Free Digital Workshops to Boost Rutland Businesses

A series of masterclasses from Digital Rutland will help local businesses make the most of the internet and opportunities it offers for growth. 

The events, which are being held at Greetham Valley Hotel, Golf Course and Conference Centre in Rutland, are the perfect opportunity for company bosses and their staff to learn more about the benefits of social media and digital marketing.

Kicking off the series is a Social Media: Set-Up and Go workshop on 30th April followed by a cyber security seminar on 5th May. On 12th May there will be a morning session on Twitter for business and an afternoon session on LinkedIn.

All of 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 Robert Rowan, Digital Rutland Project Manager, from Rutland County Council.

“These masterclasses offer businesses in Rutland 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 are part of a wider programme of support across Rutland and Lincolnshire being run by Digital Rutland in partnership with onlincolnshire.
