Welcome to London Ambassadors

Officially launched in October 2017 at City Hall, the home to London's Mayor, the London Chapter of Derby Ambassadors Club is a group of individuals who are primarily based in London but have an ongoing affiliation with Derby.

Chaired by David Boutcher, Corporate Partner at global law firm Reed Smith, the overall emphasis of the London Chapter is on using Derby’s ‘assets’ in the capital to create contacts and leads to help raise Derby’s profile and drive investment into Derby.

Members will be invited to three gatherings per year which will partly serve a social and networking purpose, and partly be an opportunity to get up to speed on developments and investment opportunities in Derby, including how members might signpost to their contacts.

Speaking about the initiative David Boutcher said: “As competition becomes greater, there must be opportunities for cities like Derby, which is so well and centrally located with great access and communications generally, to attract interest and investment from businesses not just in London but from around the world.”
