Lanarkshire Business Hub – October Event


Over 40 representatives from businesses across Lanarkshire attended the recent Lanarkshire Business Hub networking breakfast.

Hosted by Clyde Gateway, the networking event was held at the recently opened Red Tree Magenta Business Suites in Shawfield.

Representatives from businesses across a range of sectors joined tenants from the new business suites for breakfast and networking before presentations took place, followed by a tour of the new business suite facilities and further networking.

Lorraine MacDonald, Owner of Speirs Gumley, presented to attendees about her humble beginnings to owning a property management company with a £4m turnover. She also gave her take on how to build the business and why the company moved to the Red Tree Magenta development.

Martin McKay, Executive Director of Regeneration at Clyde Gateway, also spoke at the event, giving a potted history of the regeneration of Glasgow’s East End, the ethos behind the projects and what is has meant to the area, brining homes and work places together to improve the quality of life.

The vote of thanks was given by Mark Houston, Enterprise Development Officer at North Lanarkshire Council, one of The Hub sponsors. He made members aware of the current Gift Card Appeal being run across Lanarkshire and encouraged members to support it at the next event.

Lanarkshire Business Hub offers local businesses a free forum to come together to meet and share their business knowledge and experiences through networking and business presentations. For more information or to become a member email

The next event will take place on 21 November and will be run under the Lanarkshire Business Partnership banner, which includes FSB, Lanarkshire Chamber of Commerce and RBS.
