“I am delighted to be leading the reinstated Outer Hebrides Chamber of Commerce working with our Board of Directors.
With backing from the Scottish Chambers and support from HIE, the local chapter of the Chamber has been reignited with a focus on building a solid foundation of membership across all industries. With this foundation in place, we will have a platform to discuss and lobby for issues impacting the business community and support the economic growth of our region well into the future.
