Enterprising events are big business

LOTHIAN businesses are set to benefit from a two-week programme of events designed to help them grow and prosper.

The Edinburgh & Lothian Business Fortnight, from November 15-26, has been organised by Business Gateway and features more than 20 different events, seminars and workshops.

The programme, which builds on the success of the former Enterprise Week, will give entrepreneurs an opportunity to pick up tips on day-to-day business basics, find out how working with public bodies can give firms a competitive edge and network at awards ceremonies and a dinner.
