    Happy New Year everyone.
    Hope its a healthy and prosperous one for you, your family and your business.

    Looking forward to a busy year and like many others hoping Scotland comes through the uncertainty of Brexit intact as the successful Nation it is.
    It was very pleasing to receive a kind invitation to speak at the European Congress of Local Government to present the Smart Village Scotland Initiative to a European Audience in Krakow Poland in April. Sadly this conflicts with an exceptionally period for the roll out of Smart Vilage in Scotland and may sadly need to decline the offer on this occasion.

    I have received interest in our strategy from several European Countries who share our desire to create a Digital Nation. The Digital Scotland – Smart Village Scotland initiative has captured the imagination as it is a unique inclusive approach where Rural and Tourism Development drives the Digital Economy.

    Thanks for visiting and please contact me should you wish to learn more about Smart Village Scotland,
