Since 2015, Pathfinder has been proud to run a series of informative, relaxed and topical dinner events for our valued clients and partners. This Spring in Scotland is no different – we are excited to host Mike Russell and hear from him on his career to date, where he sees opportunities from the Scotland and Ireland relationship, and the impact of Brexit.
Mike Russell is the Minister for UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe. Mike has previously served as Regional Member of the Scottish Parliament representing the South of Scotland.
Before entering the Scottish Parliament, he worked in a variety of media sectors including television, he has been a national newspaper and magazine columnist, and has written seven books, including one novel.
When the SNP entered Government in 2007, he became Minister for Environment, and was subsequently Minister for Culture, External Affairs and the Constitution, before becoming Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning in December 2009, a post he held until November 2014.
Partner at Pathfinder, Tom Byrne, is the Regional Chair for Ireland at Causeway Ireland Scotland Business Exchange. Causeway is a not-for-profit membership organisation that provides a high-level forum for businesses to build relationships and expand their networks across both sides of the Irish Sea. With Pathfinder having offices in both Dublin and Edinburgh, Tom realised the importance of developing contacts between the two countries in these strange times and was delighted to be invited to join Causeway.
We look forward to welcoming Minister Mike Russell.
