Scotland’s most successful entrepreneurial leaders are to share experiences of how being disruptive can transform businesses and add economic value.
Entrepreneurial Scotland’s annual conference, at Gleneagles Hotel on April 21, will hear from a line-up of top business leaders including Bill Aulet, senior lecturer at MIT and managing director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.
The former professional basketball player will be in good company, with Brian Duffy, past president of Ralph Lauren EMEA, Lesley Eccles of FanDuel, Jim McColl of Clyde Blowers and Rod Mountain, founder of Healthcare – Designed in Dundee, all due to appear.
“This year’s conference is set to be truly inspirational and we encourage anyone who is growing their business to join us,” said Sandy Kennedy, CEO of Entrepreneurial Scotland.
“We aim to provide a genuinely life-changing experience where delegates will have the chance to mix with some of our top talent – people who are internationally successful and willing to share their learning with others.
“Our theme is all about how a disruptive approach can open up new opportunities and markets, turbo-charging the economy and creating a real wake-up call to existing business.
“In a fast moving and constantly changing economy we want to ensure that our brightest, most talented entrepreneurial leaders have access to the experience of others who have been there and can help them to map out successful paths for their businesses.
“We know that growing businesses need inspiration, the opportunity to connect with other like-minded individuals and the chance to develop their skills.
“The 2016 Entrepreneurial Scotland Annual Conference is designed to do just that – so don’t miss the chance to be there.”
The conference is being supported by The Courier as official media partner.
“We are committed to supporting businesses of all kinds and every day our pages are crammed with news about some of Scotland’s most exciting entrepreneurial businesses,” said Courier editor Richard Neville.
“Entrepreneurs play a central role in Scotland’s economy creating a healthy, creative and disruptive economy.”
The speaker line-up for Entrepreneurial Scotland’s 2016 Annual Conference reads like a who’s who of the business world.
In addition to Bill Aulet’s keynote, delegates will hear from Bob Keiller, the former chief executive of Wood Group who became Scottish Enterprise’s new chairman at the turn of the year.
