Chiene + Tait’s Future Of… series launched

Chiene + Tait has launched a new LinkedIn group aimed at providing a discussion forum to support Scottish businesses in a post-pandemic world. The Future Of… group will bring together experts from across the Scottish and UK business community and will focus on key economic challenges being faced, and how these could be overcome by working collaboratively.

In launching the group, Chiene + Tait Chair, Lena Wilson CBE will deliver a series of Future Of… videos with high-profile speakers. The first video features a discussion with Professor Graeme Roy, Head of Economics at University of Strathclyde and Director of the Fraser of Allander Institute that covers core factors that will impact the speed of economic recovery in Scotland. Further discussions with Professor Roy will appear on the Future Of… LinkedIn group over the coming weeks, with future speakers in the pipeline discussing the future of entrepreneurship, the environment and climate, and Scottish businesses.

The initial session, available from today, features Professor Graeme Roy, Head of Economics and Director of the Fraser of Allander Institute, discussing core factors that will impact the speed of economic recovery in Scotland.

Further sessions will include a post-Covid analysis of entrepreneurship, the environment and climate, and Scottish businesses. The videos will analyse the potential opportunities to emerge after a period of economic stagnation, focusing on finance, business models, leadership and outsourcing.

Commenting on the launch of the Future Of… series, C+T Managing Partner Carol Flockhart said: “The impact of Covid-19 is profound and will be felt for years to come. While this is inevitably creating huge challenges for many businesses and impacting heavily on a number of industry sectors, a crisis of this scale also presents longer term opportunities.

“The Future Of… series is focused on the economic landscape beyond the pandemic, considering where future opportunities may lie and how Scottish businesses can align themselves to ensure they are able to rebuild and benefit from these. We are delighted to have input from some of the UK’s leading business figures whose insights we are pleased to share across the business community.”
