Jamieson speaks

After stepping down from The Scotsman, which he continued to write for, he established Scott-Buzz, the one-stop business news website aiming to help business enterprise and the SME sector.

Bill was a brilliant commentator on business and investment platforms, speaking with passion and humour on the major business and political issues of the day. He was a passionate advocate of the positive overall economic effects for all society of the championing of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.

Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Bill Jamieson, a great journalist and a remarkable voice for Scotland. He was a friend and valued colleague.
