Message to BritCham members:

As a proud Scot,  I am also extremely proud of Latvia and what it has to offer and I am more than happy to help share that with those new to Latvia and to also help find ways to help businesses make Latvia an even better place to live and do business. I am not promoting or building my own business nowadays so now it is not about what I get out of this but it is my turn to focus on giving back to others what I have taken from Latvia and the Chamber over the years.
