SFE Public Affairs & Communications Forum – Youth Guarantee Event

Date: Thursday 27 August

Time: 3pm – 4pm

We are delighted to invite all SFE members to our next Public Affairs & Communications Forum for a discussion on the Youth Guarantee, which was one of the of the main recommendations of the Advisory Group on Economic Recovery.

We are pleased to be joined by two guest speakers - Sandy Begbie CBE, who is developing the Youth Guarantee implementation plan on behalf of the Scottish Government, and Barry Connolly, Chair of SFE’s Skills and Talent Group.

The Guarantee is a key focus of the Scottish Government and this discussion will provide an excellent opportunity for members to ask questions of Sandy and Barry and to better understand how financial and professional services can support the delivery of this policy.

He is a Trustee of Place 2 Be and is a Senior Advisor to Standard Life Asia Board. Sandy led the Developing the Young Workforce Group in Edinburgh, East Lothian and Midlothian and helped design the Edinburgh Guarantee for young people. He was awarded the CBE in 2018 for services to business and social mobility and inclusion.
