Welcome to the Amazon Academy Newcastle
Following the success of the Amazon Academy events throughout the UK in 2017, the second Amazon Academy of 2018 will take place in Newcastle. The Amazon Academy will provide free advice and practical support to help SMEs succeed in the digital economy. The event is open to businesses of all sizes and is being run in conjunction with Enterprise Nation.
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 startups 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.
What happens on the day?
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.
