The WEN meetings are informal and friendly – even if you're just thinking about starting a business, come along and be inspired. All welcome to come along. The evening starts off with a buffet from 6.00 p.m.
At our November WEN we have speakers talking on Finances – RBS, Free-Agent and Crowd Funding.
Emma Miller from the Royal Bank of Scotland will explain her role as a Business Growth Enabler and how she can help support business customers. She will also provide information on what RBS can offer you as a business owner including local events and talk about their affiliated accounting program, Free-Agent. Emma has worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland for 12 years. Progressing from cashier to branch manager she then moved in to Commercial banking and now works as a Business Growth Enabler. Her current role involves supporting local businesses, from opening their first bank account; arranging lending; right through to helping sustain businesses or help them grow. She does this by connecting relevant people and also hosting local events.
Jennifer Lindsay-Finan uses Free-Agent as her accounting software and will give an user's perspective of the benefits an online package can bring to your business.
Ros Marshall and Kirsty Lunn from Molke ran a very successful crowdfunding campaign earlier this year and will share their experiences of the benefits and challenges such a campaign can bring.
