University of the West of Scotland to host next meeting of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle

The next business breakfast networking meeting of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle will be hosted by the University of the West of Scotland. The meeting will take place at 8am on Friday 3 October at the University’s Ayr Campus.

This summer, the University of the West of Scotland is launching an ambitious new corporate strategy. This strategy includes a key focus on developing the University’s global reach by internationalising its student body, staff, culture, research and academic portfolio. The University will re-focus its business development, consultancy and knowledge exchange capacity to promote more international activity and become the ‘go to’ institution for its regional stakeholders and businesses.

The University invites members and guests of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle to a breakfast meeting on Friday 3 October 2014 at the UWS Ayr Campus, where Vice Principal (International) Professor Jeanne Keay (pictured above) will speak about the University’s developing international plans and invite the views of the Circle members. 

Frazer Coogans Commercial Solicitors managing partner and Elite Ayrshire Business Circle executive chairman Norman Geddes (pictured above) commented: “Since our Circle’s inception, we have consistently supported and encouraged our members in their quest for new markets, especially overseas.

“The topic chosen by the University of the West of Scotland for our next meeting accords perfectly with this philosophy, and we are looking forward greatly to an interesting, enjoyable and productive event.”
