GrowBiz XChange Networking Event - Birnam

This month's XChange networking event is all about making digital technology work for your business. Speakers for the evening include Merle Palmer, founder of professional ancestry research company Your Scots Past and Comrie-based Bravo Nyamudoka from Rising Tide Technology Consultants. Merle and Bravo also provide support to GrowBiz clients. They'll talk about some of the digital solutions they've found which make running their business - and helping others - easier.

Also hear from Fixed wireless internet design and access consultant Stephen McKinley. Stephen works for internet service provider Bogons, which owns the former nuclear bunker at Cultybraggan on the outskirts of Comrie where he is the resident engineer. He ran his own electrical contracting business in Australia before moving to England some eight years ago and Comrie just a couple of months ago.

Bogons Ltd aims to offer internet services to people who don’t need end user technical support, and earlier this year was involved in the £300,000 community broadband project at Balquhidder near Stirling which saw local volunteers dig 22 miles of trenches and lay protective piping for fibre optic cables, proving 200 homes in the area with mobile reception and faster internet connections.

One of the highlights of the event will be a 'digital speed networking' session - a chance to meet at least three more Perthshire entrepreneurs to find out what technology they use to make their businesses work.

GrowBiz XChange network evenings are informal and friendly – we can guarantee you won't be left standing on your own! They're a great opportunity to meet other local businesses and grow your network of useful contacts. The evening will kick off at 6pm with a buffet and networking,followed by our panel session and more networking.

You are welcome to bring business cards, flyers or information on your events to share with other attendees.
