The SCDI is an independent membership network who are a non-political and not-for-profit organisation that represents a cross-section of the private, public and social economy sectors. The annual forum convenes leaders from business, politics, the public and third sector and education establishments – alongside future leaders.
The two-day programme will provide networking opportunities for participants and interactive debates, focusing on strengthening foundations of economic growth and turn the environmental, demographic, mobility, educational and technological challenges that Scotland faces into clear economic opportunities for the future.
David Harper, Chairman at go-centric, who will be at the event, said: “As a Scottish man, owning an organisation in Glasgow, I felt it was critical for us to join SCDI. It’s a very reputable organisation, with clear goals in supporting businesses across Scotland to come together and grow Scotland’s economy. Being a member connects us with so many highly respected organisations and support from Scottish Enterprise. I’m delighted that we’re exhibiting at the annual forum this year and am looking forward to what looks like a great agenda, as well as networking with other successful business leaders. At go-centric we’re obsessed about delivering an amazing customer experience, it’s something I’m personally passionate about and I’m looking forward to sharing our vision.”
