GOOGLE has selected a Bicester-based company that helps businesses gain coverage online to take part in its development workshops.

The search engine giant chose Bicester’s Pay per click agency Digital Gearbox for the workshops among 40 other organisations in the country.

The ‘elevator’ workshops are provided to companies to help develop businesses, attract more clients and grow their business.

Digital Gearbox managing director Becky Hopkin went along to the first three-day long training workshop.

She said: “It is an amazing opportunity to discuss goals, challenges and processes with like-minded agencies, both big and small, and to take the time to learn from one another and to establish a clear path forward for our business.”

Over coming months the business will head to Google HQ in London, meeting with their own personal business coach to discuss agency strategy, setting goals using Google framework, and attending team training.
