The Recover and Rise programme provided by the County Council aims to help small businesses in West Sussex cope with the current business challenges and lay the foundation for future success.
Nine workshops have already been delivered by Rume2, Creative Bloom and Shake It Up Creative, attracting more than 450 bookings. Topics included business planning and collaboration, digital marketing and local Search Engine Optimisation. Now, because of the level of interest from businesses, a further three sessions will be delivered by Freedom Works on 11, 18 and 25 February.
These extra sessions will be on Digital Transformation, Website Design and Development and a final networking and advice session. The workshops will include inspiring case studies from local businesses.
Bob Lanzer, county council Cabinet Member for Economy, said: “It’s been very positive to see the success of these workshops, which have been designed to respond to what businesses are telling us they need.
“These are exceptionally challenging times for everyone, including many businesses. Supporting businesses to start, survive, innovate and grow is one of the key priorities of the Economy Reset Plan 2020-2024.”
Please note: only West Sussex-based businesses are eligible for the workshops.
