MyAberdeen - Meet the Ambassadors who will promote Aberdeen as a city to Invest, Live, Work and Visit
Aberdeen City Council's promotional campaign Aberdeen Invest Live Visit promotes the city as a quality business location, an attractive proposition for inward investment, a great place to live and work and an attractive business and leisure tourism destination.
A number of Aberdeen Invest Live Visit Ambassadors have been appointed to help promote the City in its drive to raise awareness of opportunities available in Aberdeen. The Ambassadors, who have volunteered to represent the city - come from a wide spectrum of the business community, will identify why they think the city is excellent for investment opportunities, how relocating here has so many rewards and why the city has so much to offer the visitor. The Ambassadors will help illustrate just how you can invest, live and visit in the city. They are:

This has won her a number of national awards and industry recognition and most recently she has been recognised as the UK's top woman mentor; thanks to her work with Scottish Chambers of Commerce.
Live Aberdeen: Ally Prockter, Aberdeen FC Community Trust
Aberdeen FC Trust is a shining light in how community activity can make the difference to families living in a city environment. The charity works in close partnership with the city's major football club (and other key partners) "To provide support and opportunity to change lives for the better".

Quote from Jeanette Forbes, Invest Aberdeen Ambassador - 'I've had a lot of support and encouragement over the years and like most entrepreneurs, want to give something back to the city which has given me so much.'
Quote from Ally Prockter, Live Aberdeen Ambassador - 'Having lived in the city since I was 9, I have seen it expand and evolve into a diverse and vibrant city. My position with Aberdeen FC Community Trust provides me with a great opportunity to tell everyone else how great Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland really is.'
Quote from Jason Stewart Visit Aberdeen Ambassador - 'I chose to represent Aberdeen in this way as it's the place I've known and loved my whole life. My job and interest in travel presents many opportunities to experience different cities and cultures but nowhere quite has that unique charm of Aberdeen… we should all be proud of our little corner of Scotland, and what it has and continues to achieve.'
Quote from Dawn Schultz, City Promotions Manager, Aberdeen City Council
'It is such an exciting time in development Aberdeen's global position and we must capitalise on the wealth of skills and expertise that exist in the region currently to promote the city as an ideal location to Invest, Live and Visit.
We would like to thank all our ambassadors for agreeing to participate in the MyAberdeen programme and look forward to working with our new ambassadors in the coming months to raise awareness of all Aberdeen has to offer.
The Aberdeen Invest Live Visit initiative has also identified a number of case studies, profiling what real people think about our city. What persuaded them to make Aberdeen their home and raise a family here. Why is it a perfect city if you are a start-up or SME business?
The My Aberdeen initiative is to highlight that Aberdeen is unique, has a high standard of living compared to the rest of the UK and why Aberdeen has been voted the Happiest City in Scotland!
