April’s event from the Business Growth Hub lunch series will focus on the importance of digital transformation for businesses and will be held in Wigan on Friday 28 April.
The event will explore the benefits of embracing digital technologies to acquire new customers and aims to provide delegates with the confidence to adopt these technologies in the future, resulting in increased customer outreach, efficiency and ultimately business growth.
Jonathan Print, Digital Growth Advisor will provide an overview of the support provided by both the Business Growth Hub and Wigan Council that helps support businesses along their digital transformation journey.
Guest speaker Neil Ormesher, Projects Estimating Manager at ASG Stage Products, will share how, with the knowledge he gained through workshops and ongoing advice from Jonathan, he is now looking to reach and engage with new audiences using tailored social media campaigns, an optimised website and an integrated software package. He will also talk about the challenges faced when implementing these solutions and how we gained his Directors’ buy-in.
The event will be hosted by Jo Walker, Growth Start-up Manager who will provide an outline of the Hub’s wider business growth support offering*. It will also be an opportunity for you to network with an ever-growing community of Greater Manchester-based SMEs, partner organisations, speakers and members of the Business Growth Hub Team.
Don’t hesitate to book your place as our Business Growth lunch events are highly popular and the number of places is limited.
We look forward to seeing you at The Pier Centre in Wigan on Friday 28 April!
