Cornwall College Business (CCB) will be holding a free event at Pendennis Castle next month, explaining the benefits of training.
The seminar, ‘Survive and Thrive’, will take place on Wednesday April 29, from 1.30pm-5pm and is free to local SMEs. It will showcase performance boosting short courses, which help businesses stay ahead of the competition, develop new skills and increase customer satisfaction.
Businesses that have already completed these training courses have benefited significantly. Tulip Food Ltd, have identified savings of nearly £1 million, following a course on Lean & Business Improvement Techniques. Kimberley’s Independent Estate Agents has developed a wide range of new skills and techniques that have increased efficiency after members of staff completed the Web Design and Authoring course.
Mandy Pryor, administration and IT manager at Kimberley’s said: “The degree level short course meant I can now do things more efficiently and effectively, a few clicks to do something which might have previously taken me half a day.”
At the ‘Survive and Thrive’ event, delegates will hear from local business, D P Engineering, (Redruth), to find out how it saved money through training on one of CCB’s performance boosting degree level short courses.
The event will offer a wide range of taster sessions for delegates to choose from including: business growth; lean and business improvement techniques; conferences & events; sustainable tourism management; print design & web design; food production; finance; marketing and developing your management skills. There will also be special advice sessions for businesses and individuals to find out what training and funding is available, and the opportunity to network with other businesses.
