Aaron Rudman-Hawkins, SEO expert and managing director of Oxfordshire digital marketing agency, The Evergreen Agency, has recently launched Search Oxford, the only industry meet-up in the Oxfordshire area.
Search Oxford – a digital marketing meet-up in Oxford for the digital community of the city and its surrounding areas, is a rebrand of what was once ODWU meet-up (Oxford Digital Workers Union) that was first launched in 2017 and wasn’t continued after the pandemic hit, due to a change in circumstances.
This exciting new networking event welcomes everyone from agencies to freelancers and in-house digital professionals. The focus for Search Oxford is collaboration, knowledge sharing and community. Aaron’s plan is to continue to build the inclusive community that previous organisers Aisha and Charlie started and produce an opportunity to learn, network and interact with fellow digital professionals in the local area.
Aaron Rudman-Hawkins comments on his takeover of the former meetup and explains: “I loved the ODWU meet-ups and attended regularly. During Covid, their circumstances changed and long story short, I’ve taken it over and I’m going to bring this Oxford-based event back with a bang!
At this point, I want to give the former organisers of the event, Aisha and Charlie, a massive shout out as they did such a great job over 3-4 years to build ODWU into the fantastic event that it became, with 500+ members registered and regular attendees of 30-40+ for every event.”
Running a local networking event has always been a plan of Aarons that he is now ready to pursue, with the first event scheduled to take place on Wednesday 30th March from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at an Oxford-based venue.
Rudman-Hawkins also comments: “Search Oxford is going to quickly become Oxford’s premier digital meetup for anyone in the digital space. Regardless of your discipline or experience, if you’re in the digital space and are based in or around Oxford, this is the event for you.”
