Delegates at YEN Expo, a major Bradford business conference, will have a one-off chance to benefit from a multi-million pound digital initiative to improve online skills. Google’s Digital Garage seminar will show delegates some of the ways in which to make businesses more visible online so that new customers can find you, as well as the basics of digital marketing and some of Google’s various online marketing tools which can help business owners to reach prospective customers.
A 40-minute presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with Google digital experts.
Digital Garage is part of Google’s commitment to train two million Europeans in digital skills and is supported by the Confederation of British Industry, Federation of Small Businesses, Business is Great and the Government.
Alice Mansergh, director of Google Marketing Solutions for UK and Ireland said,
“Google’s products and free digital training are a growth engine for people and businesses up and down the country.
“So if you live in or around Bradford and you want to boost your career, or turbocharge your business, please join us at our Digital Garage and talk to our experts. We can help you connect to new customers, help boost your productivity or improve your employability no matter what field you work in.”
