With hospitality and tourism businesses making final preparations towards re-opening and the North East reading itself for a boom in staycations in 2021, NBSL are urging businesses to take advantage of the latest skills sessions now available as part of NBSL’s Better Business Skills programme.

With Better Business Skills launching its Spring programme on Wednesday 22 April, the Spring series of sessions is packed with themes around how to enhance the customer experience, maximise sales with improved marketing techniques  – great timing as businesses start to reopen over the next month.

Throughout this pandemic our customers have been at the heart of our operations and it’s great to see that we’ve been recognised through our Customer First accreditation again.

With COVID continuing to dominate business priorities, NBSL have announced their 2021 programme to help support businesses deal with the ever-changing economic landscape.
