2.5 billion people don’t have a loo

That’s 40% of the world’s population folks.

We were looking for international humanitarian projects that we could support. We didn’t have a big budget or resources for a large campaign, but even still, we wanted to make a difference.

New incentive ideas in a modern Scotland

What do you think when you hear ‘Scotland’?

Kilts, whisky, history, heritage, bagpipes…Braveheart? Yes these are all correct, and together – as many of you know – they make a great recipe for a memorable incentive trip.

What does the 'Address to a Haggis' really mean?

What does the 'Address to a Haggis' really mean?

This weekend the world will celebrate the life and works of Scotland's most iconic writer and poet, Rabbie Burns. Every year, in and around the 25th January - the poets birthday and his national day - the famous words of the Address to a Haggis ring out across Scotland, and the world. Perhaps not his most well-known word; this would probably be Auld Lang Syne or the Selkirk Grace; but nonetheless, a fitting tribute to our national dish. And one the Bill recites regularly for groups!

Perhaps you're hosting or planning your own Burns supper this weekend. Or maybe you've travelled to Scotland and heard it recited. A dramatic and emotive ceremonious occasion...but what do the words really mean in modern English?
