Companies in Bedfordshire have been invited to take part in a series of free workshops aimed at bringing them up to speed with all the internet has to offer.

The sessions are being staged by Velocity, the business support service from the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) and will take place over the next three months.

Businesses can learn more about how to use social networks such as LinkedIn, YouTube and Google+ and how to make the most of their websites to help attract new customers.

Daniel Mouawad, chief executive of Velocity, said: “These workshops are designed to help companies get up to speed with what’s happening online and see how they can harness the power of the internet to grow the digital side of their business.

“By making the most of the digital tools available, it’s possible to revolutionise the way you do business, saving you time and money and helping you to grow and potentially create new jobs.”

The workshops, delivered by South East Midlands social media experts Green Umbrella, will be held at Kings House in Ampthill Road, Bedford, with the first sessions being held on Thursday, January 29. For more details, and to sign up for free, visit or call 0300 01234 35.
