I’m a keen advocate of digital fluency – being competent to work with a range of digital media to achieve a specific outcome. It’s important for everyone in business these days to know how to use the technology out there to their advantage. One new government initiative is the Digital Enterprise which has been set up to help start-ups do exactly this. If you’ve never heard of them and want to find out more, visit https://www.digitalenterprise.co.uk/
There are a wealth of workshops being held throughout the year under the Digital Knowledge Exchange Programme which you can attend for free, if you fit the criteria set out by the government.
I have been approached by the Digital Enterprise to act as Digital Champion (a grand name for a mentor) and am really looking forward to working with small business owners who might need my help to decide which technologies they should use and how.
