Businesses will be shown how they can grow through embracing digital technology, at a special conference to be held at the Royal Cornwall Showground next month.

Superfast Business Cornwall’s fully-funded Tech for Growth event at The Pavilion Centre, on December 1, is part of a new service to help SMEs boost their competitiveness through increased understanding and exploitation of digital technology.

Keynote speakers for the event will include Jon Hogg, chief marketing officer at blur Group, who will look at the concrete business benefits of weaving technology into business processes and Nick Orme, CEO at ITEC, a managed service company which supplies copiers, printers and MFDs.

There will also be workshops run by Josh Hoole from Superfast Business Cornwall covering how to exploit digital technologies for productivity and growth, while Agile Business Coach Belinda Waldock will look at how an Agile approach can help sustain growth during periods of technological change within a business.

Sebeail Fowell, programme and partnership manager for the project, said: “Cornwall is the best connected rural area in Europe for superfast broadband so we want to run an event to capitalise on this roll out which will focus on the practical business benefits of superfast broadband and how businesses can best use digital technology to grow and remain competitive in 2017.”
