THE SOCIAL NETWORK

On the evening of Wednesday 17 November, social networking was on the agenda for Advanced Higher Business Management pupils.  Aileen McKnight, Rachael Weir and Christina Laing joined the Business Education staff, Mr Dempster, Mrs Ferguson, Mr McFarlane and Mr Flood, for a viewing of The Social Network at Ocean Terminal in Edinburgh.

The evening was a great success where everyone gained further insight into the foundation of FaceBook Inc and Mark Zuckerberg's role as an entrepreneur. Many examples were demonstrated in the film which will be useful in discussion throughout the Advanced Higher Business Management course: different managerial styles, leadership, motivation, working as part of a team and the conflicts within that team, and changes that occur as a enterprise grows into a company with worldwide influence.

A fantastic evening, enjoyed by all concerned.
