Workshops

Our workshops are tailored to the needs of our audiences. We provide practical tools and approaches to support organisations to grow in their capacity to manage their digital approaches. We currently work in partnership with Voscur, SCVO and The University of Bath to deliver our workshops to a diverse audience of traditional companies and not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises and charities. We can also tailor our workshops to deliver within an organisation.

The main outcome of this session is to support you to understand more about how you can be responsible for data management and build stronger relationships with your clients.
