Awareness Raising Seminars

A series of three-hour awareness raising events. The purpose of these events is to raise awareness of the subject matter but to actively promote the action planning workshop programme and provide an opportunity for delegates to participate in a Q&A session following the event presentation. Delegates will leave the seminar with a clear understanding of the subject matter to reach an informed decision with regards to the introduction or further development of this new technology within their organisation

These full-day workshops will equip business delegates with the knowledge and skills required to plan and implement  selected digital  technologies and for the transfer of knowledge and skills to key personnel within the business.

Best workshop I've been to, so relevant and current

Laura Bruce, Steel City Marketing, Sheffield

Really impressive workshop, with great in depth practical advice and examples. The explanation of hidden feature on social media was very useful and I will be going away from the session looking at building and executing a full social media strategy for my business. Thank you again for providing me access to workshop and the information if delivered.
