We were also very pleased to confirm Tom Bartošák-Harlow as new Director of Communications, replacing Alistair Clifton. Tom is currently Head of External Relations of the Confederation of Passenger Transport, the trade body for bus and coach operators across the UK.  Tom will be an outstanding addition to the Chamber team, at a time when excellent communications with our members and stakeholders has arguably never been more important.

The next event to look forward to will be British Tugowners Association's Conference and Dinner on Wednesday 11 May, in Hampshire.  The Conference will be horizon scanning the future of towage and port ecosystem and is very pleased to welcome the Maritime Minister Robert Courts MP, and the MCA's CEO Brian Johnson as speakers, along with the UK Chamber's President Graham Westgarth amongst others. The Conference and Dinner provide an ideal time for delegates to meet, exchange ideas and network, and registration for all is available here.

Finally, our Annual Summer Lunch will be returning to the Chamber’s Event Calendar on Tuesday 14th June. This will be held at the wonderful Mansfield Traquair in Edinburgh and will give everyone a great opportunity to network and hear from our new President Graham Westgarth.
