Description

Welcome to the Amazon Academy Scotland 2019

Following the success of Amazon Academy events in Scotland over the past 3 years, it's now back for 2019.

As a small business owner (or someone thinking of starting your own business), you will learn how to use the power of the internet and technology to grow your company, boost productivity and export sales and improve the customer experience. SMEs ranging from e-commerce businesses, web developers and new startups will be in attendance to hear from a range of speakers who will provide ‘how to’ advice and insights, as well as discussing some of the broader issues facing businesses today. Attendees will also have the chance to go behind the scenes of Amazon's fulfilment centre during the day.

What happens on the day?

In the morning, you'll be able to find out how you can make the most of the digital opportunity as a small business, with insight from Amazon, Enterprise Nation and other independent experts and successful entrepreneurs.

Ever wondered how Amazon delivers for its customers? Event attendees can go on a behind the scenes tour of Amazon Dunfermline's fulfilment centre and see what happens when you click ‘buy’ on Amazon.co.uk. Attendees can choose from either a pre event tour from 8.30am in the morning or a lunchtime tour offered from 1pm.

Tours will begin every 15 minutes and will last 30 minutes. All guests must wear flat, closed-toe and closed-heel shoes (no sandals or high heels). We recommend wearing comfortable shoes/trainers. Hair which falls below the shoulders should be tied back.

You'll also enjoy a networking lunch with fellow entrepreneurs and experts.
