The STV Growth Academy returns next week!

At STV, we are committed to providing the tools that allow Scottish businesses to thrive. This is why we run free events designed to help businesses grow. We launched our hugely popular STV Growth Academy sessions in November 2018 to support the next generation of Scottish businesses with the tools to support their continued growth. Our Growth Academy sessions feature both guest speakers and STV experts, themed on subjects such as marketing, communications, professional services and sales to support businesses in their growth objectives. Events are attended typically by startup businesses, however the Academy is open to all and is always positively received:

“What a lovely team at STV – seriously the best event I have been to in a while.”

The evolution of the STV Growth Academy

This year, we took our STV Growth Academy online and we are now running free monthly webinars for attendees from different backgrounds such as Scottish media agencies, start-ups and SMEs. Our last two virtual webinars have received over 150 sign ups and have followed themes of maximising creativity in building brand awareness and the importance of building a mentally healthy workplace. You can catch up on previous sessions at: 

How can you get involved?
Our next webinar focuses on the theme of expanding your network and connecting with new customers with our fantastic lineup of speakers including Russell Dalgleish, Chairman of Scottish Business Network; Gordon White, Managing Director of fatBuzz; and Sandy Kennedy, Chief Executive of Entrepreneurial Scotland Foundation.

STV and Scotland House
Scotland House are situated very close to our STV London office - the perfect neighbours! We are excited to utilise the Scotland House venue in the future for hosting our own events, as well as attending some of Scotland House’s networking sessions. Working with Scotland House is a fantastic opportunity for STV to share what we can do to help grow and celebrate brilliant businesses across Scotland.
