London calling Special Edition

The Special Edition group travelled to London this March to meet inspiring women from the world of digital and tech.

From start-ups like Upgrade Pack to global businesses like Spotify and Virgin Media, the group met with senior executives to discuss loyalty, leadership and the importance of listening to your instincts.

The Special Edition programme was created to address the lack of women at board-level in the digital and tech sector in Scotland. This trip is part of a six month development programme that seeks to boost participants’ confidence, improve entrepreneurial skills, expand professional networks and progress their career in digital.

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s the Special Edition’s favourite part of the trip in their own words…


“The sheer diversity of wonderfully inspiring ladies – the perfect blend of experience, wisdom, entrepreneurship and sheer business acumen.”

Suzanne Bennett


“The chance to ask these amazing women questions and have time for my own reflection. I also loved seeing how others in the group benefited.”

Kirstin Watson


“(We are) amazingly lucky we are to have been picked to go on this course. It’s been amazing.”
