Productivity Club Highlands and Islands
Thursday 28 October 1500 – 1630
Speakers: Peter Wilson, Director, Mackenzie and Cruickshank; Sarah Barnes, Programme Manager, DYW Moray; Margo Kidd COO & Ken McGeoch CEO, Xcel Financial Solutions; Maria Bell, Managing Director, Mesomorphic.
Our October events will be dedicated to youth employability, and we will be collaborating with Developing the Young Workforce Moray. We believe that young people can bring new energy and skills to organisations, unleashing productivity. At the same time, businesses investing in the young workforce will help Scotland retain talent, benefitting local economies.
We will hear from employers who’ve offered an apprenticeship to a young person and how this benefited their business. We will also hear from a DYW Moray representative who will tell us about support and funding for employers interested in an apprenticeship or other young person employment or placement opportunities. There will be time for networking, a group discussion and a Q&A session.
We are keeping our events online for a little bit longer but we plan to return to in person as soon as possible.
