A series of one-day courses on doing business on the Internet has been organised by Live & Direct, a company which specialises in corporate communication. The courses will enable non-IT literate directors and managers to understand the potential of the Internet, as well as demonstrating the variety of ways in which companies are already using the Internet to enhance sales and profits. Live & Direct says that corporate giants have already registered for domains on the Internet and the number of clients investing in it is increasing. `Some companies are experimenting, others like IBM and Hewlett-Packard are laying the groundwork for entirely new ways of doing business,’ says Live & Direct managing director Mark Rowland.
