There is just one day left until the return of Business Lincolnshire’s annual #GoDigital Conference.
The first time the event will take place virtually, this year’s theme is “Get Future Ready, Survive and Thrive,” and will focus on helping businesses to get back on track after COVID-19.
Beginning at 8:30am this Thursday (26th November) and running until 1:30pm, attendees will be treated to an exciting line-up of expert talks, riveting panel discussions and specialist-led workshops.
There will also be a funding expo especially for SMEs, where Greater Lincolnshire businesses can discover the many support schemes available to them.
COVID-19 has hastened the shift to digital, with businesses embracing technology just to survive in recent months. From communicating with customers to improving productivity, digital has been a lifeline for businesses during the pandemic.
However, technology can also help SMEs to come out of COVID-19 stronger than ever, with workshops focusing on how businesses can use digital to adapt to this new world of work.
No one knows this better than this year’s keynote speaker, Practical Futurist and former IBM Global Managing Partner Andrew Grill. In his talk ‘Workplace of the Future,’ Andrew will share insights into how the workplace is evolving, and how your business can use these changes to your advantage.
Other tech experts appearing at #GoDigital20 include Daniel Westlake – Managing Director of Lincoln-based web design agency Cursor – who will be introducing businesses to free and low-cost tools to help them work smarter, and Prabhat Shah, Founder of Online Seller UK, who will be sharing his tips and tricks to help SMEs successfully sell online.
Councillor Colin Davie, Executive Councillor for Economy and Place, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work, both now and in the future. But it also provides opportunities for businesses to grow and prosper.
“From home-working to communicating urgent updates via social media, digital has been crucial to the survival of businesses during COVID-19. But technology cannot only help businesses to survive during this difficult time, but thrive.
“The #GoDigital20 conference has everything they need to adapt to this new world.”
