Happy 10th Birthday to Fife Business Week

Tuesday 10 September 2019

FIFE Business Week this year celebrates its tenth anniversary, delivering yet another fantastic week full of events, aimed at inspiring and supporting Fife’s business community, whilst providing opportunities for Fife’s businesses to come together to network and exchange ideas. The week kicks off on Monday 4th November and runs until Friday 8th November. Fife’s major business event programme 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. You need to be there! Launching this year’s Fife Business Week, Fife Economy Partnership Chair, Michael Longstaffe and Business Gateway Fife’s Chair Mark Cameron, paid a visit to John Young Group in Cowdenbeath who are also celebrating the tenth anniversary of their business.  Director, John Young commented: “We’ve grown over the last ten years from one successful business specialising in design signage into three distinctive areas, with the new divisions of Camat Design Ltd, a digital interior decoration design system and Halian, our PVCU no maintenance post sign system. We’ve invested heavily in Research and Development and developed our own range of bespoke interior printing products, including golf bags, furniture and car interiors.  We have had excellent advice and assistance from Business Gateway Fife throughout our journey. Our aim is to expand and operate globally whilst employing more people locally.” Michael Longstaffe added: “The Fife Economy Partnership is very focussed on encouraging every local business in Fife to flourish, with inspirational examples like John Young Group. We congratulate John and his team on reaching this milestone and wish them continued success and profitable growth into the future. “Over the last ten years, Fife Business Week has developed into a valuable and popular business initiative, offering a substantial number of events, which year-on-year engage local businesses in Fife, encouraging and inspiring, offering best practice and innovative ideas to support growth and development. I would encourage all Fife businesses and their leadership teams to engage with this important week of events, and to those businesses hosting events, sharing best practice, experiences and knowledge, thank you for making Fife the best place to do business.” This year, events range from Trading Online and Funding Growth to Using Technologies to Prepare your Workforce for the Future and Raising Ambition in Scottish Manufacturing.  There is an event to inspire all businesses, whether large or small, new or established. The full calendar of events to mark the tenth Fife Business Week will be rolled out at the end of September. 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. For more information on Fife Business Week please email craig.rutherford@bgfife.co.uk or visit www.fifebusinessweek.co.uk
