Orkney Business Festival programme unveiled

The programme for the second Orkney Business Festival has been unveiled.

The festival, which is due to get underway in three weeks time, will feature a series of events which will tap into the wealth of experience held by well-known local business people as well as some from further afield.

The festival will take place from March 20 to 23 and the topics of the workshops and events will range from digital marketing and social media, to tips for recruiting, and how to sell internationally.

Building on the success of the first Orkney Business Festival in 2016, the event has been organised by Business Gateway Orkney, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Orkney Islands Council. Events take place in Kirkwall at the Orkney Arts Theatre, the Pickaquoy Centre and the St Magnus Centre.

Claire Kemp, Business Gateway Orkney manager, says: “Feedback from our first festival has helped us to design a festival programme with something for everyone, no matter what stage their business is at — from someone who is about to start, to someone who is wanting to grow, to those looking at options which will help future-proof more established businesses.

“Whatever stage you are at in business — new, well-established, or just with a germ of an idea — there will be something for you.”

The previous and inaugural business festival took place in 2016.
