How UOB can be a driving force to cultivate SMEs’ success
Through the UOB BusinessConnect community, members receive invites to exclusive industry-specific webinars held by experts, and get access to latest market trends and insights. In addition, members also get special offers from our extensive supplier network for their business needs.
As the government continues to push businesses to adopt digital initiatives, SMEs will be seeking solutions that can help them reinvent themselves in the new digital economy. To learn how they can approach this, SMEs can turn to the SME Leadership Academy . A collaboration between UOB and Google, the free training programme is specifically aimed at helping upskill local SMEs’ competence in this new economy.
Through the programme, SMEs gain knowledge in digital marketing strategies, enterprise software and tools, and receive hands-on experience in implementing data-driven business strategies.
For example, at a recently concluded webinar series catering to SMEs in the retail sector, attendees received industry-tailored recommendations and guidance on building up their digital capabilities to transform their business through the use of online tools, campaign planning with Google Ads, and increasing their online presence on the Google platform.
This has helped Sembawang Lighting House, a 23-year store retailing lighting fixtures and ceiling fans, digitalise and stand out in a competitive market.
“The SME Leadership Academy opened up a world of possibilities for us with its introduction of Google My Business. The online business tool increased the ease of sharing updates regularly and also facilitated online to offline conversions.” My Roy Chia, manager of Sembawang Lighting House.
