Description

Leading To Grow Programme: Managing Digital &New Technology Adoption

We are delighted to invite you to one of our initial half-day workshops taking place at Kingston University London on the 24th and the 26th March. This is part of the Leading to Grow Programme and will involve an introduction to using digital technology in your business and also provide an opportunity to meet the team and other businesses.

The Leading to Grow Programme is initiated to support small businesses to grow, innovate and increase productivity through adopting digital and new technologies. It comprises an initial half-day training followed by one-to-one training for entrepreneurs and small business owners. The training is fully funded by the Business Basics Fund from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and Innovate UK.

The programme will help small business owners to explore digital and new technologies suited to their business goals, and to develop the management capabilities they need to implement the technologies. The programme is part of a consortium of business schools across England accredited by the Small Business Charter.

Please select one of the dates if you would like to attend.
