MBN Solutions is proud to announce that our CEO Michael Young has been selected as Chairman of the APSCo Scottish Business Forum.  Supported by three meetings a year, the Scottish Business Forum is held in Edinburgh with the inaugural event taking place on Tuesday 17th March 2015.  The purpose of the first meeting will be to address the following headline question;

The Scottish Government has, this month updated its economic plan which talks of a need to invest in infrastructure and skills, fostering innovation, promote inclusive growth and take advantage of international opportunities.  What specific action would recruiters like to see? And why?

In his role as chair, Michael will be outlining the forums objectives, as well as hosting a roundtable discussion to review responses.  Presentations will be delivered by Steve Turner, International Trade Advisor, Scottish Development International and Mark McMullen, Head of Company Growth, Scottish Enterprise. Michael commented, “We have been a member of APSCo for years now and I’ve always been impressed by the work that they do; not only providing support for many recruitment firms but also the events and forums that they host throughout the year.”

“I’d like to give something back and put my experience in recruitment to good use.  Volunteering with APSCo, with its trusted reputation and quality membership, struck me as being the best way to achieve this.  I’m hoping that by chairing the Forum, I might be able to positively “disrupt” in a small way – driving forward the initiatives that I believe will benefit our members and the industry as a whole.”
