The head of the community business network admits he is "excited" as the group celebrates the start of their brand new look with a free event.

Damon Scott, chief of Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce, hopes the official launch of the organisation's new brand identity and website at the Golden Jubilee in September will highlight the good work his group continue to do for local business.

Alongside the Chamber and the NHS Golden Jubilee, Amazon will also be in attendance supporting the event which aims to connect businesses across East and West Dunbartonshire with other local suppliers. 

Mr Scott said: "We are looking forward to a fantastic evening with lots of opportunities for our members, partners and local businesses.

"We are thrilled to launch the Chamber’s new brand and website and share the new services and benefits available to members.

"The exciting partnerships with the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, Highland Reserve Forces & Cadets Association (HRFCA) and Amazon will provide more valuable supply chain and skills opportunities.

"There will also be good representation from our partners and members who will share the additional benefits they can offer to businesses."

The free event will also highlight the ChamberFORCE programme, which promotes the benefits of supporting the Armed Forces community and the valuable array of transferable skills they offer. 

The Chamber, NHS Golden Jubilee and Amazon all hold the Gold ERS Award, having demonstrated their commitment to supporting the Armed Forces.

Jamie Strain, general manager at Amazon Dunfermline, said: “Amazon are delighted to support this event as part of the ChamberFORCE Armed Forces Programme along with two fellow Gold ERS Award holders.

"Amazon are committed to supporting the Armed Forces community and actively employ and support ex-service personnel and reservists.”

Guests will have the opportunity to connect with the Golden Jubilee team who have committed to expanding their network of local suppliers whilst sampling the delicious street-food and mocktails prepared by the hotel’s talented chefs.

The Launch and Showcase Event takes place on Thursday, September 21, and is open to all businesses interested in finding out more about the opportunities and Chamber membership.
