This week is Global Enterprise Week and, as part of that, Google has been promoting it's Getting British Business Online (GBBO) initiative. It held 25 simultaneous "business breakfasts" across the UK this morning, including one in Glasgow, which I attended.
GBBO is a fantastic opportunity for small businesses to establish a web presence - for free and in 20 minutes. David MacMurtrie, of Google, led the event. He emphasised the phenomenal growth of the Internet and how vital it is for all Scottish businesses to be online.
SQA is one of a small number of UK awarding bodies that is supporting GBBO by providing a qualification to anyone who gets involved in the initiative and wants to develop their knowledge of e-commerce. Our qualification - NPA in Doing Business Online [PDF] - is available now. Contact Hilary for more information.
