Getting there

Please note, Google Maps will show the address as ‘2 the Vennel’ – this is wrong, you’re looking for this building:

The road below called ‘The Vennel’ is actually Stoneycroft Road. DO NOT try to park down it you’ll likely get stuck! You can park for free on Station Road, marked below:

Parking – You can park for free on Station Road, then walk down the hill to Getgo.

Train – Dalmeny Station is a 15-20 minute walk. It’s very straight-forward using a map app. Very frequent service from Haymarket and Waverley.

Bus – The Lothian Country, no. 43 from Edinburgh city centre stops on ‘The Loan’ that you can see on the maps in this doc.

What to bring:

– Your phone
– A tonne of energy

Your homework

As part of the course, you’ll have a 15 min slot in-front of the Getgo cameras. The aim of this is to record a 2 minute max video. Ideally, you’d know what you want to record in advance. Some ideas:

  • Your ‘why’ – why did you start your business or why do you what you do?
  • 5 tips – give 5 tips that give value to your desired audience
  • Topic focus – go into detail on one aspect/topic of what you do

Please don’t write a script! Just have bullet-points of each key point you need to make.

Lunch

A sandwich lunch is provided. As is coffee/tea and cake. Lots of it.

Looking forward to having you on the course! Any issues, please call me on 07807356677.
