Entrepreneurial Thinking and Business Enhancement

SCDI Business Engagement and Networking Dinner

2 October 2019

SCDI are pleased to extend an invitation to a business engagement and networking dinner, in partnership with Expense Reduction Analysts.

The speakers with whom ERA have worked to create this event are two entrepreneurial thinkers, with experience of using innovative viewpoints to establish and enhance a business:

  • Steve Dunlop, Chief Executive of Scottish Enterprise, will discuss the work of the National Economic Development Agency and his ambitions to support sustainable economic growth and a fairer economy that benefits all of Scotland’s communities
  • Jamie Douglas-Hamilton was Start Up Entrepreneur of the Year in 2018, for his work in founding Actiph Water. He was inspired by his own experience of rowing the Indian Ocean to create an ionised, alkaline bottled water, and Actiph Water is now stocked internationally by vendors including Harrods and Whole Foods.


ERA are a business consultancy who offer strategic advice and practical methods to optimise supplier relationships. In the UK & Ireland, they have a network of 135 specialist procurement consultants, with expertise in more than 35 major cost groups.
