Director of the year awards

iod awards 2020







A celebration of leadership talent, success and achievement

IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards Postponed 

Amid the current COVID-19 health crisis, the Institute of Directors and IoD Scotland have made the decision to postpone the Director of the Year Awards Ceremony which was scheduled to be held on 21st May. 
 
Although regrettable, we do not wish to put anyone at unnecessary risk and hold a duty of care to our guests, sponsors, staff and suppliers who attend the event. We believe that in the current environment this is the responsible course of action. 
 
The shortlist for each category, including the Regional categories, will still be announced as scheduled mid-April. 
 
We are working hard to secure a new date for the Awards Ceremony at which the winners will be revealed and will endeavour to communicate this at the earliest opportunity. Spirits we hope will have lifted by then and we can bring everyone together for a celebration to acknowledge the achievements of so many exceptional business leaders. 



The Director of the Year Awards were founded in 2004 and recognise and celebrate leadership and excellence at director level within the private, public and voluntary sectors across the length and breadth of Scotland. 

Effective, dynamic, ambitious and creative leaders deserve recognition – their success is good for Scotland’s economy, its local communities and its future generations.

The independent competition is judged by a panel of experts who bring industry experience and market knowledge to recognise the greatest achievements of Scotland’s individual leaders. 

A record number of entries have been received for this year’s awards and the 2020 finalists will be announced shortly.

The rescheduled date for the Awards Ceremony & Dinner will be available to view shortly.
