Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, joined highland business women at Lochaber Chamber of Commerce’s ‘Women in Business Networking Lunch’ in Fort William last Thursday.

Following on from the success of their first women’s networking lunch during last November’s Lochaber Ideas Week, the Chamber once again hosted an event that brought the women of Lochaber together for
an inspirational talk and an invaluable networking opportunity over a delicious lunch at the Moorings Hotel.

Liz Cameron is a senior business leader in Scotland with expertise in all business areas. With a career spanning three decades, Liz is at the forefront of Scottish business, recognised as one of the most powerful forces in the business community. After successfully establishing and running several small businesses, Liz took the helm of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce in 2004.

Through SCC, Liz has spearheaded business growth initiatives including Scotland’s very first education/business partnership, a National Graduate Recruitment Initiative and the innovative International Trade and Exporting Partnership.

Lisa Wharton, Communications and events manager at Lochaber Chamber of Commerce, said: ‘Liz Cameron is a big hitter in Scottish business; with expertise in all business areas and her finger on the pulse of business issues that affect us all.

‘As CEO of the Scottish Chambers, she represents the network of 29 chambers around the country. We were lucky to have Liz here with us to visit members and attend our board meeting, as well as talk at the lunch.

‘Her passion and energy for promoting Scotland as a great place to live, work and study was an inspiration to us all.’
