NI Chamber launches new business training academy

  • Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NI Chamber) has launched a new business academy to help companies develop emerging digital skills.

    The face of business has changed dramatically over the past 12 months, and the skills needed to succeed have changed with them. The most successful businesses today are those that have developed strong digital skills, produced a viable digital strategy, and adapted to lockdowns using e-commerce.

    NI Chamber has seen the shortfall in local digital skills and is now planning to address it through a series of new courses at its new Learn Grow Excel Training Academy. The academy will be delivered in partnership with Power NI and will teach topics such as business performance, digital strategy, and e-commerce.

    The courses will be offered at a reduced price to NI Chamber members but are also open to non-members who are interested. Sessions will be delivered by local experts, including digital marketer Ciaran Connolly from Profile Tree, former broadcast journalist Sarah Travers, and Pinnacle Professional's Gareth Anderson.

    NI Chamber's Head of International and Business Support Tanya Anderson commented: "The companies who performed best last year were agile and adapted quickly to change – that focus on business improvement should be embedded in every firm now. Our Business Improvement training has been developed to help companies reduce costs and operate more efficiently by implementing LEAN practices."
