The London Chapter of the Derby Ambassadors Club is a group of individuals who are primarily based in London but have an ongoing affiliation with Derby.

Ambassadors will:

  • Be invited to exclusive events in London and Derby to network with other club members and get up to speed on developments in Derby and Derbyshire

  • Have the opportunity to meet key business leaders in Derby and Derbyshire

  • Receive the annual magazine, Orrery which focuses on the pull between Derby and London

  • Receive quarterly e-newsletters covering key stories from the city and county.

The overall aim of the Club is to create contacts who help raise the profile of Derby and Derbyshire to attract investment into the city and county.
