More support for local businesses

Onlincolnshire will offer another free online business support event in South Kesteven to meet demand in the area.

The awareness session will show businesses how they can make better use of broadband services on Tuesday 6th May at The Deepings Community Centre in Market Deeping.

The event between 5.30pm and 8.15pm follows a successful session at Stoke Rochford Hall near Grantham in March.

It will inform businesses about the support being offered by Onlincolnshire and will include taster sessions on how businesses can deal with change, developing a digital strategy and social media.

Delegates can then sign up for masterclasses which will look at e-commerce and internet marketing, as well as social media surgeries on Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook to help improve business practice and performance. One-to-one advice and support is also available through the project.

Cllr Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economic Development at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “We don’t use any techy jargon, so you don’t need to be an expert in IT to attend. It’s a way for businesses to pick up some tips and sign up to in-depth masterclasses delivered by experts in their field. We’d like to see as many businesses as possible take up this opportunity.”

Networking starts from 5.30pm and includes a buffet dinner. The event then runs until 8.15pm. It 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).
