    Dear Antonia

    We are hosting the UK Internet Summit in Bournemouth 8-10 October 2014 and we would absolutely love you to come and speak for us if you’re willing and available, please.

    The UK Internet Summit is a 3 day event, featuring wonderful guest speakers such as James Caan and Richard Farleigh of Dragons’ Den fame and many others, hopefully including your good self. The principle idea is that delegates learn, in just 3 days, how to set up, market and run their own online business, no matter what they choose to do.

    The target audience is 4000 people who have, or want to have, their own online business and the demographic range is wide, from entrepreneurs and business professionals to stay-at-home-parents and craft/cottage industries. We feel that the stay-at-home-parent demographic is currently under-catered for, which is why we instantly thought of you and would feel hugely privileged if you’d participate.

    We’re working on the website at present so please don’t be put off if it looks a little ‘off kilter’ but I told our CEO that we needed “fewer suits” and a wider-ranging image generally to appeal to all sectors of our target audience. Please feel free to visit though, at

    At “UKIS 2014”, one lucky attendee will win a massive £30,000 to set them up in business, along with their own ready-to-go website and six months’ mentoring from the Hazmat Publishing team. We will be donating 10% of the event profits to the wonderful charity “Together for Short Lives” ( in a special heart-warming presentation on the final day.

    We are also extremely keen to help the local community offering:
    • 50 free places to local homeless people under the age of 21
    • 100 Early Bird tickets and 100 Student tickets for a staggeringly low £97 for the entire three days
    • 50% discount to students once the first 100 special student tickets have sold
    • 50% discount to single parents
    • ‘Pitch It’ booths where budding business brains can present their entrepreneurial ideas for investors’ consideration

    I really hope this is something of interest to you and would be gratefulif you would kindly let me know. If you would like to discuss our invitation in more detail, please let me have your contact number and a convenient time to call, so I can set up a virtual meeting/call with our MD, Peter Watson.

    Thanks for your consideration in reading this and I hope to hear from you shortly.

    Thanks and regards

    PA to Peter Watson, Managing Director and Creative Head
