    Whether you’re just starting or are relatively active on social media, this interactive session will enhance your knowledge and confidence!

    Social media is more than a tech platform, it’s a culture, and it’s advancing faster than anything we have seen before. Keeping up with new features within established platforms and tapping into new platforms (hello TikTok!) can often be a bit of a minefield.

    This interactive session is designed to help your business thrive!

    Want to find out more about using digital in charitable services? If so, Design Hops could be for you. 

    Delivered in partnership between CAST, VONNE and Consult and Design, this free half day workshop is the first step into exploring what digital can do for you. By demystifying technology and design, and placing the focus on people not tech, the workshop and follow up support helps you start your digital journey on the right foot.

    If you’ve already started that journey but are struggling to move forwards, Design Hops provide a step by step approach to help you plan, prioritise and test.

    Join fellow business owners and entrepreneurs in an friendly, informal environment at the Border Minstrel at Newcastle Racecourse (NE3 5EJ). There’s very little structure, no lengthy presentations, the only formal part is very limited, just 60 second pitches at about halfway, the rest of the time just grab a drink and a sandwich and chat to your fellow guests.
