Velocity workshops prove it’s not who you know, it’s #WhatYouKnow

29 October 2014

Some tried and trusted sayings stand the test of time because they remain true. Others need to be adapted as we evolve.

For years people have become accustomed to the old adage that ‘it’s not what you know, it’s who you know’ and while contacts and networking remain an important part of every business toolkit, there appears to be a shift in thinking – it’s actually pretty important to know what you’re on about as well.

Velocity’s new series of FREE business workshops aim to do just that. We’re not telling any grannies how to suck eggs but we are giving SMEs across the South East Midlands the chance to brush up on their skills and find out the latest techniques and trends that could help give them the edge over their competitors.

So whether it’s a session on smashing your sales targets, bringing you up to speed on all the latest fancy gizmos in web design or learning more about the grants and loans available to help grow your business, there’s bound to be a workshop waiting with your name on it.
