Business inspiration from Glasgow firm
Perthshire Businesswomen’s Network (PBN) is‘Striving for Excellence’at an event in Glasgow this week.
Members are heading to Glasgow’s Merchant City on Thursday, August 31 to hear from itison’s founder Oli Norman, who earlier this year saw his firm listed in The Sunday Times 100 best small companies to work for.
Jane Rennie, PBN chairwoman, hopes people will come along to learn more from experts in the industry.
She said:“Oli embarked on his real passion at 24, growing businesses and creating a place where he wants to work. And, as proud owner of one of the coolest places to work in the UK, it’s a career move at which he has excelled.
“Oli’s first business, DADA, grew and achieved exciting results, and in 2008 Oli was named Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In September 2010, Oli launched itison and the rest is history.
“At work, Oli is focused on strategy and innovation, helping itison enjoy exciting growth. He also owns Sloans, Glasgow’s oldest bar and restaurant, Brel in the West End of Glasgow, Maggie May’s and the iconic Griffin Bar opposite The King’s Theatre.”
A bus will be leaving for the Glasgow PBN event from Broxden park and ride at 5pm on Thursday, heading back at 9pm, and is expected to arrive back in Perth at 10.15pm.
Tickets including travel cost £22 for PBN members and £31 for non-members and are available through EventBrite and www. perthshirebusinesswomen. co.uk.
