You’ve heard of ChatGPT, but do you really understand how it can help your business? This session will explore how to create text – from social media updates and blogs, to web content, powerpoints and job adverts. Businesses need to write, and we’ll show you how the AI can help.

Having played with the tools, our final session will help you join the dots, and use them all to help develop and grow your business. From writing business plans, to monthly social media planning. From creating new branding, to becoming a spreadsheet expert. AI can help with strategic business requirements or day to day activities.
