The Invest in Perth Ambassadors represent a diverse range of sectors active across the wider city region. These local business leaders promote the city region and its opportunities whenever possible.

The programme improves communication and collaboration between Perth & Kinross Council, its public partners and the private sector as we work together to develop the region as the perfect place to live, work, invest and visit.

The objectives of the Programme are:

  • To encourage and support businesses to promote the Perth City Region and its investment opportunities nationally and internationally; highlighting the area as a high quality business location and an attractive proposition for inward investment.
  • To encourage and support businesses to promote the area as a business and conference destination through their own networks.
  • To increase collaboration and communication with local industry – across all sectors and representative of all scales – to allow public sector partners to fully support their growth and development needs.
  • To benefit from the experience and expertise of Ambassadors and their businesses in shaping the city's future development.
  • To work with businesses to support bids and pitches for major projects and investments in the city region through provision of supporting statements, information and, potentially, at meetings and high profile events.
  • To encourage private sector buy-in to the aims of the Invest in Perth initiative.
  • To generate regular positive stories about the city region through celebrating these businesses success and achievements and tying that success to the city region's own messaging.
