Businesses and the economy have certainly been through the wringer in 2020 resulting in the worst recession on record and sadly we are unlikely to be fully out the other side for some time to come.

As we embark into 2021 that resilience will, unfortunately, be tested further. Your goal is to make sure your business is not in the potentially high percentage that may fail over the next 12 months.

So please do join us for an interactive online learning session to discover what you need to know to re-build your business resilience in 2021.

In the session we will cover:

- What business resilience means and what it entails

- The six key areas you can actively do something about to build resilience into your business, including;

- Strategy

- Marketing

- Sales

- Cost optimisation

- Organisation design

- Governance (getting a grip)


At the end of the session, you will have the opportunity to discuss topical issues with other participants, network to grow your contact and potential customer base. There will also be the opportunity to follow up the session with a FREE 1:1 business review with one of our skilled Business Advisors who will provide specific recommendations on overcoming your specific pain points and how you can take your business forward.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Basics of search engine optimisation for small businesses

Basics of search engine optimisation for small businesses

Tuesday 23rd February 2021

From 15:00, to 16:00

Venue: online webinar


Book your place on this training webinar to learn more about the basics of search engine optimisation (SEO) for small businesses.

Most small businesses are approached regularly by companies offering to help you appear higher in Google’s search results. Often they present SEO as a highly complex, technical process that requires a great deal of specialist knowledge, but in fact there are simple steps you can take to significantly improve the search ranking of your site yourself. Even if you decide not to do the work yourself, it’s useful to have an understanding of how SEO works when you’re dealing with SEO companies.
