SBN Newscast ft. Pamela Crawford and Jonny Downie


· SBN Newscast

This week we were joined by Pamela Crawford of the University of Stirling and Jonny Downie, London Relationship Ambassador to SBN - as well as a featured video from Ian Houston outlining our donations campaign.

Pamela Crawford joined the show to talk about the fully funded short courses available to help develop your career and gain in-demand skills. The University of Stirling are committed to helping those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, so we're offering hundreds of free places to anyone living in Scotland.

Our Second Guest was Jonny Downie, London Relationship Ambassador for Scottish Business Network. Jonny connected with SBN after hosting us for an event in January 2020 and his new role see's him being very hands on with members looking to enter the London market, or indeed the Scottish Diaspora in London reconnecting with Scotland.

Connect with Jonny on LinkedIn and hopefully meetup with him and our London community this Autumn:
