WHAT IS SCILLY BUSINESS WEEK?
Scilly Business Week was established by the Islands’ Partnership in 2015 following feedback from visitors (both leisure and business) to Scilly about improving the overall offer and experiences on the islands. This is especially important with visitor numbers growing again, many of whom have expectations that are ever more demanding. The week was designed to help businesses gain a better understanding of and more confidence in delivering a service or selling a product that manages (indeed, exceeds) our customers’ and visitors’ expectations.
In the years since, Scilly Business Week has evolved to incorporate strategic presentations and keynote speeches from business leaders in their fields, feature “hot topic” workshops and showcase the latest businesses on Scilly and the work of the Islands’ Partnership. It is also one of the biggest networking events for businesses across the islands, which has proved very welcome ahead of the “season” getting underway.
