Places are still available for a Deeside business networking group, which launches in the New Year, adding to existing local groups.
BNI Scotland North will open a Deeside network in January, adding to business development groups in Aberdeen and Westhill.
The organisation is keen to welcome companies from across Deeside, including Banchory, Aboyne and Ballater, as well as the Mearns area.
The group will meet at the Tor-Na-Coille Hotel, Inchmarlo Road in Banchory every Tuesday - with the first meeting to be held on January 13 between 6:45am and 9:15am.
Trevor Mutch, owner and managing director of Banchory-based R Davidson (Ltd), and Rob Hamilton, chief executive of Aberdeen-based technology provider Dynamic Edge, acquired BNI Scotland North in October 2014.
Trevor, executive director BNI Scotland North, said: “The launch of the Deeside group is a key part of our broader goal of bringing the networking organisation – and the many benefits it can bring - to a much wider audience of business people.
“Through working together with other members we are confident that we can further enhance commerce in the Deeside area.”
Rob Hamilton, executive director BNI Scotland North, said: “We’re excited about the opportunities for greater collaboration between businesses that the launch of the new group brings.
“Both Trevor and I are looking forward to meeting and building relationships with members of the community to drive growth and help local businesses achieve their goals.”
