Free technology workshops for independent retailers in Lincolnshire

Have your say

Lincolnshire’s independent retailers can give their business a new year boost, thanks to two county council projects.

In January and February, onlincolnshire and Business Lincolnshire will be running a series of free workshops, helping local retailers make the most of IT and the web.

These ‘Growing Through Technology’ workshop will each last two days, and are followed by further free 1-2-1 support. They will cover areas such as how IT and the web can minimise business costs, how to set up online sales, using Facebook, Twitter and other social media to attract customers and cloud computing.

The Grantham workshops will take place at The Boilerhouse on Caunt Road, on Wednesday, February 11 and Wednesday, February 18, from 9.30am to 4pm.

Coun Colin Davie, executive member for economic development, said: “With more and more business being done online, it’s important that local retailers make sure they move with the times.

“And these free workshops are the perfect introduction to all that digital technology and the web have to offer.

“We don’t use any complicated jargon, and the emphasis is very much on the practical steps you can take to make your business more profitable.

“Places are limited, so make sure you sign up early. This is not something you want to miss out on.”

The workshops are funded by the county council. To reserve your space or for more information, contact John Owens on 07809 631 597.
