Join the masses for this first-ever Business Gateway Tayside Conference, which has been created by the Business Gateway Team for the Business Community, University and College Students and Senior Phase School Pupils to be motivated, inspired and energized in 2018. 

The theme of the conference is 'if not you, who? If not now, when?' encouraging our delegates to make it happen for themselves!

We are also delighted to welcome to the stage Kristine Moody of Team Magnus. Kristine Moody set up family outdoor gear supplier, Team Magnus, from her Perth base five years ago, and since then has seen the company go from strength to strength. Kristine puts this success down to a number of key factors. First, an innovative product development programme, leading to a steady stream of new and creative products. This, plus a focus on creating an authentic image of the Scottish outdoor lifestyle, especially to people who perhaps yearn to get away from the daily slog of city life have helped Kristine to build the brand.

Collett is co-founder and Managing Director of the newly launched social start-up, Social Stuff Ltd, creators of SQUAD scarf. Based in Aberdeen, the social enterprise manufactures multifunctional snoods for sports supporters and outdoor enthusiasts, with the aim of giving 100% of its profits to charities and good causes.
