“Local businesses will see the range of public and private sector support agencies, business experts and entrepreneurs keen to help them move their businesses forward,” – Lesley Laird, Fife Council
A full calendar of events to mark the sixth Fife Business Week will be rolled out next month, Fife Council has revealed.
This year’s event will run between November 9 and 13, depute council leader councillor Lesley Laird announced today (Monday, September 14).
Managed by Business Gateway Fife on behalf of Fife Council Economic Development, the initiative is designed to help support local businesses while “making Fife the best place to do business”.
According to cllr Laird, 2015 will be the most comprehensive line-up yet – with events addressing key strategic issues for the Fife economy.
She said: “This year’s Fife Business Week is focused on the changing business environment and offers valuable insight into issues affecting all companies and sectors from workforce development, managing business finance and strategy and digital connectivity.
“Each year Fife Business Week has offered stimulating programmes of events and we have seen skills developed and collaborative relationships built. This year we hope to build on that and support new entrepreneurs and established businesses looking for a new stage of growth move into 2016 with a new vigour.”
The Council says the largely free to attend Fife Business Week 2015 programme will reflect the key issues of businesses in the Kingdom, including employability and training, communicating with customers on social media platforms, tourism, business finance and strategy.
It says a Meet the Buyer event will also be scheduled to highlight upcoming opportunities. Events take place across Fife and the vast majority are free to attend.
Cllr Laird added: “Fife Council and the Fife Economy Partnership are ambitious to see the local economy flourish and we are grateful to our partners for their support during Fife Business Week. They will run an informative line-up of events to share their knowledge and expertise. Local businesses will also see the range of public and private sector support agencies, business experts and entrepreneurs keen to help them move their businesses forward.”
