Digital Women – Digital Skills Summit

Digital Women – Digital Skills Summit

At the start of the year, I always have a good think about what I want to achieve during the year. This year, I wanted to get started on hosting workshops with the business – and because of coronavirus we did this, albeit it virtually. They’ve been super popular and something we’re very keen to continue doing!

A much longer term plan would have been to speak at an event, so it certainly wasn’t something I was expecting for June 2020 at all! However, with coronavirus locking us all down, I’ve been doing a lot of networking online and wowee, has it paid off!

I’ve written a blog about the importance of networking before, and especially for those of us who are from more rural areas. I’d never have been able to go to as many events as I have during lockdown, because everything has been virtual – and that includes the hour long networking events here, there and everywhere!

All of this networking led me to becoming a founding member of the new Digital Women membership platform (which if you’re not part of, I highly, highly recommend you look at). This then led to being asked (or told, whichever way you look at it) to speak at the next digital skills summit that Digital Women have been arranging during lockdown!

FANTASTIC! I actually did a few happy dances at the thought! Then it was a case of figuring out what to talk about. With the Gwe Cambrian Web, our bread and butter is websites, but we’ve also moved hugely into social media. Thinking cap on, and knowing there would be a huge range of other amazing speakers, I decided to stick to the websites as a topic.

So, why not sign up to my talk at the Digital Skills Summit on June 30th, – level up your website. It’s a completely FREE event, with 22 speakers from 10am to 4pm, covering such a huge range of digital skills.

You may have spotted the webinar blog post earlier in the year – and this has been something really popular for us. We’ve been as a company providing free webinars on a weekly basis in Welsh and English – about websites, social media, platforms in particular… it’s been really enjoyable and I’ve loved the buzz from the webinars, chatting to loads of different people and businesses across Wales and further afield!

So, then I thought why not just offer a free, informal , 45 minute “consultation” about anything digital marketing or websites. So if you’re wanting a natter about your website or social media, digital marketing strategies or just small business in general – get in touch and book today.

I’ve already worked with companies like Home Start Cymru on this – just chatting away on how best to use social media in general. It’s surprising how much you can fit into 45 minutes, and I’m always happy to help where I can!
