Are you going to the Tendring Business Showcase on 14th May?

Tendring Business Showcase will be held on May 14, from 10am to 7pm, at the Princes Theatre, Town Hall, in Station Road.

There will be networking events and seminars, as well as exhibition stands from local businesses, community groups and not-for-profit enterprises.

I ( +LGX Marketing, Training & Events ) have a stand, and I will also be one of the Speakers, sharing some of my clients marketing success stories.

We'll be hosting the Tendring Business Meetup on the day at 1pm, and there will be around 25 local businesses/organisations exhibiting.

It will be a great opportunity to meet local business people, catch up with existing contacts and see what's on offer from local businesses.

If you've registered to go, please let me know, it would be great to see you on the day.

Cheers.
The Gazette is backing a major event in Clacton showcasing the district’s businesses.

£16,000 Funding for Essex Biz's Reserved so far this week - £30k Target by end of play tomorrow.

http://www.lgx.im/essex/  Do you know anyone who might be eligible to apply?...

More details below about the Digital Skills for Growth Funding:

NOTE: These are the sectors being awarded: Advanced Manufacturing & Electronics, Care, Construction, Creative, Health, IT & Technology and Logistics. (deadline for applications is Fri 28th Nov.).

Are you recruiting and would like up to £4,000 for digital technology training?

Digital Skills for Growth is an Essex Employment and Skills Board programme administered by Essex County Council that offers you up to £4,000 towards training costs when you recruit someone to your business.

The position recruited, needs to be focused on the use of digital technology (e.g. websites, media production, computer programming, digital marketing, computer design) but it is fine for the person to spend some of their time on non-digital areas too as part of their role.

Up to £4,000 is available to train the person in skills related to the use of digital technology. We contribute up to 70% (50% if the business has more than 250 employees) of the cost of training and you just need to contribute the remaining funding.

The programme was previously targeted at young people but we have now extended this so that you can recruit candidates of any age and still benefit from the funding.

Who can I recruit?

There are several situations where you can access the funding:

You can bring someone new into your business as an external appointment

You can appoint someone from within your business – providing they are moving into a new position.

You can offer a new contract to someone in the last 3 months of an existing fixed term contract within your business to keep them in post (for example, if an apprentice is in the last three months of their apprenticeship)

You can apply for support for recruiting as many people as your business needs.

All positions recruited, must be at least 12 months in duration. The person recruited cannot be completing an apprenticeship that you receive public funding for at the same time as being supported by Digital Skills for Growth.

What training courses can be funded?

We can help you identify training courses but you get to choose whichever training courses will work best for your business – the courses just need to be at a reasonably advanced level as we can’t fund introductory level skills.

You can choose to use whichever training provider you would prefer as well. Although training must start by the end of March 2015, it can continue through until March 2016.Our definition of ‘digital technology’ is very broad and could be:

computer design
website development
IT project management
media production
digital marketing
social media
software development
…and lots more

More information at: http://www.lgx.im/essex/

I have helped 2 Essex businesses 'reserve' £16,000 funding for digital skills training so far this week and we have several more applications going in today and tomorrow.

Funding can be spent on a digital skills course and training provider of your choice!

If you have any questions please let me know

Great news, #Essex  based +Able Canopies have just received a provisional offer of support from the Digital Skills for Growth Programme, £12,000.00 has been reserved to train people they recruit to the use of digital technology.
We have seen some excellent ‘business growth’ initiatives over the years, to help Essex based businesses, but this is one the most exciting opportunities...

Have you used Growth Vouchers or are you a supplier?

I will be registering to become a 'Growth Vouchers' strategic advisor in the next couple of weeks and wondered if you had used Growth Vouchers in the past or whether you are registered as an advisor to accept GV's?

If you haven't seen these before, basically... if your business is actively trading in England then you could be eligible to receive up to £2k match funding to invest in strategic business, including:

Improving leadership & management skills
Making the most of digital technology
Marketing, attracting & keeping customers
Raising finance & managing cash flow
Recruiting & developing your staff

More info at: http://www.cavendishconsortium.co.uk/gv 

Have you heard of GV's, used them for advice or do you accept them?

If so, what do you think?

Usually good value for money here, but the Handmade Chicken & Bacon Caesar Wrap I just bought was the WORST EVER, it contained very little Chicken or Bacon, and mostly consisted of Tortilla Wrap.
