Description

This is the fourth meeting of CAMentrepreneurs Scotland and our first event of 2018! And we are very pleased to have partnered again with the University of Edinburgh's Business School and its Entrepreneurship Club.

From transforming a very traditional family business to using gamification to creating a new one.

Our first speaker is Alistair Tusting of Tustings who has reinvented a very traditional family manufacturing business and taken it global.

Our second speaker is Colin Gilchrist of Games Without Frontiers (GWOF) who will talk about GWOF - a young, award winning company with ambitious growth plans. He will also introduce us to their business simulation game ROCKET. And 15 participants will be given the opportunity to play ROCKET in June 2018 at the Business School!
