News | Round-up March 20

All Linked together

Us Teessiders always pull together and COVID-19 hasn’t changed that.

Sharon Lane, Managing Director of Tees Components, has set up a LinkedIn group for Teesside businesses to keep us all connected at a challenging time.

COVID-19 on Teesside -SME Business Continuity has been set up as a place for Teesside based SME businesses to support each other.

Usually everyone can meet at networking events and for coffees but with that taken away and when we’re needing to support each other now more than ever, the group is as a place for sharing knowledge and advice, whatever industry you’re working in.

The wonderful webinar

Expos, conferences and networking events across the world have been cancelled and postponed over the last few weeks but we’re thrilled to see webinars taking their place.

The Design Business Association is holding a webinar today (20 March) at 1pm on Your Agency and Coronavirus with creative advisor David C. Baker. It’s free to register, you don’t have to be a member and it’s great for owners and managers of design agencies.

The Drum’s Digital Transformation Festival is also taking place from now until the 30 April. Bringing you panelsessions, talks and roundtables with insights from the world’s biggest brands and speakers.

Webinars will host speakers from BBC News, Adobe and LinkedIn to name just a few.

Let us know if you’re taking part in any other webinars, we’d love to share them on @DigitalTeesside.

Yoga is the most downloaded health and fitness app in the app story alongside meditation apps Headspaceand Calm.

It’s a very challenging and stressful time so it’s more important now than ever to make sure you take some time for yourself.
