The aim of the Connected Business conference is to help Barnsley businesses take advantage of digital and online opportunites.

Heading the exciting line-up of speakers at the free event is the BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones (pictured below). He will talk about some of the latest online trends and digital innovations that he has been reporting on for the BBC – and consider how these trends and changes are affecting the way we carry out our business.

Simon will share his experience of growing his £37 million company – and how he sees both being based in Barnsley and taking full advantage of digital platforms as integral to his future plans.

Social media expert Linda Cheung, of Cube Social, will talk about how the role of LinkedIn has evolved – and how this particular business networking platform can be used to the best effect, to build and optimise your personal profile.

Creative technologist Adria McEwen will explore how the Internet is increasingly escaping from behind screens and into the world. He will look at developments in the ‘Internet of Things’ and how all these new connected devices can help business grow and succeed.
