These sessions are about the power of the internet to transform the way we do business.
This is particularly important for rural communities, where poor existing connectivity is limiting business activity and growth. The planned introduction of Superfast Broadband in 2013 will open up new opportunities for these areas.
Our free training sessions will ensure participants understand the range of potential uses of the internet and how it can directly benefit their business. They can practice using their newly developed skills and knowledge; access new and free resources to enable them to further develop their knowledge, interest and skills; and understand how they might secure, and benefit from, Superfast Broadband.
The programme is divided into two, 3 hour sessions and will be offered at a range of locations and dates throughout Lincolnshire.
