Digital Drive Digital Champions

Our Digital Champions are experts in their field who have agreed to act as ambassadors for Digital Drive and help our businesses to drive their business forward through their digital adoption journey.  Each of them can offer invaluable help and advice across a range of topics.  

You will often find our champions giving up their time to be a part of one of our Mentoring Days, other times they will be presenting at one of our events, and sometimes they will just be in attendance at our events to speak and network with businesses from across County Durham.
