Ready To Rock Amplify by Google

Julie and I were recently invited to the Google offices in London for an event called Ready To Rock Amplify!

The event itself was a great opportunity for us to meet face to face with our account manager, learn more about Google Partners, network with other business and take a sneak peek at Google’s extremely cool offices!

Although we didn’t get to test the Energy Pods, the trip was a great opportunity and very beneficial to us both as we are now even more clued up on Google Adwords!
