This was followed by scaling and selling two financial publishing companies for a combined value of over £91 million, and more recently an education company and recycling business for £60 million. In 2014, he was awarded an OBE for services to the Highlands, and in 2017, was named Spear's UK entrepreneur of the year.

Mr MacDonald said: “I love business, believe that opportunities abound, and I want to encourage younger generations to share this ethos, particularly in the Highlands.”

“At Entrepreneurial Scotland, we manage a rapidly growing membership of some of the country’s most successful business owners, including many in the Highlands and Islands," Mr Kennedy said.

"This free event is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs, business owners and those interested in entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship to come together and hear Angus’ story.”
