FIFE graphic design agency, Redefine, pressed the button this week to officially launch this year’s Fife Business Week website.
Fife Business Week is set to run this year from 6th to 10th November. In a week that is packed full of events aimed at inspiring and supporting Fife’s business community, it will also provide opportunities for Fife’s businesses to come together to network and exchange ideas.
Co-founders and partners of Redefine Design Agency, Stuart Coull and Bradley McLaughlin, are based at the Enterprise Hub Fife in Glenrothes and in their first year of operation, they are proving to be a creative force with a rapidly growing client base across a range of sectors. Both graduates in graphic and digital design, they started out with support from the Princes Trust and Business Gateway Fife.
Bradley McLaughlin commented: “We are really looking forward to seeing what Fife Business Week can offer a new business like ours. To date, we have been so pleased with the support and advice given to us, we are sure that some of the events on offer will be of benefit to us as we move forward and develop. Being based at the Enterprise Hub has given the business a real boost as we’re in a new office, fit for purpose with great connectivity and ideally located for clients.”
Now in its eighth year, Fife’s main business event offers a broad range of seminars and workshops, covering important issues for the local economy and is once again set to be a major highlight of the Kingdom’s business calendar. Workshops range from Social Media Strategy and Building Capacity for Growth to Attracting International Customers and a Masterclass in Business Funding.
This year also incorporates a Finance Week, where a number of school-based events will be happening. the week of events is only the catalyst for the development of a long term progressive finance programme which will be embedded into the school curriculum.
Pamela Stevenson, Lead Officer for Economic Development & Enterprise, Fife Council said: “Fife Business Week is a great showcase to promote local business and their success. It offers the opportunity for every company in Fife to come along, hear from industry experts whilst making new contacts and exchanging ideas.”
During Fife Business Week, a Fife Council Meet the Buyer event will also be scheduled to connect businesses with buyers and decision makers to discuss how to access business with public sector agencies and prime private sector contractors, to highlight upcoming opportunities.
Pamela added: “The theme for this year’s programme of events is Inspiring and Supporting Fife’s Businesses, aligned to Fife Economic Partnership’s objectives. The week of action will focus on key issues that are impacting on Fife entrepreneurs, business start-ups and employers with fresh insights into workforce development, finance and strategy and digital connectivity.
“Events will take place across Fife to inspire companies and entrepreneurs, and the majority are free to attend. We look forward to welcoming all businesses.”
Hosted by Fife Council’s Economic Development Team and Business Gateway team, Fife Business Week is designed to support businesses to succeed and flourish whilst making Fife the best place to do business.
