Glasgow has a new City Government with a manifesto to deliver for the people of the city.  The new Leader, Susan Aitken has personally taken on the convenorship for achieving Inclusive Growth and has been actively engaging with the business community to communicate her City Government’s vision. Glasgow has a plan for growing its economy in a very challenging context.

We welcome back Stuart Patrick, Chief Executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce who will give his perspective on where Glasgow is heading and what this may mean for our business community. There is much yet to be done but solid grounds for optimism.

At the September Communications Breakfast you will have an opportunity to discuss what you would like to see happen to your city.
