Partner Events

We recently launched a Partner Events section on the website, whereby member companies, or companies who have a close association with CeeD, can advertise their forthcoming events, allowing them to reach the extensive CeeD audience.

As part of CeeD's member login area, members will soon be able to upload the details of these events on their own - until such times, please contact Victoria at v.souter@ceed-scotland.com with the details of the event.

To view our calendar of events and to register for any of the events, please visit Partner Events.


At the beginning of 2014, CeeD launched a new business management programme, Growth500, aimed at helping SMEs in Scotland to achieve sustainable growth over a realistic period.

Covering topics such as Marketing & Strategic Planning, Leadership & People, Technology & Legal and Sales - amongst others - the programme is split into 4 manageable intakes with 10 sessions over 12 months.

The programme has been very successful thus far, attracting a diverse audience from a broad range of sectors.  If you are interested in joining Growth500 or require more information about the content, you should visit www.ceed-scotland.com/clinics/growth500 or contact Kevin at k.horn@ceed-scotland.com.
