GROW with DIGITAL

GROW with DIGITAL is a comprehensive programme of digital training sessions to help you grow your business.

Running a business can be enough of a challenge without having to constantly keep up to date with changes in technology.  Given the option, most business owners would like to spend more time on digital marketing, internet security and improving efficiency, output, sales and profits by streaming processes, however with only 24 hours in the day and cash flow and customers to manage, it's easy to let these tasks repeatedly slip to the bottom of the to-do list.  

Enterprise Mendip - a partnership between Mendip District Council and Mendip's Chambers of Commerce - are hosting a programme of digital training with participating local Chamber's of Commerce to give you the knowledge, skills, professional advice and practical plans to grow your business by improving the digital performance.   From storage, to networking, digital marketing to energy saving, all of these practical sessions will help you to save time, money and or increase your sales.  

The workshops are interactive sessions, lasting around 3 hours and will be in small groups of around 10 - guaranteeing you quality time to focus on your business with a professional.  The seminars will be less interactive, with larger numbers in attendance, however, all seminars will feature 121 slots with the trainer in the following hour, allowing you time to resolve your specific enquiries. The surgeries and think tanks are interactive peer to peer sessions designed for those attending to help each other through your social media queries (with guidance).

The sessions are for established Mendip based businesses wishing to grow, if you are unsure as to whether any of the sessions are suitable for you, please call 01749 341345 or email: kelly.knight@mendip.gov.uk
