An opportunity to influence your economic landscape - IoD Directors in Central Scotland, invite you to participate in an event at which The Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Keith Brown MSP, will set out current thinking and plans for the economic development of this strategic region.
First promoted by the UK Government, City Region and other forms of Growth Deals are being developed for Stirling and Clackmannanshire bringing a new form of investment into the area’s economic infrastructure. These Deals are tailored to each specified area, reflecting their economic strengths and seeking to help tackle their weaknesses. They comprise a programme of public sector led interventions to support positive, transformative change aimed at stimulating private and social sector activity. And we have invited representatives from the Council’s to outline their proposed initiatives.
Date & time: 20 Feb 2018 18:00 - 20:00
Location: Forth Valley College, Alloa
CPD Hours: 2.0000
Ms Patricia Huth
The Directors at the IoD believe it’s vital that this strategic, centrally located area which lies at the heart of Scotland, develops its own vibrant, ambitious and growing economy. We want to encourage more investment, ensure we don’t lose skills and make sure investments in the local infrastructure facilitate gains to productivity, help drive up levels of innovation and support a greater internationalisation of the local economy.
We believe the City Region and other Growth Deals will have the greatest impact if there is a strong employer voice and we want to ensure you are informed and involved as these Deals move forward. In essence we are seeking leaders like you who are willing to step beyond the boundaries of their own organisation and support the long term prosperity of the area, and in turn their business.
At this inaugural event, IoD will launch a forum for Leaders from all sectors to play our part in providing broader economic leadership of the local area.
We hope that you can prioritise your time to ensure your voice is heard.
