Free business workshops

FREE workshops for entrepreneurs across Lanarkshire are being offered over the summer

Business Gateway is offering the workshops in response to popular queries from new and existing business owners across the county.

Elaine Kerr, events manager at Business Gateway, said: “Time and time again local business owners are seeking advice and help on the same issues – they want to find alternative ways to market their enterprise in a bid to attract new sales and customers as well as promote their services to new markets.

“There has also been a demand to find out more about cloud computing so we have created a new seminar that will help people understand how to remotely store data and processes.”

The range of free events will be available alongside one-to-one advice and online support Business Gateway provides throughout the year. The programme, which takes place in the Atrium Business Centre, Coatbridge, includes internet marketing run throughout July and August, ‘A Day in the Cloud’ on August 30 and traditional marketing on August 18 and 30.
