All aboard Google's digital training bus

A double-decker Google Bus made a very welcome stop in Enfield Town, offering free advice and training sessions in all things digital.

Enfield was treated to a visit from the Google Digital Garage initiative, where trained specialists gave sessions on launching a business online, marketing, how to use social media platforms, online security and other advice on helping a business flourish online.

The idea of Google Digital Garage is to improve the digital capabilities of businesses and individuals with free skills training and coaching, and to support the ambitious growth of firms of all sizes. The event was open to everyone – from school-leavers to silver surfers and entrepreneurs of all ages.

Enfield Council’s Leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan and Enfield Council’s Director of Property and Economy, Mark Bradbury, hopped on the bus to learn how the Digital Garage can benefit Enfield’s businesses.

Cllr Caliskan said: “Enfield Council is committed to supporting our town centres, businesses and individuals to create vibrant places to live and work. We also want to help develop a competitive local economy. If businesses can boost their online presence, they will get more customers and clients through the door which is why Google’s training has been invaluable. I look forward to further similar events with Google and other partners that will help people’s online skills grow and to help place Enfield’s businesses firmly on the digital map.”
