Glasgow is playing host to a week long festival looking at ethics and in particular their importance and significance in a business context. I am pleased to say I shall be speaking at and event called “How to fund your business ethically – a look at funding, finance and investment’”
The session takes place on Friday 4th December 2 – 5pm at CitizenM Hotel, 60 Renfrew Street, Glasgow G2 3BW
Featured speakers including myself will be
Kevin Cadman, Chief Executive of Grameen in the UK bringing the worldwide renowned ‘group lending’ Grameen Bank methodology to the West of Scotland and then the UK.
Kenny MacLeod, Chief Executive Officer of Scotwest Credit Union with 30,000 members and £60m in assets one of the biggest credit unions in Britain.
Julian Parrott, founding Partner of Ethical Futures providing ethical financial planning advice to private clients, trusts & charities throughout Scotland and who currently sits on the ethical oversight committee of Parmenion Investment Management.
This promises to be a fascinating session and I am really looking forward to exploring particularly the ethical dimensions of alternative finance, and it a privileged to be asked to participate alongside such exceptional panellists. As I have said many times before, by bringing a wider group of participants into the investment and financing process we can and should embrace a much broader range of motivations for participants.
The event is free and I encourage to book early if you want to attend.
