As the referendum debate gains increasing momentum, we have called upon MSPs from both campaigns to present their cases and debate the future of Scotland. We are hosting a Referendum Debate breakfast?on the 1st of May, specifically aimed at the SME community.
With the majority of engagement to date having been with business leaders of Scotland?s largest companies, WeDO has invited Fergus Ewing MSP & Minister for Energy, Enterprise & Tourism from the Yes campaign and Iain Gray MSP & former leader of the Scottish Labour Party from the No campaign to be on the panel at their debate. The event is taking place on May 1 at ?at?Howies Restaurant?on Waterloo Place in Edinburgh?and will be chaired by Bill Jamieson, founder of Scot-Buzz and former Executive Editor of The Scotsman.
Belinda Roberts, founder of WeDO commented:
?The issues which face large companies in Scotland, for the most part, are different from those of the SME community. With the ongoing growth of SMEs, their contribution to the Scottish economy is becoming increasingly important. Many quite simply don?t feel well enough informed to make a decision regarding independence.
By hosting this breakfast, we will help arm SME business leaders with the facts to make informed choices by understanding the key points from both sides of the fence. We are delighted that both Mr Ewing and Mr Gray are showing their support.? she added.
