Welcome to JCI Scotland

As National President for JCI Scotland 2018, it’s my pleasure to welcome you!

I joined JCI in 2011 after moving to Scotland from Canada.  I was looking for a place to make friends and build up a network in my new home.  I got so much more than that!

JCI has opened so many doors for me in terms of my personal and professional development.  My career has advanced massively over the last 5 years and this is due directly to skills I have gained by being an active member of the organisation.

JCI is a member lead organisation which means you can get whatever you put into the organisation.  Are you looking to gain project management skills?  Get involved in a community impact project.  Are you looking to improve your public speaking?  Join the Charlotte Square club.  Looking to meet new people, come along to one of our many social events.  If there is something you are looking for you can talk to your local board so they can provide it for you or work with them to start a project of your own.  We truly have an open door policy.

So even if you are looking to dip your toe in the water or jump right in, we are here for you!

JCI Scotland National President 2018

  • I joined JCI when I was running my own company. At the time I was looking for a networking group to grow my business, but what I got was even better! JCI has provided me with excellent training courses, new skills that helped me run a business, and improved my confidence when speaking to clients. Best of all, I have met new friends, not just locally, but globally. It really has changed my life!

    Service Engineer, JCI Edinburgh Local President 2018
  • “Being a member of JCI gave me access to useful training and development opportunities as well as the chance to meet, speak to and learn from high profile speakers from business and politics. Many of my experiences and the things I learned during my time on JCI Glasgow’s Board and during my year as Chairman have stuck with me and helped shape my approach to leadership and management. This was a great foundation and no doubt helped shape my business career to date.  The more you put into JCI the more you will get out!”

    Iain Brown
    Head of Legal Analyst Services, JCI Glasgow Chairman and Most Outstanding Member, Europe 2012
  • “I have been a member of JCI for 5 years and I keep renewing every year because of the amazing opportunities that JCI provides me with. The community work that we do is the very core of what this organisation is about. Being an Active Citizen to me is essential – if you see something wrong in the world then you can take action to fix this.  JCI gives you the tools to make an impact locally and globally and I don’t believe any other organisation provides these opportunities.”

    Leeanne Bradley
    Independent Financial Adviser, JCI Edinburgh President 2014
  • “I didn’t know what to expect when I went to my first JCI international conference but going abroad, meeting lovely, like minded people from all over the world and constantly being pushed out of my comfort zone in a friendly environment has immensely boosted my self-confidence. Traveling to amazing locations across the globe, catching up with JCI friends and making new ones, exchanging experiences from other JCI chapters is simply a great experience all together.”
