Gary Ennis, managing director of Hillington-based company NSDesign, will begin his new tenure as Business Mentor for the Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday January 26th with a free workshop for local businesses entitled ‘Websites that work – getting real results online’.

Participants attending the workshop will be advised on search engine optimisation techniques, choosing a suitable website domain name and how to deliver successful results through online means.

Ennis, who established NSDesign in 1999, has been shortlisted three times for the reputed ‘Creative Entrepreneur of the Year’ award, and in 2010, his company won the ROCCO award for Innovation and Technology –  an accolade which gives recognition to the creative and dynamic use of technology to fill a gap in the market.

The new business mentor position will see Ennis extending support to local businesses to encourage understanding of digital marketing and how to achieve online business objectives.

Gary said: “I am absolutely delighted to take on the new position of business mentor with the Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce.

“At NSDesign, we pride ourselves on serving local businesses and members of the Renfrewshire Community – it is a real privilege to be given the opportunity to work more in partnership with the chamber and its members.”

Bob Davidson, chief executive of Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “Gary Ennis is a truly dedicated and supportive member of the Chamber and NSDesign’s popularity and business reach continues to grow here year on year.

“Having seen Gary run workshops and seminars on the past, I am confident that eligible companies will learn a lot from having Gary as their mentor. I recommend businesses to register fast as space is limited and filling up quickly.”
