Andrew Bowie MP, Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party, was today a special guest at the BNI Aberdeen North meeting.
During the Zoom gathering, Mr Bowie, Conservative and Unionist Party Member of Parliament for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine, engaged with BNI Aberdeen North members and listened to their concerns for the short and long-term futures of their businesses.
Andrew Bowie MP said: “ I was very pleased to join the Aberdeen North BNI meeting this morning. It was incredibly useful to be able to hear the issues and concerns facing businesses in and around the region at such a difficult and uncertain time.
“Businesses across the North East are determined to overcome the present difficulties and I was glad to be able to discuss how Government are attempting to support them and to take back to the UK Government their views and thoughts for how we might improve and expand the support we have already put in place.
“I hope to join them again in the near future for what, I hope, will be a regular discussion.”
Angela Kinghorn executive director at BNI Scotland North, said; “This was an ideal opportunity for Mr Bowie to discover at first hand the issues facing north-east businesses due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was a proactive and pragmatic discussion and we appreciate Mr Bowie taking the time to engage with our members.”
The invitation to the MP was the idea of Deborah McCombie, a chartered marketeer and MD at DXD Media. For further information on business networking at BNI, please visit http://bniscotlandnorth.com/en-GB/index
