Ayrshire Business Women invite you to their October Business Networking Event on Tuesday the 8th October 2019 at The Marine Hotel in Troon. The Marine Hotel is located on the beautiful coastline with bespoke views over the Royal Troon Golf Club and breath taking views over to the Isle of Arran.
We are delighted to have Alison Blair Director at Buzzworks Holdings as guest speaker.
Alison Blair, alongside her brothers Colin and Kenny, has been instrumental in building local business, Buzzworks Holdings, into one of Scotland’s largest and most successful independent restaurant and bar companies - operating 11 venues throughout Ayrshire and beyond.
With more than four decades of experience in the hospitality and licenced trade, Alison has overseen people development within the family business, operating within the premium casual dining sector, raising staffing levels from just eight in 1978 to over 500 team members and a turnover of £22 million plus today.
Staff development has always been Alison’s passion and she has been integral in helping to build Buzzworks’ enviable reputation as a top employer within Scotland. So much so, the business has been named within The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for three years in a row.
Alison also believes in her own continuous self-development and is a member of Vistage UK, working with likeminded individuals keen to further their own skills set in leadership, mentoring and problem solving within a business setting.
Outside of work, Alison is an avid dancer, outdoor swimmer and is heavily involved in a lively book club. She is also a proud mother of two young adults, and one young dog who keep Alison on her toes.
