IoD South West Chair handover

Almost 100 members and guests attended the final event of 2018 at Aerospace Bristol, home of the last Concorde ever built.  The fantastic event was kindly sponsored by BMW showcasing some of their new range of cars and was the opportunity to hear a review from outgoing IoD South West Chair, Nick Sturge as well as our exciting plans for 2019.  
The event was also significant in introducing Muir MacDonald as the new South West Chair.  Muir looks forward to meeting as many of you as possible at events around the region.
