Fire Up Scotland has teamed up with Glasgow’s SEC to produce the biggest event of inspiration the country has seen in over 50 years.
The venue will play host to 12,000 S4, 5 and 6 students and teachers from across Scotland in what has been described as ‘TEDx meets The Fringe’ on 12 September. The event was founded by award-winning entrepreneur and author Gavin Oattes.
Presenters, speakers and performers from all over the world will be challenging you to be the best you can and proving there’s no wrong path to a positive destination.
