Lunch Seminars a Success


A series of lunch seminars organised by local companies uknetweb, Coodes and Niddocks have attracted another full house as businesses in Cornwall search to understand how they can utilise their online potential.

The specially arranged short seminars have been designed to give business owners and managers a quick burst of information covering the three major areas needed for success online.

Carried out over a lunchtime the intention is that each session allows those interested in trading online to build their knowledge without the need for whole days away from the office.

Law firm, Coodes, put forward Jonathan Wilde to give an overview of the legal documentation associated with trading online. Uknetweb MD, Toby Parkins provides insight into the role programming plays in successful e-businesses and Rob Edlin, MD of Niddocks looks at the online marketing aspects.

Each speaker takes around 15 minutes on their area of expertise, offering further one to one advice after the formal part of the session.

So far visitors to the seminars have represented a range of business interests and levels of experience, ranging from small cottage industries just starting out online right through to more experienced e-traders.


Uknetweb MD, Toby Parkins commented, “We wanted the seminar to be useful to both the new web business and those already underway. We knew from the start that the seminar would be information rich but that was always our intention. We wanted all our attendees to leave feeling they had really learnt something without the need for a whole day on each subject.”

Following the success of this event, the second so far, bookings are now open to the next event taking place on the 16th of April. Anyone interested in attending this session should contact Laraine Smailes at Coodes Truro on 01872 246211 to arrange a free place.
