Sage Scaleup Summit

Join industry experts, local businesses and partnerships sharing insights on overcoming the challenges to ‘scaling up’

Venue: The Edinburgh International Conference Centre, EH3 8EE
Date: Wed Oct 2nd : 8:30 - 16:30

In 2014, Sherry Coutu’s ‘Scale-Up Report’ revealed that although the UK was very good at starting businesses, it wasn’t very good at helping them grow or ‘scale up’ compared to other countries.

Business growth isn’t linear. Whether you’re in a period of rapid expansion, or you’ve grown steadily over several years, your business tools and processes may have become disjointed to seamlessly cover all areas of your operations while providing you with valuable insights.

We believe Sage is uniquely placed to help your business become a scaleup* by using our network of business experts and our technology as the enabler to better, faster working practices that will streamline all of your business operations, from supply chain to business intelligence, accounting processes and stock management.

To do this, we would like to invite you to join us at one of our exclusive ‘Sage Scaleup Summits’ to experience the following:

  • Arrivals / networking + Tech Space Demo Area
  • Introduction & welcome from Senior Sage Executive
  • Opening keynote on why the UK needs more scaleups & how the local area compares nationally
  • Panel discussion on the challenges to ‘scaling up’
  • Lunch + Tech Space Demo Area
  • How, when & why Sage technology can save time, reduce human error, increase efficiencies & accelerate growth (with particular focus on moving from Sage 50 to Sage 200)
  • Partner Panel Discussion on the benefits of upgrading to Sage 200
  • Inspirational keynote speaker talking about leadership, resilience & team excellence for growth.

 

*The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development) defines a ‘scaleup’ as an enterprise with average annual growth or turnover greater than 20% per annum over 3 consecutive years & with more than 10 employees at the beginning of the period.
