MacRoberts sponsors the inaugural Scottish Business Insider SME Conference
Following on from the success of the Scottish SME Awards, the inaugural Scottish Business Insider SME Conference took place at The Studio in Glasgow this week (30th November), at which MacRoberts was a key sponsor.
The conference focused on what is a vital part of the Scottish business community, bringing together SMEs from across Scotland and giving them the opportunity to engage with business leaders and companies who can offer an insight into successful growth and diversity. Hosted by journalist and broadcaster Stephen Jardine, the conference featured panel discussions on leadership, PR and marketing, technology and finance.
During an innovative and interactive 45-minute session, two of our Corporate partners, Alan Kelly and Michael Kelly, along with some virtual cast members, took the audience through the process of doing a business deal, exploring some of the practical and legal issues arising for SMEs in achieving succession or exit. Guests were asked to vote in two live polls and submit questions/comments using Sli.do, an online audience interaction tool – audience members log in to Sli.do on their phone or tablet/laptop with a unique event code, and questions submitted through the site appear on screen in real time, making it a truly interactive experience for everyone.
