Pathfinder, together with Causeway, host Scottish Minister at Leaders Dinner Event.

A fascinating evening with the Scottish Minister for the UK Negotiations on Scotland’s Place in Europe, discussing Brexit at the RDS.
The 8th event in Pathfinders Leaders Dinner Series took place on Wednesday 13th June, where we were honoured to host Mike Russell, the Scottish Parliament Minister for the UK Negotiations on Scotland’s place in Europe, with Causeway: Ireland Scotland Business Network.

Before entering the Scottish Parliament, Mike 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.

As can be imagined, as the evening was held “In Camera” the Minister provided a most succinct and honest appraisal on Scotland’s position and ambitions at this sensitive time.

After the Dinner Mike took a Q&A session from the Guests and the evening finished with Tom Byrne thanking The Minister, John Webster and his team at the Embassy and commented on the fact that Pathfinder are proud sponsors of Causeway, The Scottish Irish Business network.
