Businesses turn out for Business Week

Angus Business Week fired up in style on Monday, with an early morning event aimed at encouraging and supporting local businesses to trade globally.

This is the second Angus Business Week, and a buys programme of events has been organised.

The first event included a talks by keynote speaker Mike Butler of pharmaceutical company Xceleron, Nik Scott-Gray of Montrose Port Authority, Tony Walker of Ritchie Ltd and Kristell Clunie and Smart Masoni of Scottish Development International.

“Angus is an innovative, outward-looking county with a range of companies who are either already successfully trading in international markets or have real potential to do well globally,” said Tony Walker of Ritchie Ltd, a company which has successfully made its mark on overseas’ markets.

“This breakfast was an excellent opportunity for Angus companies to find out how they can develop the international side of their business. There are many other events happening during Angus Business Week which will prove equally helpful to local companies whether they are trading in the UK or overseas.”

Angus Business Week runs until Friday (September 18) with a programme of free events taking place throughout the county to help local companies invest, work, grow and thrive, including workshops looking at the Modern Apprentices scheme and starting up a business, networking events for business women and engineering companies and a motivational evening.

A few places are still available at many of the events taking place during Angus Business Week 2015. To find out more, and book places at events, visit
