Free webinars to support your business from BT Skills for Tomorrow

Posted: 2nd April 2020

The spread of the coronavirus is presenting an immense challenge to small businesses everywhere.

Our partner, Small Business Britain spoke to over 1,000 businesses to understand what impact they thought the virus would have. 72% of businesses expect this to reduce their revenues by over 50% and for another 21% of businesses they expect it to reduce their revenues by over 20%.

The help being provided by Government is critical. But small businesses will need more than financial support in the coming days, weeks and months.

Being able to adapt their business model and to move their offer online is going to be absolutely essential.

That’s why small businesses need support to build their digital skills – and that’s where BT Skills for Tomorrow comes in.

We’ve created a series of webinars to help small business owners and their employees on a wide range of topics including digital marketing, using collaboration tools and how to get a business online. These have been developed by BT, our colleagues and our trusted partners including Small Business Britain and Google Digital Garage.
