An event for women in business at the newly-opened Bearsden Hub was a sell-out success.

This first Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce Women in Business event attracted around 50 guests and was hosted by Dunbartonshire’s multi-award winning social media guru, Gillian Dick.

The networking seminar launched a programme of events targeted at women in business and those thinking about going into business in Dunbartonshire.

There was an excellent opportunity to network before a fascinating presentation from Scottish businesswoman, Marianne Meehan of Alterity, who gave an insight into her experience across number of sectors and shared some of the techniques she uses as a successful business transformation leader.

Damon Scott, Chief Executive, Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “It was a great start to this series and we hope to build on the success in the future.

“The feedback was extremely positive so there is certainly a demand for this type of event and it is an area high on the agenda of the Scottish Government.”

The event was run in conjunction with Business Gateway and RBS and was also supported by local tea room café who provided their own-cooked cakes and buffet.
