This event is part of the Cornwall Business Festival and is designed to introduce non-tech businesses to modern methods of improving business through the use of technology.
Over the course of the day, you’ll get to hear from local industry leaders and discover how Artificial Intelligence, digital marketing and choosing the correct software product can propel your business forward to future success. You can expect to walk away with actionable insights, a head full of ideas and a pocket full of new contacts. More details about the conference and its sessions will be announced in the coming weeks.
This event will raise awareness and promote the upcoming Digital Transformation project, developed by local businesses for local businesses. Delivered by The Cornwall College Group in conjunction with their strategic partner, Software Cornwall, the project will provide business support to SMEs in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, aiming to increase productivity and competitiveness.
