A series of online workshops aims to give West Sussex small businesses a robust toolkit to survive – and hopefully grow - in 2021.
The West Sussex Recover & Rise in 2021 programme is a series of free workshops, supported by West Sussex County Council and run by Creative Bloom, Shake It Up Creative and Rume2.
Topics covered include goal setting and business planning, plus critical digital skills like social media, Google Analytics and Search Engine Optimisation.
Creative Bloom, Shake It Up Creative and Rume2 all have significant experience in helping to develop local businesses.
Bob Lanzer, county council Cabinet Member for Economy, said: “The county council recognises that these are unprecedented times for everyone - they are exceptionally challenging for many businesses and we are committed to doing what we can to support them.
“The online workshops have been designed to respond to what businesses are telling us they need.”
Please note: only West Sussex-based businesses are eligible for the workshops.
