In 2018, Enterprise Nation is partnering with Amazon to deliver three Amazon Academy events throughout the UK. The free events will offer free practical advice to SMEs to help them grow their export sales and succeed in the digital economy. The events will take place in Glasgow, Newcastle and Cardiff throughout the year.
Registration is now open for the first Academy in Glasgow on 17 April and you can register your interest below for the Amazon Academy Newcastle in June and Amazon Academy Cardiff in September. We will notify you when the dates for these events have been announced.
As a small business owner (or someone thinking of starting your own business), you will be able to learn how to use the power of the internet and technology to grow your company, boost export sales and improve the customer experience. SMEs ranging from e-commerce businesses, web developers and new start-ups will be in attendance to hear from a range of speakers who will provide ‘how to’ advice and insights, as well as discussing some of the broader issues facing businesses today.
In the morning, you'll be able to find out how you can make the most of the digital opportunity as a small business, with insight from Amazon, Enterprise Nation, and other independent experts and successful entrepreneurs.
Following a networking lunch, in the afternoon session attendees will be given practical advice on how to capitalise on Amazon’s global digital and physical products and services to boost your revenue, improve productivity, and reach customers globally. These include:
