Free support for businesses

FREE support is being offered to North East businesses through a Morpeth-based online hub.

BizVision has set up a FreeLearn Supplier Training hub to help local businesses improve their competitiveness and hold their own when bidding for contracts alongside more experienced suppliers.

The site offers a collection of learning videos and resources, a blog and a virtual coaching service with a bank of experts providing advice.

Following a simple and free membership sign-up, people can access a range of sections, including bid writing, procurement, supply chain and export.

The hub is part of the company’s wider SpotLearn initiative.

BizVision’s Malcolm Gallagher said: “In the past five years over 7,000 UK businesses, many across the north east, have been to the live events I have presented for HM Revenue and Customs, Business Link and chambers. Now they can gain from much more than I could present at a seminar and do it in their own time, anywhere and all for free.”
