Simplify AI: Embracing new technologies in your business with Solent Partners training

In a constantly changing business landscape, artificial intelligence is the key term on many lips but few have got to grips with its potential, let alone how to incorporate it into their company. Solent Partners can help.

If you are based in the Solent area, don’t worry – help is at hand to assist you in understanding the opportunities of AI and navigating the technology to adapt it to your small to medium enterprise.

Many experts agree that AI looks like being the next big thing and something that could revolutionise business practices for many firms. AI technologies present genuine opportunities for SMEs to enhance operational efficiency, customer experience and business growth.

Free workshops

As part of a programme of fully-funded training courses, Skills for Successful Business, Solent Partners is delighted to announce the launch of a series of Simplify AI workshops. These workshops aim to clarify basic fundamentals of artificial intelligence (AI) for small and medium-sized businesses, freelancers and marketeers.  Run in collaboration with Intergage Group, the workshops will provide an introduction to AI, looking at tools like Chat GPT, Google Gemini, Microsoft Co-Pilot and more. These types of tools can be used by businesses to transform their operations and strategies, especially where they do not have a pool of people and resources to enable growth. 

These workshops will cover:  - An overview of the current state of AI.  - Examples of real-world use-cases for AI tools.  - An understanding of the next steps to prepare for the use of AI in the workplace. 

There are five workshops running between March 21 and June 11.  Some are virtual and some are in-person.  Click on Find Out More for times, locations and how to book.

With a broad technical background spanning over 20 years in emerging digital technologies, Luke has held positions at Farrow & Ball and the RNLI, and has worked as a consultant in digital innovation, performance marketing, social media and mobile data technology. 

“We are at a pivotal moment in the evolution of technology, where artificial intelligence (AI) is not just an option but a necessity for growth. As the Group Head of AI at Intergage Group, my focus is on harnessing the transformative power of AI to unlock unprecedented opportunities for our clients.”


Luke continued: Our commitment is twofold: Firstly, to empower businesses with AI-driven strategies that catalyse growth, enhance customer engagement, and streamline operations; and secondly, to innovate and develop AI-centric products specifically designed for marketing teams.

“These tools are not just about automation; they are about enabling a deeper understanding of consumer behaviour, optimising marketing efforts in real-time, and driving more meaningful interactions.

“At Intergage Group, we believe in the synergy of technology and creativity, and through AI, we are setting new standards in how businesses connect with their audiences. Our mission is clear: to equip our clients with the most advanced AI solutions that not only meet the demands of today's digital landscape but also anticipate the needs of tomorrow.
