Eminent market analyst Nick Parsons returns to Ayr this week to update members of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle about the current state of the international financial markets, and the Scottish, UK and world economies.
Members who were privileged to have been at the Circle meetings previously addressed by Nick Parsons in July 2008 and in March last year will be relishing the opportunity of hearing his no-nonsense, no-holds-barred approach to economic realities once again.
His talk this week will be even more topical than ever, as Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling will have presented his 2010 Budget the previous day.
Nick Parsons will be speaking at the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle meeting on Thursday 25 March 2010 at 11.30am. The meeting will be held in the boardroom of the Clydesdale Bank Financial Solutions Centre in Alloway Street, Ayr, kindly arranged and hosted by managing partner Willie Mackie. A buffet lunch will be provided.
Elite Ayrshire Business Circle members and guests are all invited, and business people throughout Ayrshire are welcome to attend this open meeting.
Members of the media are also invited to attend and cover the event.
Elite Ayrshire Business Circle executive chairman and Frazer Coogans Solicitors senior partner Norman Geddes said: “We are delighted to welcome Nick Parsons back to Ayrshire, where he has previously met with Ayrshire businesses and shared with them his thoughts on the UK and global economies. We are very keen to keep our members fully informed regarding the wider economic situation, and I am sure Nick will encourage healthy debate once again this week.”
