Networking Cafe

Networking is key to taking any business to the next level and feedback from last year’s event indicated that you wanted ‘more time for networking built into the day, but for it to be structured’.

In response, and new for this year, is our Networking Cafe – a structured networking area allowing you to connect with others with similar interests on a range of topics including recruitment & retention; team culture; digital marketing; entrepreneurial growth; business models; access to finance; selling internationally; innovation; leadership and building successful brands.

Taking place from 10.30am – 3.30pm on the 1st Floor of the Glasgow Science Centre, you are invited to drop in and out of these ‘table discussions’. To help break the ice and to ensure conversations get off to a good start, discussions will be facilitated throughout by Saltire Fellows and members of Scottish Enterprise’s Workplace Innovation Team.

Topics and facilitators include:

Access to Finance: Gregor Russell, Saltire Fellow

Building Successful Brands: Ewan McCowen, Saltire Fellow

Entrepreneurial Growth: Joanne Hagarty, Saltire Fellow

Innovation: Ryder Meggitt, Saltire Fellow

Leadership: Claudia Cavalluzzo, Saltire Fellow

Selling Internationally: Eleanore Irvin, Saltire Fellow

Team Culture: Nicky Hoey and Lesley Doyle, Scottish Enterprise

Tech Start-up: Sara Robertson, Saltire Fellow
