I had a fantastic time at BrightonSEO, April 7th. Kelvin and his team put on a great event. There were 6 tracks, so many smart speakers, I took down some notes from the sessions I attended in Auditorium 1.

As we come to the end of 2015, I have seen Search London grow from strength to strength. I took over the meetup group from my colleague, Judith Lewis in October 2010, renamed it to Search London and rebranded it and now 5 years on, I have nearly 1600 members.
To celebrate turning 5 years old, I am hosting a Birthday Party. Search London is privately funded and therefore we rely on ticket sales as well as sponsorship.
I am pleased to announce we have four sponsors at the event.
Majestic is our Gold Sponsor. They have been involved with Search London back in March 2013 when we had our first afternoon Search event at Google Campus. Dixon Jones will be speaking at the meetup.
