Vodafone pilots digital skills workshops for small businesses

Workshop series will launch in London and Leeds to help small firms improve their online presence

Vodafone UK has announced a pilot workshop series to help small and medium businesses “do more” with their online presence.

The digital skills workshops will run in Leeds today and in London on July 21 and July 22 and aim to help small firms compete with larger players in the market.

Ran in partnership with digital training company Freeformers, the programme will provide tips on building a website, optimising for mobile, using social media, processing online payments and advice for cybersecurity.

Should the trial series go well, Vodafone has said that it will be “looking at the broader opportunities to support UK small and medium enterprises”.

Jonathan Kini, Vodafone UK head of SME business, commented: “ Customers want to be able to engage with businesses through multiple channels and to receive fast, responsive and quality customer service 24/7.

“Therefore small and medium enterprises need to adapt and be ready to take advantage of the online opportunities and benefits of being a digital business and not risk losing out by falling behind the digital curve.”
