Our peer network brings together like-minded, ambitious individuals with a Scottish connection. Being part of the network allows you to connect with entrepreneurial leaders who have been there and done it before from across the world. A trusted environment, you will find that you are only one person away from getting the advice and encouragement you need to overcome a specific business challenge that gives you the winning advantage.
The most powerful and effective networks are those that are diverse, ones that provide meaningful opportunities to explore new ideas and different ways of thinking. It is vital to spend time with leaders you admire and want to learn from. Our vibrant and energetic peer network includes many of Scotland’s leading entrepreneurs. Surround yourself with great people and be inspired.
The world’s leading entrepreneurs recognise the importance of remaining curious about how others work and learning from them. Being innovative means learning from others and being able to adapt, identifying those able to share their skills and knowledge. Our network provides you with peer support, access to our Mentoring programme and world-class leadership development opportunities through our Saltire programmes to gain new knowledge and fuel your learning.
