge are back for the summer and better than ever – Thursday saw them taking over The Goldsmiths Centre on a seriously sunny day to host Stephen Waddinton of Ketchum PR & Tony Tarquini of PEGA for the Marketing within Technology Sector breakfast event (#TechBrek). Both speakers shared invaluable insights into the #MarTech sector, including personal branding, the importance of having a point of view and how social media marketing can create ROI for tech businesses.
