John Mackenzie of HIE’s enterprising solutions team, said: “We want to encourage businesses to transform their attitudes and mindsets to adopt new approaches to continuous business improvement and to give confidence in the use of technologies.

“The workshop gives us the opportunity to talk about a number of business transformation programmes that are currently running and the benefits that can be derived from new companies keen to undertake all or part of these programmes.
