The Scottish Parliament & Business Exchange (SPBE) offer a platform for SME’s to engage with Parliament in a non-lobbying and non-partisan way.
SPBE work with businesses to help them to develop their understanding of how Parliament works and the appropriate and constructive ways the Parliament and Business can work together. This allows businesses to have the opportunity to deliver tailored programmes for Parliamentarians to educate and enlighten them on specific aspects of business.
By registering interest in any of SPBE’s business services you will be contacted by a member of the team to discuss your objectives.
