Swansea Bay Business Club ‘Burns Night’ a Success


Business Club Burns Night a Success

Swansea Bay Business Club hosted another popular networking event this week, as Scottish Entrepreneur John Burns shared his experiences as a Scot, living and working in Wales, for the Burns Night evening networking event.

Guests were greeted by the sound of bagpipes as they arrived for the night of networking at the Marriott Hotel, Swansea. A meal of traditional Scottish fayre was then served as the haggis was presented on a silver platter and led into the room by the piper, as tradition dictates.

John Burns, of Burns Pet Food, spoke to guests about his years in business and his passion for pet nutrition, following his move to Wales in 1971.

Veterinary surgeon, qualified acupuncturist and the founder and owner of Burns Pet Nutrition, John’s knowledge of his industry and concern for animal welfare led him to develop a pet food which was convenient and would help manage pet health problems, adding the title of successful entrepreneur to his already impressive list of accolades.

President of Swansea Bay Business Club, Hayley Davies, comments:

“We were very pleased to have John join us. His fascinating career and business principles provided an interesting evening for the business community of Swansea.  For many of our attendees, it was their first time experiencing the grand entrance of the haggis – the crowning glory of any traditional Burns Supper, and we are delighted so many of our guests enjoyed the night in honour of our Celtic cousins.”

The next Swansea Business Club event will take place on March 1st, St David’s Day, with guest speaker, Welsh rugby legend Ryan Jones., at Parc Y Scarlets in Llanelli
