Google Digital Garage Masterclass

24 October 2018

   

Businesses in Antrim and Newtownabbey can learn about getting online and boost their digital skills for free as Google brings its Google Digital Garage, in partnership with the LEAN Business Network, to Mossley Mill on Wednesday 14 November 2018 from 5pm – 9pm.

The Google Digital Garage is a place where anyone can come and learn free digital skills to help them find a job, grow in their career, grow their confidence online, or grow a business.

Google launched the Google Digital Garage in the UK three years ago to help address this gap in opportunity and give people in the UK the skills they need, to achieve the goals they haven’t reached - yet.

In the last two years, over 200,000 people across the UK have benefitted from Google’s free face-to-face training on digital know-how.

At the evening workshop, businesses will explore how Google Analytics can help them uncover trends about their customers, including how people use their website or interact with their business online through Know your Business with Data.  Businesses will then have the opportunity to choose one of two workshops covering either Google Analytics or Google Maps for Business.

The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Paul Michael commented: “Google Digital Garage visiting Antrim and Newtownabbey is a great opportunity for local businesses to gain new skills and knowledge and see how they can reach more customers and increase their business potential.  It will be a pleasure for me to attend this prestigious event and welcome the many businesses it will bring to our Borough.”

Ronan Harris, Google UK & Ireland Managing Director, said: 'In the digital age, a basic understanding of how the online world works is useful and when it comes to business, it’s essential. We are delighted to bring the Google Digital Garage to Antrim and Newtownabbey and ensure everyone has access to free digital skills workshops. We hope you'll pop in and get the skills you need to become more confident online, grow your business and maybe even launch the next big idea."
