The IoD Scotland Annual Conference returns to Gleneagles
31 October & 1 November 2019
This year’s conference takes as its theme Architects of the new Scottish Economy. Scotland is looking to its business leaders to build an economy fit for the modern age – one that is open, dynamic and connected, delivering the financial results needed for growth but at the same time, grounded in the principles of inclusivity, diversity and trust.
Meeting these goals takes great leadership and vision as the nation looks to learn from the stories of its past and present and build on them to transform the future. How do we create the economy of tomorrow?
It aims to build on the success of last year’s conference, bringing together expert speakers, workshops and panel discussions to challenge and inspire.
Now is the time to ask yourself whether you are ready for the challenges ahead – and to re-engineer your skill-set so you can play your part in creating the economy of tomorrow.
Our speakers will reflect on their experiences in tackling this challenge and share their own views on leadership in changing times. They are drawn from a broad cross-section of business and society, with representatives from cutting-edge tech sector joining charities, retail experts and big business to give an over-arching view on the future. With further speakers to be announced, the 2019 line up includes:
- David Beurle, CEO, Future iQ
- David Cutter, President, Global Supply & Procurement & Chief Sustainability Officer, Diageo
- Edel Harris, Chief Executive, Cornerstone
- Kevin Mathers, Country Sales Director, Google UK
- Dr Kim Winser OBE, Founder & CEO, Winser London
Their presentations will be backed by the now regular Friday Business Panel session which will include representation from IOSH, and a number of workshops, including delivery from Where Now Consulting. The sessions will examine in-depth key issues, creating an unrivalled forum in which to become better informed and to be challenged.
The conference also holds numerous networking opportunities to connect with your peers and to discuss the issues raised. It is not only for IoD members, but for all those in the business community who strive to achieve the best.
The Conference opens on Thursday, October 31 with our Leadership Lecture, together with Director Development taster sessions and an informal networking supper. A black-tie dinner concludes the conference on Friday.
