Throughout February, a series of events and workshops designed for individuals and organisations looking to start up or grow a business, learn new skills, build networks, find inspiration or gain a competitive edge will be taking place across Tayside as part of the Tay Cities Business Month.
The events will be covering topics such as: E-Commerce; Book-keeping; The Circular Economy; Leadership; Procurement – meet the buyer; Finance and many more, and will be open to anyone.
In addition there will be dedicated events for key sectors such as Tourism, Food & Drink and Engineering. Each week will focus on a different theme and the event taking place will be tailored to that theme. The themes are: People, Sectors, Business Growth and Entrepreneurship.
Alison Henderson, Depute Chair of the Tay Cities Enterprise Forum said “In 2019 we hosted a Tay Cities Business Week, which was a great success; as such we decided to increase the offering this year and offer a wider range of events across the month. We’ve got a very strong regional partnership which has helped us pull together many opportunities – the events will inspire, motivate and help businesses to grow, achieving their goals in 2020. I’d urge everyone to have a look at the programme and come along for what will be an engaging, informative and exciting month for businesses across the Tayside region and beyond.
“Because of geographical spread, there will be good opportunities to make new business connections across Angus, Dundee, Fife, and Perth & Kinross. The events programme includes something for everyone and we welcome attendees from early start-up stage through to long-established companies.”
