Google to host Lincolnshire workshop offering free advice on digital skills

Google will bring its Google Digital Garage to Brigg in Lincolnshire tomorrow, offering local people free advice and coaching on digital skills to help grow their business, career and confidence.

The Google Digital Garage will be at the The Angel Suite, Market Place, Brigg on Friday, October, from 10am-4pm.

Visitors can either book in advance or simply drop by for on-the-spot help.

The bespoke training courses offered in Brigg on October 12 will include:

  • Building a digital marketing plan
  • Social media strategy
  • How to make your business more visible online
  • An introduction to digital advertising.

Free face-to-face coaching on a 1:1 basis will also be offered for people with any level of experience; from advice on taking the first steps online, to building a digital CV and your personal brand online.

Ronan Harris, Managing Director Google UK, said: “In the digital age, a basic understanding of how the online world works is useful and when it comes to business, it’s essential. We are delighted to bring the Google Digital Garage to Brigg in Lincolnshire to ensure everyone has access to free digital skills workshops and one-to-one coaching.

“We want to give businesses in Brigg the digital skills they need to make the most of new technologies to level the playing field against their competition, reach new customers beyond their local area and grow, whilst ensuring they remain at the heart of the local community.”

Andrew Percy, MP for Brigg and Goole, said: “I am incredibly grateful to Google for bringing their Digital Garage to my constituency. This is a fantastic project which will provide valuable advice and skills to businesses and start-ups in the local area. Moreover, this initiative is particularly welcome in more rural market towns like Brigg, where opportunities such as these are not often available.

“Once again, I am delighted that the Google Digital Garage is coming to my constituency to help local businesses take advantage of the new and exciting opportunities that digital technology brings.”
