Be the Business is partnering with Facebook to host an online event providing digital training for SMEs.

Taking place on September 9, the event will feature leading south west firms including This Mum Runs, Red & Ginger, The Watergate Bay Hotel and Inn Cornwall Limited.

The event aims to help businesses boost their digital skills, provide access to essential resources and get ongoing support to recover and grow.

Attendees will also receive training from Be the Business and Facebook on using Instagram for business, business finances and innovating your business model.

Be the Business chairman, Sir Charlie Mayfield, said: “It’s a tragedy that it’s taken a global pandemic to do it, but we are seeing a huge drive for efficiency, interest in technology and innovation from UK businesses.

“Our event in the south west will capitalise on that ambition, providing guidance and resources to the firms who need it most. Small businesses will be at the heart of the UK’s economic recovery, and Be the Business, alongside our partner Facebook, is committed to helping them succeed.”
