West Dunbartonshire businesses will have the opportunity to tap into expert advice and guidance this month as part of Working4Business Business Week.

The event will see five days of workshops and seminars aimed at inspiring and supporting new and established retailers.

Among the activities on offer are tips for online trading, ways to improve search engine optimisation, how to use Linkedin and Facebook for business, digital marketing advice and a seminar about dealing with Brexit.

The programme – which runs from November 26 to November 30 – is taking place at venues all over West Dunbartonshire including Dumbarton, Clydebank, Vale of Leven and Loch Lomond.

Councillor Iain McLaren, Convener of Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “If you are running a business in West Dunbartonshire, new or established, you do not want to miss this. Owners are being given the chance to get guidance and support from some leading experts about things that matter to them, and things that matter to our local economy.

“There is so much going on in terms of development and investment in West Dunbartonshire, from Dumbarton town centre to Queens Quay in Clydebank. It is a very exciting time for business owners and these events can help give support and guidance when it is needed most.”

Councillor Marie McNair, Vice Convener of Infrastructure, Regeneration and Economic Development, added: “The aim of this event is to inspire and give confidence to our business owners, and ensure our high streets continue to flourish. We look forward to welcoming everyone and hope the events help them to thrive.”
