Following a successful pilot at the centre, the workshops will now be run regularly every Tuesday and Thursday, with business owners able to access the support free of charge as and when they need it. ICE member Steve Morgan, of Morgan Online Marketing, said;

“I found the session with Greenaway Scott really useful. We covered a wide range of topics, and they couldn’t have been more supportive. It’s great to be able to bounce ideas and challenges off experts of such a high calibre, and I would certainly recommend others take the time to sit down and chat with them!”
