LCCI's Ambassadors

The LCCI Ambassador initiative has been in place for over a decade and has proven to be immensely successful for members, LCCI and our valued Ambassadors. We hand-pick our Ambassadors based on their high level of professionalism, knowledge and integrity. The group are on hand to help members make the most of membership. Ambassadors use their own experiences to provide advice to fellow members, facilitate connections and networking and to promote LCCI to the wider business community. 

Make sure you connect with an Ambassador on the LCCI Community App or at one of our events.
