- Power to Connect – Ben Thomson one of Scotland’s leading business personalities, Chair of the think tank Reform Scotland and Chair of Noble Group Investment Bank, will outline proposals for a transport super-hub as part of a vision to give the country one of the best transport networks in the world.
- Business Needs and High Speed Rail – Graham Bell of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce will explain why Scotland’s capital city needs faster rail connections
