The latest Sheffield City Region (SCR) masterclasses aimed at increasing expertise across South Yorkshire are set to take place in December.

The two masterclasses, organised by the SCR’s Growth Hub, will take place in December, focusing on social media and International Organisation for Standardisation respectively.

David Grimes, Head of the Sheffield City Region Growth Hub, said: “The Growth Hub is dedicated to helping businesses to grow, improve and succeed and these masterclasses will broaden expertise and knowledge amongst the attendees.

“Each session will be led by an industry expert who will cut through the jargon and equip delegates with vital skills and, importantly, confidence in the field.”

The ISO De-mystified masterclass, hosted at Fusion@Magna in Rotherham on 3 December, will focus on clearly explaining why International Organisation for Standardisation is important to businesses and is a hallmark of quality. The masterclass will also help businesses establish if ISOs are right for them, leading to growth through internal improvement and external reputation.

On 10 December, attendees of the Fundamentals of Social Media Marketing class will learn how social media can support and benefit businesses; from using it as a customer-services channel, to ensuring it is an important outlet for self-promotion.

The free programme continues with more classes in the New Year aimed at businesses who are growing but need support, with attendees encouraged to sign up for as many masterclasses as relevant to their business.

The Sheffield City Region Growth Hub exists to help businesses find the best possible business support to grow.

The Growth Hub acts as a gateway so that businesses can access specialists in any field of business development required, including innovation, exporting, accessing finance or training.

The service is designed to enable businesses across the Sheffield City Region to get the support they need to thrive.
