Dundee Launch

We recently enjoyed the launch of CeeD in Dundee and the East as Business Development Manager, David Nicholson held the first in a series of open meetings for the area.


Held at University of Dundee, we welcomed a host of businesses and local government to listen as Geoff Crowley, Highland Colour Coaters, spoke about the topic of Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), presenting a recent Highland KTP case study. Further to this, Paul Fletcher, Enabling Innovation, highlighted to the CeeD audience, the importance of innovation, particularly innovative thinking in business.


The event was very successful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved - we look forward to the next one!


Edinburgh & Lothians Launch


Newest addition to the CeeD team, Ralph Harkess, is set to host the first open meeting for Edinburgh and the Lothians, where he will welcome Craig Cowles of AG Barr.  Craig will present Barr's unique Glasgow 2014 story, detailing one of their largest and most successful campaigns to date.
