Our conference focus aims to create meaningful connections and collaborations within a global network of business peers.

The logistics of travel may have changed, but our mindset has not: Scottish Business Network are focused to link and deepen relationships, and we need these connections now more than ever. Join us as we broaden our horizons, inspire, and discover global opportunities and celebrate our shared culture, innovations, competitive advantages, and future opportunities.

Working in partnership with our sponsors and speakers our programme will have a mix of live events, webinars, and virtual drop-ins and panels where we can network live across the world.

As a Scottish global business community, we will be uniting our Scottish leadership with Scottish leaders from around the world who can share their experience, their insight, and how we together can support Scottish business. Our audience and participants will be connected commonly through a pride and passion for business in Scotland. Participants selected each have a link to Scotland and have ‘What's next?’ insights that the SIW2020 organisers can’t wait to share with our global community.
