Firms to be given Business Boost thanks to new online platform

Published: March 25th, 2022

A brand new programme is being launched to give Shropshire businesses a major boost as the country emerges from the pandemic.

A range of webinars, workshops and podcasts have been collated by Shropshire Council for the new Business Boost programme – an online suite designed to help firms learn, develop and support the economy.

The programme – supported by the Marches Growth Hub and Invest in Shropshire – will allow all businesses to access a range of free business workshops and webinars at a time to suit them.

Ed Potter, Shropshire Council’s Deputy Leader, and Cabinet member for economic growth, regeneration and planning, said: “We are committed to helping businesses in Shropshire thrive and this programme will offer a real boost to all.

“A suite of webinars is being developed to aid businesses with their learning and development. This follows feedback from the retail and tourism sectors, and will allow the businesses to access a series of webinars covering different business disciplines at the time and place of their choice, and not when we are running them in real time.

“This will be launched on Thursday 31 March 2022 and will be a lasting legacy for the Shropshire Council Economic Recovery Fund.”

There are currently around 70 webinars available for access, covering everything from start-up to growth, health and wellbeing to marketing and much more.

It includes short workshops up to 30 minutes long to keep learning focused and will be available for two years through the Invest in Shropshire website.

It has been put together by Shrewsbury-based video, marketing and design company Yarrington, which built the online platform and managed all the recordings.
