HARLOW businesses are encouraged to sign up for a free digital masterclass with Google.

Experts from Google come to Harlow College on the 3rd February from 12pm-2pm to give local businesses a masterclass in using the internet to turbo-charge their growth.

The Digital Garage on tour will be co-hosted by local MP Robert Halfon.

Local businesses can sign up to attend here.

On 3rd February the Google Digital Garage on tour will arrive in Harlow to give local businesses the chance to attend a free masterclass and learn crucial skills for the digital age.

Experts from Google will run a seminar and one-to-one mentoring sessions that offer advice and tips to local business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs on making the Internet a growth engine for their business.

The tour is part of Google’s Digital Garage project – a commitment to provide digital skills training over 200,000 small businesses across the UK as part of the programme. Government research shows that SMEs with a strong web presence grow more than twice as quickly as competitors, create more than twice as many jobs, and are 50% more likely to sell outside of their immediate region.

By encouraging and supporting a variety of businesses to use the Internet effectively, from entrepreneurs and one-man-band start-ups, to larger companies, these workshops aim to prove that, with the right training, any business can become a digital business.

Local MP Robert Halfon MP said:

‘It’s great news that Google’s Digital Garage on tour is coming to Harlow. Two of my priorities for our town are to build an even better Harlow and to champion skills and apprenticeships. This is why I’m I’ve worked hard with Google to arrange for them to visit Harlow College to provide local businesses with this amazing opportunity to learn crucial digital skills. Last year, I was able to take students from the Harlow University Technical College to Google Campus in London where they took part in Google’s Future Founders program and learnt all about entrepreneurship. Google is one of the best companies in the world, and almost everyone who uses the internet will rely on them on a daily basis. I am very grateful for their support for Harlow’s young people and Harlow’s businesses. Make sure you sign up as soon as possible so not to miss out on this amazing opportunity!’

The Digital Garage on tour has been designed to support and advise businesses regardless of their technical expertise – from complete tech novices creating their first website, through to improving an existing website and online marketing.

Alice Mansergh, Director of Google Marketing Solutions for UK and Ireland, said:

‘Google’s products and free digital training are a growth engine for people and businesses up and down the country.
