Free Digital Workshops for East Lindsey Businesses

1st April 2015

The events, organised by onlincolnshire, are the perfect opportunity for businesses in the area to learn more about the benefits of social media and cloud computing.

The Brackenborough Hotel in Louth will host two masterclasses on 14th April, the first of which will be a seminar on cloud services, from 9am until 12.30pm, introducing delegates to the cloud and how it can benefit their business. The afternoon class, from 1pm till 4.30pm, will discuss the benefits of Pinterest and Instagram for businesses.

The events are free of charge for eligible businesses, but places are limited so booking is essential.

“We live in a technology-driven world and businesses need to keep up with the latest advances in order to survive,” said Bryn Davies, Principal Development Officer at Lincolnshire County Council.

“These masterclasses will offer businesses in Lincolnshire access to free training delivered by people who are experts in their field. They are ideal for those who want to get up to speed with the digital world and learn vital new skills. The council is keen to support local firms in this endeavour, helping them to compete on a national and international level.

“The classes will also provide practical, jargon-free advice and will equip delegates with the knowhow they need to put their business on the online map.”

Part-funded by the East Midlands European Regional Development Fund, the courses –which are also being run in Lincoln, Gainsborough, Spalding and Sleaford – are part of a wider programme of support across Lincolnshire and Rutland being run by onlincolnshire.
