Digital support available for Grantham area businesses

Have your say

A digital project run by Lincolnshire County Council is seeing businesses in South Kesteven access free masterclasses in using technology and improving their business practices and performance.

The onlincolnshire project is also offering both one-to-one advice and support.

A free awareness session, aimed at showing businesses how they can make better use of broadband services, is being held at Stoke Rochford Hall on Friday, March 21.

People can sign up for the business support following the session. The masterclasses will range from selling over the internet and integrating social media into your marketing plan and tips on how to respond quicker to enquiries, to making better use of staff both in and out of the office.

Networking starts from 8.30am and includes a free breakfast, and the event then runs from 9am to 11.15am.

Councillor Colin Davie, executive member for economic development at LCC, said: “These sessions aim to help businesses make the most of new technology and understand the way it can help your business prosper.

“We won’t be using any techy jargon, so you don’t need to be an expert in IT to attend.

“This awareness session is ideal for any business looking to find out about the potential uses of the internet and how it can directly benefit them.

“The masterclasses will be delivered by experts in their field and will give delegates real skills which can then be used to boost their business. We’d like to see as many businesses as possible take up this opportunity.”

The event is open to all businesses in South Kesteven and is part of a wider project of support across Lincolnshire and Rutland being run by onlincolnshire. It is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
