News Scotland

SENIOR figures from the worlds of business, technology and culture will gather in Dundee next week to discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by the City of Discovery in the face of disruptive economic, social, and political forces.

Gillian Easson of Creative Dundee, Chris van der Kuyl of 4J Studios, and Philip Long of V&A Dundee are the panellists at a seminar being hosted by The Times Scotland and chaired by the newspaper’s columnist and senior writer, Kenny Farquharson, a proud Dundonian himself.

The event, being held at the city’s Malmaison hotel on Thursday morning (November 9) is the third in a series of four debates taking place in cities across Scotland on the topic of ‘The Future of Scotland: Cities Facing Forward’.

The series of seminars, sponsored by Addleshaw Goddard, visited Glasgow and Edinburgh last month and will culminate at The Chester Hotel in Aberdeen on December 7.

Magnus Llewellin, editor of The Times Scotland, said: “This series underlines the determination of The Times Scotland to be at the heart of the national conversation. We are creating a crucible for imaginative new thinking and I am delighted that leaders in business, culture, academia and civic life have agreed to share their thoughts and experiences with audiences around Scotland.”
