Digital Adviser Advice

A specialist Digital Adviser is available to help your business with one on one, tailored advice.

Following a diagnostic review of your business, they will help you to create an action plan to pinpoint which digital capabilities could improve your business processes and bottom line, and help you get up and running.

The Growth Hub will also soon be running a programme of digitally focussed, free training workshop sessions to help you make the most of the support from the project.
