Showcasing the Welsh language in business in Dyffryn Nantlle
On Tuesday morning, 15 March at Pant Du Vineyard at Penygroes hunaniaith, the Gwynedd based Menter Iaith will be hosting a Business Breakfast to highlight the advantages of using Welsh in marketing strategies.
In its work supporting local enterprises to increase their use of the Welsh language, hunaniaith have realised that there are good practices and strategies that all businesses in Gwynedd can take advantage of. Whether they be first language speakers or only have very few skills in the language, using Welsh can have a positive impact on their bottom-line.
The event will be held between 7.00 and 9.00 a.m., with a free and tasty breakfast included, and will showcase a successful Dyffryn Nantlle business: Pant Du Vineyard itself. A business which is winning a reputation as a producer of excellent wines and cider at their vineyard on the edge of Snowdonia National Park. Using Welsh as well as English has been a central feature of their marketing strategy. Richard Hughes from Pant Du, together with Justin Davies from Gringo Design will discuss how both languages were effectively incorporated into the business’ image.
There will also be presentations from Gwynedd Council’s Economic and Community Development Unit about its Buy Local project. The Welsh Language Commissioner and Canolfan Bedwyr will also be present to explain how to increase the use of Welsh in business and what resources and support are available to do so; hunaniaith’s Language Development Officer will also give an overview of practical steps that can be taken to increase the use of Welsh in business.
Any business in the Arfon area wishing to attend should contact Ifan Jones on 01286 679452 or email at email@example.com.
