Richmondshire businesses encouraged to sign up for a free digital masterclass with Google

  •  Experts from Google come to the Holiday Inn at Scotch Corner on 27th November to give local businesses a masterclass in using the internet to turbo-charge their growth.
  • The Digital Garage on tour will be co-hosted by local MP Rishi Sunak.
  • Local businesses can sign up to attend.

On 27th November the Google Digital Garage on tour will arrive in Richmondshire to give local businesses the chance to attend a free masterclass and learn crucial skills for the digital age.

 Experts from Google will run a seminar and one-to-one mentoring sessions that offers advice and tips to local business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs on making the Internet a growth engine for their business.

 The event is being co-hosted by local MP Rishi Sunak, Hambleton District Council, Richmondshire District Council and Superfast North Yorkshire.

 The tour is part of Google’s Digital Garage project – a commitment to provide digital skills training to 200,000 small businesses across the UK by the end of 2016. Government research shows that SMEs with a strong web presence grow more than twice as quickly as competitors, create more than twice as many jobs, and are 50% more likely to sell outside of their immediate region.

By encouraging and supporting a variety of businesses to use the Internet effectively, from entrepreneurs and one-man-band start-ups, to larger companies, these workshops aim to prove that, with the right training, any business can become a digital business.
