Women Ahead are delighted to to have been invited to attend this fantastic event by Affiliate ASB Member club, Scottish Women in Business (SWIB), who are offering attendance for Women Ahead members at their own member rates! As this is such a fantastic opportunity for our members we will be meeting the bus costs for our members who wish to attend.

SWIB are pleased to host this debate allowing women business owners and professionals to question Scotland's leading female politicians face to face about Scotland's future.

Given that 18 September 2014 heralds the most important referendum decision in Scotland's political history, this is your opportunity to put your questions to the women at the heart of the debate. The debate will be chaired by well-known TV presenter, Sally Magnusson.

With ballots before and after the debate, this will be a unique opportunity to directly gauge the views of an important voting audience.
