RGU Knowledge Bites for Business

RGU Knowledge Bites for Business provides thoughts and insights to help individuals and businesses at this challenging time.

New content will be added regularly to share RGU’s knowledge and experience across sectors in the form of short video clips, articles, courses and live interactive webinars.

RGU has a strong track record of working in partnership with companies to help address their challenges and never has working together been more important than today.

Knowledge Bites for Business is our platform to share some thoughts with you, which we hope will be helpful, either now or in the future …and we’ve deliberately kept each item really short!  We hope that by interacting with RGU Knowledge Bites, you will take away some new information or insight which will help you and your business develop, as well as a better understanding of how to access RGU services.

You will already find topics such as presenting online with confidence; introduction to intellectual property; and some further information about graduate apprenticeships and other support for business.

If there are other topics which would be of interest to you, or if you’d like to follow up on anything you’ve heard, let us know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We’d be really pleased to hear from you.

Wishing you all the very best
