In the New Year, West Sussex County Council is supporting a new initiative across the county to help small businesses who are finding the current climate commercially tough.

The West Sussex Recover & Rise in 2021 program is a series of nine FREE online workshops designed to give small businesses a robust toolkit to not only survive through another year of unpredictable times, but to thrive.

These sessions have been put together by local experts (Rume2, Shake It Up Creative & Creative Bloom in partnership with the County Council) to help business owners define, communicate and market in the right way to attract and retain customers throughout 2021.

From product/service definition to networking, from setting goals & KPIs to tracking success through analytics, from action planning to digital marketing, this program will give small and micro companies the structure and sales that many of them desperately need as we head into a new year.

The sessions will be run online and will take place at 12pm every Tuesday & Friday from Tuesday12 January.
