Busi­ness sense

Firms get chance to come to­gether

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Kenny Smith

The Ruther­glen/ Cam­bus­lang Busi­ness Net­work is to hold its sec­ond meet­ing of 2015 next month.

Since be­ing launched in 2013, the or­gan­i­sa­tion has given lo­cal firms the chance to come to­gether in a cen­tral lo­ca­tion, and meet with each other, and in the past, firms have made new busi­ness con­tacts on their own doorsteps, sup­port­ing each other.

The next lo­cal busi­ness net­work event will take place on Fri­day, Au­gust 28.

Thanks to Clyde Gate­way the event is com­pletely free to at­tend, as they are spon­sor­ing it, al­low­ing for free tea and cof­fee, as well as sausage and ba­con rolls.

The net­work’s Gary Hosie, from PTS Clean, said: “For those of you who haven’t been along be­fore, the meet­ings are gen­er­ally well at­tended, av­er­ag­ing around 60 del­e­gates, from a wide range of lo­cal busi­nesses, lo­cal gov­ern­ment, or­gan­i­sa­tions and char­i­ties.

“The for­mat is re­laxed and in­for­mal, with fo­cus on lo­cal net­work­ing and a wealth of lo­cal busi­ness in­for­ma­tion and sup­port is also on of­fer from Clyde Gate­way, the Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions, Busi­ness Gate­way, South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, the lo­cal MP and MSP, to name but a few.

“All lo­cal busi­nesses are welcome to at­tend, and no reg­is­tra­tion is nec­es­sary, but please email your name and con­tact num­ber if you are in­tend­ing on com­ing along, pri­mar­ily to en­sure there is a hot roll with your name on it, and so we can let you know of any changes.”

The net­work held their last meet­ing in Jan­uary, when Clyde FC man­ager Barry Fer­gu­son was in at­ten­dance.

His visit tied in with the launch of the new Clyde FC Busi­ness Club

Gary added: “Jan­uary’s busi­ness net­work event was the best we have had yet.

“At the Burn­side Ho­tel we had a fan­tas­tic 50 peo­ple at­tend all from var­ied com­pa­nies such as Clyde Football Club, PTS Clean, Neil and Co, the Ruther­glen Re­former, the Daily Record, WW&J McClures, and many more.”

Those in­ter­ested should ei­ther call Sharon Cas­sidy on 0141 647 4200 or email her at info@ptsclean.com for more de­tails.
