IoD Online: Masterclass with Sir John Elvidge

08 Jun 2020
Online webinar, Online
The IoD Masterclasses provide an exclusive and truly inspirational experience to virtually meet with senior local business leaders and hear about their Leadership Journeys. 

You will hear about the challenges they have faced on their journey and how they overcame them, as well as their successes. You will hear about the decisions they had to make, what drove them, and what they have learned. These are unique off-record conversations where you not only get to hear from the leaders, but ask your own questions in a Q&A.

Our Masterclasses form part of IoD Scotland’s mission to help develop, connect and influence business Leaders.

We are delighted to announce our next Masterclass will be held with Sir John Elvidge, Chair of Edinburgh Airport Ltd and former Permanent Secretary to the Scottish Government.

In this session we will receive an update on the Airline and Airport industry,  
explore how the role of the civil service both now and post Covid might look as well as what should the priorities of the Scottish Government look like in the next few years?
