Aimed at owners and directors of businesses, finance managers, senior members of staff and marketing managers, other workshop topics include building your website, how to be found online, driving traffic to your website, negotiating successfully, innovation not invention, and planning your product pipeline, and will run at venues across the South East Midlands between September 2014 and May 2015.
