Last week, we were delighted to host the first ever “Grow Your Business” event at Eskmills to help local companies boost their businesses. The inaugural “Grow Your Business” event, which was held on Thursday 4th April in partnership with Bruce Stevenson Insurance Brokers, saw attendance from over 60 guests from the Edinburgh and Lothians business community.
As an innovative business park, we’re always looking for ways to support our tenants, as well as the wider business community – so bringing together top speakers for a morning of business advice and inspiration seemed like the perfect idea. As well as hearing from top speakers, the event also gave attendees the chance to network with other local business owners, providing useful knowledge and connections for business growth.
The event kicked off with an introduction from Oliver Stephen, the owner of Eskmills, welcoming both tenants and non-tenants alike and highlighting the benefits and services offered here. Whether you’re looking for a stand-alone office for a big team, or a small serviced office space for a start-up business, the Eskmills team is always here to help!
Other speakers at the event included Graeme Davis of IT Solutions, who discussed when it’s the right time to bring in the professionals rather than doing things yourself, and Andrew Ewing of Johnston Carmichael, who gave an interesting insight into the different types and methods of funding small businesses can utilise.
Guests also heard from Avril Tait of P4P Creative who gave a very personal insight into her and her partner’s experience with setting up an employee ownership scheme, and Michael Hashim of Bruce Stevenson, who presented an honest account of the must-haves of business insurance.
The first “Grow Your Business” event was deemed a great success by attendees, giving them the confidence and knowledge to boost their business plans. We can’t wait to host many more business events in the future – hope to see you at the next one!
