​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Business Connect Scotland

​Following the success of Business Connect across the border, we have introduced Business Connect Scotland.

The Business Connect programme provides the unique opportunity to engage and learn from world-class businesses and social enterprises, gaining insight from real-life examples. 

Join us on the leading experiential learning programme in the housing sector. Gain knowledge and business insight from the best to help you improve the performance of your organisation.

​What can the social housing sector learn from commercial organisations? 

At a strategic level, there are many similarities to be drawn. From operations to staff motivation, marketing to finance, we are sure you will pick up some invaluable knowledge to take back to your own organisation.

​Successful Scottish businesses

During our visits we had the opportunity to go behind the scenes and discover how these high-performing businesses operate:

​H​​ighland Spring - Blackford

Keela - Glenrothes

Nairn's Oatcakes - Edinburgh

Social Enterprise Academy - Edinburgh

Scottis​h Water​ - ​Glasgow

​'Business Connect provides a great way to lear​n about other organisations and apply ideas to one's own work.  It can also provide a new opportunity to network with other professionals in similar roles.  Learning from the best is particularly useful because the participants can share the barriers and challenges they have faced to create change within their own organisations.'

Evelyn McDowell, Business Solutions Leader at Wheatley Group​
