Google is coming to Sudbury as part of its Grow with Google initiative to help create economic opportunity in communities across Canada.
Google will host a free, one-day event at Science North on April 12 to help small business owners, entrepreneurs, students and skill seekers improve their digital skills. The workshops will run between 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
“Sudbury has always been home to a distinct entrepreneurial drive thanks to its rich history of mining and technological advancements in the industry,” said Aaron Brindle, Grow with Google spokesperson. “By bringing the Grow with Google tour to this community, we are excited to help an already skilled workforce meet the needs of today’s evolving economy.”
Google staff will lead hands-on workshops that will teach attendees valuable digital skills including online marketing, using data and analytics to drive business growth, and how to get a business on Google Search and Maps. Attendees can also sign up onsite for one-on-one training with Google staff and learn more about Google’s free products for skill seekers and small businesses.
“We are so thrilled to welcome the Grow with Google tour to Greater Sudbury in the coming weeks,” said Mayor Brian Bigger. “The day-long event will provide small business owners and individuals with hands-on digital skills training that will help them thrive and grow in today’s economy.”
Google launched Grow with Google in September of 2018 and has visited six communities across Canada to date. The initiative aims to create opportunities for everyone by bringing digital skills training, workshops and free tools to communities across the country.
