On the first Thursday of every month Sussex Innovation Croydon runs a free 1-2-1 clinic for growing businesses. In partnership with a number of trusted organisations including Natwest & Barclays. Sussex Innovation Croydon offers informative presentations to help businesses of all sizes grow.
This Month's presentation was based around Fraud, Scams & How to protect your self and your business. The morning started with a buffet breakfast, giving all attendees an opportunity to socialise and have something to eat and drink.
Once all seated, Ross Martin - Barclays Digital Eagles Content Leader & Claudia Ricci - Neighbourhood Watch Association in addition to representative from Trading Standards & the Police gave very informative talks on how to stay safe online as well as at home.
The highlight of the talks was when we learned The Mayor of Croydon had also experienced what many people are dealing with.
Finance Thursday is held on the first Thursday of each month, every session is free. Running between 9am - 12pm, with speakers staying longer for additional questions. Tickets are booked via Eventbrite but keep an eye out on the Sussex Innovation's events page for future dates.
