The Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce are delighted that Josh Littlejohn, co-founder of Social Bite, and Calum Paterson, Managing Partner for Scottish Equity Partners are the keynote speakers for their 6th Annual Business Awards taking place on 27th February.

Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive, Liz McAreavey, commented:

This year we have chosen ‘Values’ as our theme and both our speakers represent this in their ethical and responsible approach to business.”

Whilst Josh said:

“I’m delighted to be speaking at the ECC Business Awards this year, particularly as the theme for the evening will be ‘values’, something that is crucially important to how Social Bite is run. It’s heartening that the wider business community is recognising this subject and I look forward to hearing how the capital’s leading business people are approaching this.”

Calum added:

“I am very much looking forward to the ECC Annual Awards and to meeting some of Edinburgh’s most exciting companies.  I am sure the theme of responsible business is one that will resonate with all of those attending.”
