Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang Business Net­work.

The business net­work was formed last year, and held two suc­cess­ful meet­ings, as well as a showcase event in June.

Now, they have con­firmed the first meet­ing of 2015 will take place on Fri­day, Jan­uary 23, at the Burn­side Ho­tel on East Kil­bride Road.

The net­work is the brain­child of Gary Hosie of PTS Clean.

He said: “I have got Clyde Foot­ball Club at­tend­ing, with the di­rec­tor Bobby Gracey and for­mer Scot­land in­ter­na­tional Barry Fer­gu­son will be speak­ing about Clyde’s plans for the fu­ture as well as how they can help our lo­cal net­work.”

A host of lo­cal busi­nesses have sup­ported the net­work so far, in­clud­ing an in­dus­trial clean­ing equip­ment sup­plier, foot­ball clubs, in­surance bro­kers, ho­tels, ra­dio sta­tions, gar­den­ers and even a ma­gi­cian.

Gary said: “I would strongly en­cour­age any company, or­gan­i­sa­tion or char­ity to spare a few hours and go along to the Burn­side Ho­tel for the event.

“Build­ing a lo­cal plat­form to get lo­cal com­pa­nies in the area to­gether to net­work and ex­change ideas is a great idea, and to find out more about the great busi­nesses on our door step that we prob­a­bly drive past ev­ery day but don’t know about.

“Per­son­ally I see great ben­e­fits of get­ting in­volved in this net­work group as it’s a great chance to build up your con­tacts, in­ter­act with like-minded busi­nesses, it’s also free and no reg­is­tra­tion is nec­es­sary.”

Tom Greatrex MP and James Kelly MSP have sup­ported pre­vi­ous net­work meet­ings.

Tom en­courged lo­cal firms to go along to the meet­ing and make use­ful con­tacts.

He said: “I con­tinue to be im­pressed by the work that Gary and other busi­nesses are putting in, to make sure that peo­ple net­work with each other, and are able to share good ideas and help build up business.

“Times have been tough, but we still have some very good lo­cal busi­nesses and they are able to support each other.”

Gary added: “It’s an open invitation to just turn up on the day but if pos­si­ble could you please e-mail gary@ptsclean. com with your full name and company name so we can get a rough idea of num­bers or if you would like to know any more in­for­ma­tion please don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact me.”
