Register your interest today and we'll get in touch as soon as more information about the next series becomes available later this year. 

In the mean time, have a look at some of our previous programmes below. In 2019 we had a look at the themes of Wellness - how holiday makers are looking for an escape that includes health and well-being, and Speak Scotland - how tourism businesses can harness the power of our native languages to help increase visitor numbers.

Speak Scotland - harness the power of our native languages

In this fast-moving consumer marketplace, Scotland needs to continually make the most of its distinctive strengths and keep up with growing competition. Many visitors who come to Scotland to learn more about our history and culture - and in 2018, we responded with an exciting initiative. 

Our recent series of webinars, Speak Scotland, has finished but we’re busy turning the videos into a toolkit so don't worry if you missed the live series.

For businesses looking to offer something unique, the traditional languages of Gaelic and Scots are a fantastic resource. Harnessing the power of our native languages enables you to:

  • offer your guests and customers a unique and authentic experience
  • attract new customers and open up international markets
  • stay one step ahead of the competition
