Go Forth Stirling is a registered limited company. The projects and services outlined in our Business Plan are delivered by a Project Manager and small team of staff. These staff report to a Board of Directors. The Board was elected when the Company was formed in 2017. All of those businesses who voted in the BID ballot and are required to pay the BID levy were able to nominate someone to be a Director. The Board represents a range of national and independent businesses from across the BID area.
Go Forth Stirling has maximum impact by working in partnership with a range of statutory service providers and other key partners. Representatives from these agencies and organisations attend Board meetings in an advisory, non-decision making capacity.

He is also vice-chair of Stirling District Tourism Ltd, which is responsible for the National Wallace Monument.
