Rapp UK is aiming to show International Women’s Day is not the only time for inspiration by offering female entrepreneurs the learning and support of its experts to help sharpen skills needed to energise and grow their businesses.
Ten female-run small businesses have been invited in to Rapp UK for PowerHouse – a series of workshops covering disciplines such as social media, SEO, brand tone of voice, digital presence and UX.
The PowerHouse initiative has been designed not as a one-off but as an event that will be repeatable throughout the year. The aim of the workshops, run by Rapp UK experts, is to educate, inspire and support women starting their journey in business.
Participating businesses in the inaugural PowerHouse range from home-styling, wedding photography, professional coaching and coffee production to architecture.
Rapp UK chief executive Chris Freeland said: “We are committed to making a real difference to women in business, not just on International Women’s Day but well into the future. This is why we’ve created PowerHouse – an event which is easily replicated throughout the year and designed for lasting impact on the businesses we work with.
“There are many talented women who are experts in what they do, but who might be struggling to maximise their business’s potential, or failing to use digital marketing tools to their advantage. We can hopefully make a tangible difference and the future success of their ventures.”
