Description

Welcome to Amazon Academy 2019

The Amazon Academy programme is a series of free events to help small businesses succeed in the digital economy. Since 2016, more than 3,000 SMEs have attended Amazon Academies across the UK to learn how to scale their business.

As a small business owner (or someone thinking of starting your own business), you will learn how to use the power of the internet and technology to boost productivity, grow your export sales and build your brand (if a brand owner). You will be able to hear from a range of Amazon speakers who will provide advice and insights on growing your sales on Amazon, as well as a selection of independent experts who can advise on the broader issues facing businesses today. Attendees will also have the chance to go behind the scenes of Amazon's Rugeley fulfilment centre during the day.


What happens on the day?

In the morning, you'll be able to find out how you can make the most of the digital opportunity as a small business, with insight from Amazon, Enterprise Nation and other independent experts and successful entrepreneurs.

Ever wondered how Amazon delivers for its customers? Event attendees can go on a behind the scenes tour of Amazon Rugeley's fulfilment centre and see what happens when you click ‘buy’ on Amazon.co.uk.

Tours will begin every 15 minutes and will last 30 minutes. All guests must wear flat, closed-toe and closed-heel shoes (no sandals or high heels). We recommend wearing comfortable shoes/trainers. Hair which falls below the shoulders should be tied back. Please note no photos are to be taken during the tour.

You'll also enjoy a networking lunch with fellow entrepreneurs and experts.
