Technology giant Google has hosted a digital training masterclass at the University of Greenwich.

This was the second time the tech company has held an event at Greenwich, with over 100 students enjoying two Digital Garage on Tour sessions.

Google's expert, Ade Bamgbala, offered tips on how to build a business's online profile, including the use of search optimisation. There was a focus on how non-profit organisations can make the most of their online presence. There were also tips on building effective websites, including making them mobile friendly, and analysing data.

Mevan Dias a recent Greenwich graduate after completing an MBA in International Business, now runs Imagiom, a post-production image company. He says: "It was a good talk and I really enjoyed it. There were some great tips on how to build an online presence, which was especially useful for me as I try to grow my own business.

The event was hosted by the i3 Centre, part of the university's Business School. Sveta Odaryuk, Project Officer, adds: "It was great to have Google return to Greenwich. Our students enjoyed some good advice and asked some interesting questions. Everyone was able to take a lot away from this afternoon and they will be able to apply the skills learned."
