Tuesday 26th March 2019
08.00 – 09.30, Indigo, 27 Maritime Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6SE
In the week of the UK’s Brexit deadline Indigo is hosting a special breakfast seminar for business and third sector leaders wanting to operate with greater confidence amid political uncertainty in Scotland and across the UK.
We are delighted that Mark Diffley, one of Scotland’s leading political polling experts and analysts, will be our guest speaker. A former Director of Ipsos MORI in Scotland, Mark now runs one of Scotland’s fastest growing social and political research company, providing reliable, objective opinion gathering services to leading businesses, third sector organisations and campaigns.
Mark is a regular contributor on polling to broadcasters including BBC Scotland and STV, as well as leading print outlets like The Times, Scotsman and New Statesman. He is also an external advisor to Progress Scotland, a high profile initiative led by former SNP Westminster group leader Angus Robertson to better understand how people’s views have been changing in Scotland since the independence referendum and the Scottish majority vote to remain in the EU.
Mark will be joined by Indigo’s Director of Public Affairs Peter Smyth who will look at what the turbulent political landscape means from a client perspective and how organisations can look to manage it with greater confidence.
The event will conclude with a Q&A session.
Access to this free event is limited, so please email Felicity MacFarlane at email@example.com to confirm your attendance by Friday 15 March.
