Havant and East Hampshire

Havant and East Hampshire Business Support Hub

Digital Islands worked with the District councils to create a small programme of business support for local businesses across Havant and East Hampshire, supported through the Future High Streets Fund. 

The online Hub provided business owners with access to a series of video based learning modules, with a strong focus on helping retail and hospitality businesses to improve their marketing and customer experience capabilities.  

In addition Digital Islands provided one to one advice, ran two series of webinars, drop-in advice clinics and ask the expert events for business owners, as well as regular online networking events.
