The Amazon Academy programme is a series of free events to help small businesses succeed in the digital economy. Since 2016, more than 3,000 SMEs have attended Amazon Academies across the UK to learn how to scale their business and the next event is Amazon Academy Doncaster 2020.
As a small business owner (or someone thinking of starting your own business), you will learn how to use the power of the internet and technology to boost productivity, grow your export sales and build your brand (if a brand owner). You will be able to hear from a range of Amazon speakers who will provide advice and insights on growing your sales on Amazon, as well as a selection of independent experts who can advise on the broader issues facing businesses today. Attendees will also have the chance to go behind the scenes of Amazon’s fulfilment centre during the day.
