Join us for an evening of networking and a review of the year's work, as well as discussions around plans for the year to come. The evening will follow the Scottish Government's 'Year Theme' of Food & Drink.
Opening the event is RSA Chief Executive Matthew Taylor, who will be talking about current and forthcoming RSA projects and initiatives.
Following this, there will be a Q&A Session, the panel for which will include RSA Scotland Elected Officers Tanya Hine (Fellowship Council Member) and Ann Packard (Chairman) plus Jamie Cooke (Head of Scotland). We will be emailing Fellows with a report shortly before the meeting, for the opportunity to submit relevant questions.
Following the theme of Food Drink, we will then hear a selection of 'provocations'; one by Matt Fountain, RSA Fellow, regarding his proposed in-prison social enterprise bakery project; another by Josh Littlejohn, entrepreneur, who founded Social Bite; and a third by Pete Ritchie, founding director of NOURISH SCOTLAND.
Pete is also a first generation farmer at Whitmuir, a diversified farm business in the Borders.
The fourth brief "provocation" is in process of confirmation.
The conference will conclude at 8pm.
This event is free but please do book your place.
