IoD Scotland - Business and the Economy – an insightful evening with the IoD Central Scotland branch
It’s always good to meet with fellow members – but it’s even better to meet with fellow members and fascinating panellists to gain useful insights that will help you take your businesses forward. We call this ‘networking plus’.
We all know the pressures that we face with the current economic climate – but, as ever, challenge also presents opportunity. Featuring an economist’s insights, to nuggets from business leaders and an interactive panel Q&A - this event has it all. Network with fellow members and selected guests over drinks and canapes at what promises to be an exciting and invigorating evening.
Numbers for this event are limited, so book now. Guests are welcome to attend with an IoD Member but priority will be given to Members first and foremost.
