Our Inspiring Women in Business lunches invite Scotland's leading ladies to share their story of business success.

In November, we are delighted to welcome Nicky Reid, CEO at SPFL Trust to speak and you're invited to join us.

Nicky Reid has over 10 years’ experience in Scottish Professional Football with a primary focus on sport for change. Nicky is passionate about the ability of sport to engage those who are often hardest to each – and most importantly, to do so effectively.
 
As well as the funding and delivery of community projects, in recent years Nicky has also overseen the rapid expansion of the Football Fans in Training programme to almost 50 clubs across Europe, whilst developing and implementing a new strategy for the organisation.  A key focus of this new strategy is the delivery of outcomes around mental health and is an area that has significantly grown over the last eighteen months.
 
Whilst project areas have a clear alignment National Strategic Outcomes, capacity building across clubs has also been key.
 
Nicky and her team draw from their experience at club and league level to support clubs to grow and develop. Importantly, the experience of the team also includes years spent in the public and third sector in areas such as equality and diversity, criminal justice and the arts.
 
Central to the work of the SPFL Trust is the understanding that football plays a unique role in our society, and as such is a powerful tool through which we can help to meet the identified social needs of the people of Scotland.
 
We look forward to welcoming you to our Inspiring Women in Business lunch this Novemeber, with Nicky Reid, CEO at SPFL Trust.
