Rene Looper is a renowned speaker on social media. Originally from Holland, Rene moved to Scotland in 1999 to start a hotel business which he sold in 2006.

  1. Very good luck to him, but can we please also keep on campaigning for proper broadband for many areas within the community?
    Similarly, social media is very little use without mobile phone reception, which a lot of us don't have.
    Any chance of using events like this not only to help local businesses but also to campaign for improved infrastructure?
