UHI Business Competition launched
Our UHI Business Competition is now open for entries to everyone over the age of 16 living within the Highlands and Islands, Moray, Argyll and Perthshire, including students at all 13 colleges and research centres within the UHI partnership. Since the competition was established, entrants have used it as a platform to share their ideas, receive support and launch their entrepreneurial careers.
Women in Business Seminar
Our lunchtime seminar was facilitated by Professor Vicky Johnson and included 2 keynote speakers - Korkor Cudjoe who works for Graca Machel Trust as their project lea on Women Creating Wealth and Marina Novelli who is a Professor of Tourism and International Development at the University of Brighton and an active member of the global sustainable tourism community and an alternate member of the UNWTO World Committee on Tourism Ethics (2021-2025).
Thanks to our guests for making this an interesting interactive conversation and, in particular, members of the Highland Business Women who attended.
