We had a great time hosting our first social business event at the Tesla showroom in Edinburgh on March 27. The evening was full of networking among like-minded business leaders, learning more about the importance of business continuity, data backups and strong business systems while enjoying some live music, drinks and nibbles. If you were there, thank you again for joining us! We hope you had as much fun as we did.
If you couldn’t make it, here are some key takeaways and pictures for the evening. It’s almost as good as if you’d actually been there – though sadly you won’t be able to try out the delicious snacks and drinks we were treated to by Private Concierge Scotland!
Apart from relaxed socialising to the tune of some live music from Ginny & The Tonic, we also had the chance to enjoy a live demonstration from our friends at Datto. The highlight of this was when Steve Johnstone grabbed a sledgehammer and then proceeded to smash up a laptop, only then to immediately recover all the data from it.
This showed everyone just how important a strong business continuity system is for protecting your company’s important data.
We were also treated to a fascinating chat from Alan Smith, Edinburgh’s premier business coach. He shone some light on technology in the business environment and how important it is to have the correct technology partners.
Feedback from our Tesla event attendees
Thank you for your invitation to your fantastic evening at the Tesla garage – I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thank you for last night’s event – it was a really enjoyable evening and with plenty of information available that I wasn’t aware of so definitely well worth going along to.
– Charlie Cumming, Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust
Thank you for last night. It was very well organised, with a great venue and presentations.
– Lewis Roden, Mitchell Glass Ltd
Thanks very much for last night, it was a very well run event and enjoyed the evening very much. Was great to hear about Onestop and their services. I have a few friends that I will mention the services to.
– Marcus Weurman, Hub South East Scotland
A ‘very well done’ to the team who delivered a very professional and informative evening for all in attendance. Presentations were well received at this end and I will have a review of them and see where our challenges lie.
– Neil Beattie, EVi Charge Points Ltd
Thanks for the invite to your event. It was great to chat with you and I enjoyed the presentations (and the beer). I would be very keen to get a note of the services Ally mentioned in his presentation. The idea of getting genuine staff feedback seemed like an excellent idea.
– Nick Laing, Function Control Ltd.
