IoD Scotland Member Roundtable with Ivan McKee MSP
IoD Scotland invites members to join us online in conversation with Ivan McKee, SNP MSP for Glasgow Provan and former Minister for Business Trade Tourism and Enterprise.
Hear Mr McKee on the opportunities for SMEs from the recent Programme for Government particularly as we look ahead to the UK and Scottish Government budgets later this year. We will also touch upon the New Deal for Business Group and the principles behind it – particularly in relation to research published in August by the Fraser of Allander Institute.
An online event, the session will be chaired to Chatham House Rules and provides an excellent forum for members to pose questions and discussion with an expert when it comes to Scottish Government economic policy.
Ivan McKee served as a Minister in the Scottish Government in a number of business and trade roles between 2018-2023. He was responsible for the successful development and implementation of the Scottish Government’s export growth strategy ‘A Trading Nation’.
Brought up in Glasgow Ivan obtained a BSc.BEng in Manufacturing Sciences and Engineering from Strathclyde University and an MBA from Newcastle University.
After spending 2 years in Bangladesh with Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), Ivan worked for a number of large and start-up manufacturing companies. In 2005 he started his own international manufacturing consultancy business and from 2009 to 2015 invested in, and led turnarounds of, several manufacturing businesses.
