Join Hundreds of West Sussex Businesses Learning to Grow Digitally

Grow Digital West Sussex, which will be delivered between September 2023 and March 2024, with four series each comprising six events across the county, will feature workshops on topics including customer journey, using AI to manage costs and forecasts and practical skills for building an online presence.

Companies that attend in-person will later be able to access valuable one-to-one mentoring from experienced business mentors.

Grow Digital West Sussex is jointly funded by West Sussex County Council and the district and borough councils in the county including Mid Sussex. It is being delivered by experienced local companies Freedom Works, Wired Sussex, Creative Bloom and Shake It Up Creative.

Cllr Steve Waight, the County Council's Cabinet Member for Support Services and Economic Development, said: "Grow Digital West Sussex gives small businesses the digital know-how to tackle key challenges like increasing their productivity, working smarter and finding new customers. I'm sure our businesses will want to take advantage of this excellent, free, locally delivered growth support.

"The County Council is committed to supporting the growth of our businesses across the whole county: a sustainable and prosperous economy is one of the priorities in Our Council Plan."

Jon Trigg, the Founder and MD of lead delivery partner Freedom Works, said: "What businesses really want is practical support they can implement easily, and that is what Grow Digital West Sussex offers, as well as the opportunity for business owners and leaders to network with like-minded souls.

"Furthermore, the ongoing support through the programme's mentorship scheme with local digital growth experts, who understand the landscape and challenges, will have a huge impact in ensuring the knowledge and support gets put to practical benefit."

Businesses based in West Sussex can find more details and book places via Eventbrite.
