Lunchtime Learning with the Cabinet Office: Paula Sussex, CEO of The Student Loans Company

25 Aug 2021
IoD Online Event, Online
In association with the new UK Government Cabinet Office in Glasgow, IoD Scotland is hosting a lunchtime discussion session with Paula Sussex, Chief Executive of the Student Loans Company. Paula Sussex joined the Student Loans Company (SLC) in September 2018 and has extensive leadership experience, particularly in delivering large-scale transformation and change programmes and services in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

A graduate of the London Business School, Paula originally trained as a barrister before working in the private sector. Her 25 year career has been primarily in consultancy, but also in the service delivery of large scale IT, latterly working as Senior Vice President with Logica. In 2021, on behalf of the Student Loans Company, Paula was recognised as CEO of the year by the National Centre for Diversity at the annual Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE) Awards.

At this event for IoD Scotland members, we will hear more from Paula about her background, including how she entered the Civil Service and her diversity work, before going on to explore what the new Cabinet Office hub means for Glasgow and the business community; how and why Glasgow was chosen and how the Cabinet Office will operate from the city.

This is an online event. To attend, book below. We will provide a joining link before the event.
