We have now recovered (just about!) from a very busy Stirling Business Month 2017.
Delegates were introduced to the theme for May – Investing in Our Future – at the opening conference on May 2nd. There was even a hot yoga taster, courtesy of Stirling studio HEAT Fitness.
We’ve taken to Twitter to compile some of the best tweets that were shared during Stirling Business Month!
We heard from speakers that have faced challenges…
“The worst part of my job is military discipline,” explains Sarah from 225 Scottish Medical Regiment #StirlingBusinessMonth
As well as rugby, Iain was also a successful businessman, but things changed in 2000. “I was crying on my own at home. Then I broke down.” – Iain Milne, former Scotland rugby player
“Scottish Presbyterian men – we think we’re indestructable, but we’re not!” Says Iain. #StirlingBusinessMonth
There were some fantastic insights…
“The City Deal is more than just infrastructure based. We’ve interacted with business, third sector & communities.” #StirlingBusinessMonth – Stewart Carruth, Stirling Council
“From a Council point of view we want to put our young people in touch with businesses across the region,” Stewart Carruth @StirlingCouncil
Tenants of @CodebaseTech benefit from support & mutual learning. “We want to collectively address gender balance too,” says Janine.
Steamship Sir Walter Scott has moved on & diversified…bikes are now available which have been hugely popular. #StirlingBusinessMonth
And some great advice…
“Encourage ur employees 2 speak 2 you. You need to learn to say no sometimes. Your business & ur family is the most important,” says Iain.
We’ve had great feedback…
- Hazel Burt, French Duncan
- Allan Campbell, RBS
