Connecting The Borders, Dumfries and Galloway with the World.

In what has been dubbed “A celebration of what The Borders, Dumfries and Galloway delivers to the world”, Borders College is delighted to announce that one of the speakers at the event will be Jane Grant Executive Director of Enterprise & Business Innovation at Borders College [Picture, inset above].

Jane has spent many years as a senior executive and consultant advising organisations on strategies to become more competitive, innovative and reap cost benefits from technology solutions and business improvement across all aspects of their business.

Latterly she has worked in the college sector consulting with a range of stakeholders and partners to help organisations develop their teams and create innovative practices.

She is a board member at the Scottish Council for Development & Industry (SCDI), a trustee board member at Floris Books, and a member of the Policy Group at Scotland IS.

Commenting on the opportunity to speak at the event, Jane said:

It’s a real honour to join the panellists at this South of Scotland International Virtual Conference hosted by South of Scotland Enterprise (SOSE) and the Scottish Business Network (SBN) to talk about technology, innovation and talent.  Borders College is working with organisations across the region to build the skills and knowledge of a workforce to meet the opportunities for our shared, fair and sustainable future.

Talking about the virtual conference, Russell Dalgleish. Chair, Scottish Business Network said:

“Having been born in Selkirk, I have a unique insight into the rich talent, culture and opportunity the South of Scotland can offer. Having spent the last few years of my life building Scotland’s Diaspora network across 70 plus countries, I know the demand there is by fellow Scots to contribute to Scotland. This event allows us to bring together these two communities and create collisions that will be transformational for these involved.”

Attendees at the online event will also hear from leading local entrepreneurs, senior international figures from the region and from those who can help build valuable international connections.

A key feature of this event will be the unique match-making service creating connections between businesses in the region and global connections, making it the Ultimate Networking Opportunity.

The event is being hosted by South of Scotland Enterprise and the Scottish Business Network, with a tagline of “Ready to learn from the best?”
