Date set for Scotland's second Emerging Talent Conference

Scotland's second Emerging Talent Conference will take place at Edinburgh International Conference Centre on 10 February.

Backed by the Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland, the conference will once again invite industry leaders and young people to take part in discussion of the key issues facing the industry.

Guest speakers include chef Nick Nairn and Innocent Drinks co-founder Richard Reed.

The Emerging Talent Conference was launched last year by HIT Scotland in response to a report by recruitment company Chess Partnership, which found employers needed to address the different values and aspirations of the latest generation of workers.

David Cochrane, chief executive of HIT Scotland, said: "One of our main objectives as a charity is to assist people to achieve their potential within Scottish hospitality. The conference does this by providing them with a forum to communicate their views and the opportunity to hear inspirational industry leaders."

The conference will also feature a series of best practice seminars in entrepreneurship, training and service, as well as a chef's seminar.
