Five-day programme of Scottish International Week events to help firms go global or expand internationally
The Institute of Directors (IoD) Scotland has launched Scottish International Week – a five-day programme of events for businesses taking their first steps into the worldwide market, as well as international firms which are looking to increase their overseas activity.
The week-long initiative is being held in partnership with Scottish Business Network and will run from 9 to 13 October at the IoD Scotland HQ in Edinburgh.
The week-long agenda will comprise a series of workshops, round table events and panel discussions on how businesses can open up new opportunities in the fastest growing markets in the world, as well as how to approach challenges, and how to optimise success, while minimising risk.
Keynote speakers include Susan A. Wilson, Principal Officer at U.S. Consulate General in Edinburgh; Rosemary McLennan, Managing Director at Scottish PA Network, and Suhail Ahmad, UK Correspondent for the Islamic Finance News.
David Watt, Executive Director at the IoD Scotland, said: “Scotland has a long and proud history of doing business across the globe. And with uncertainty at home, many more businesses are now looking to established overseas markets as part of their growth plans.
“It can be both rewarding, and complex – which is why we are thrilled to be hosting this new event in partnership with Scottish Business Network. It will be a celebration of Scotland’s International links and an opportunity to share meaningful information with Scottish companies, helping them to access opportunities in new international markets.”
