Last week, Northern light took part as a delegate on Lochaber Chamber of Commerce’s first virtual trade mission to Nova Scotia. In the ever changing world we have found ourselves in technology has become a key tool over the last few months. A virtual trade mission – perhaps a concept we could have only have imagined a matter of months ago.
Although a digital introduction and meet will never be a substitute for the real thing – it provided us with the opportunity to engage with a variety of interesting companies both as fellow Scottish delegates and as Canadian connections.
With a whole range of speakers covering the intricacies of entering the Canadian market as well as discussion on the whole range of cultural similarities between the province and Scotland.
Lochaber Chamber plan to run another mission in November to which we would certainly recommend to a friend!
