Ayrshire operator is Boston bound

Nick Livingstone, 7 Saints Preswick

AYRSHIRE operator Nick Livingstone jetted to Boston earlier this week to begin the second stage of his Diageo Learning for Life Saltire Fellowship.

Livingstone, who owns 7 Saints in Prestwick, won the Diageo-funded place on the programme back in April.

The first stage of the programme, which is run by Entrepreneurial Scotland, took place earlier this month and included talks from a number of business leaders.

Livingstone and the other Saltire participants will spend the next eight weeks in the US, studying at Babson College and visiting businesses.
