Scottish Summit – summary

We are just done with one incredible weekend in Glasgow for Scottish Summit. This is one of the best events I have ever attended! Well organized and a crazy amount of people in one day.


The two great guys behind the entire event, Iain Connolly and Mark Christie kicked off the event looking amazing in Scottish Summit custom kilts!

Neil Benson

If you ever need to present a 90 minute session in 45 minutes you need to speak at the speed of light – and that’s exactly what Neil Benson did for his session. Neil traveled all the way from Australia to be part of this epic event. It was great hearing about the way he works with projects!

Managing and Marketing Scottish Summit using ClickDimensions?

Emma D’arcy

The super enthusiastic Emma D’Arcy showed how she used ClickDimensions to run the marketing for Scottish Summit. It’s a great way to see how you can utilize ClickDimensions the right way.


One of the best things about this community are the people in it. There are so many amazing people that I’m happy to call my friends. Speaker dinner, pub quiz, after party and about a million hugs, there still wasn’t enough time!

A massive thank you to Iain Connolly and Mark Christie for arranging this event, I know it has taken a crazy amount of time and effort and I really appreciate being a part of this!
