Digital transformation is about harnessing new technologies to improve outcomes for your business. In response to the fact that many Irish business owners feel ill-prepared to navigate the big technology changes coming their way Local Enterprise Office Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown has developed a practical 4 week programme to help small business owners get the best from the web. Through a short series of high impact workshops delivered by leading innovation practitioner Eoin Costello participants will experiment with, and implement, digital tools to better engage customers, empower employees and optimise operations.

The programme is very relevant to the immediate needs of small business owner/managers that want to leverage the web. Each participant will finish the programme with a digital transformation plan to put their business in a strong position to maximise sales from the digital channel while leveraging web based platforms to minimise their operational costs.

The programme has been carefully created to specifically support the growth and sustainability of traditional businesses such as retailers, professional service providers (accountants, lawyers, brokers etc), pubs, coffee shops, tourism companies etc.

To maximise learning outcomes for participants places are limited to 15 people so sign up today.

Delivery Methodology

This programme will include a combination of short presentations integrated with group work and individual tasks online with a strong emphasis on practical application throughout. Participants will get the opportunity to practice their skills during the programme in a way that will allow you to immediately apply the topics covered in your businesses. This will be supported by relevant printed materials that participants will receive.

Please note, as this is a practical workshop, participants are required to bring their own laptop (that can connect to WiFi).
