D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership consultation


Businesses and others are being given the opportunity to shape the future of an area with an economic output worth over £45billion.

Four free public events will be staged by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, to consult businesses and other organisations on how they think the LEP area’s economy should develop in the next decade up to 2030.

Proposals for a refreshed Strategic Economic Plan, to steer the D2N2 area’s economy up to 2030, are now in place; but the LEP is looking to businesses and other organisations’ representatives to attend consultation events in November, to give their views and add to those ideas.

Digital PR for Link Building


25 D2N2 Growth ERDF DDDC and Hallam 500 wide

9.00 - 12.30, 6th November, Cromford

Digital PR increases awareness of your business and helps you acquire links from websites to your own. These links not only generate traffic as users discover your website through them, but are one of the most important ranking factors in the algorithms used by search engines to determine if you are a relevant website for a user’s search query.

This “Digital PR for Link Building” workshop will give you the confidence and skills you need to make your own effective digital PR strategy. It will provide you with an understanding of the importance of digital PR, the impact on your website of good and bad quality links and the tools you’ll need to improve your success.
