A record number of nominations have been received for this year’s awards and the category finalists and winners will be acknowledged and celebrated at the Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner on Thursday 23 March 2017 at the Crown Plaza Glasgow.

David Watt, Executive Director, IoD Scotland, commented: “I am delighted to see so many entries from across Scotland representing such a wide spread of industries and sectors. It is massively important for Scotland, and its economy and people, that we have effective and dynamic leadership at the very top of our businesses and organisations particularly at the moment, when strong leadership can remain a constant driver of performance amid overwhelming change inflicted by external forces.”

Professor Susan Deacon CBE, Chair of IoD Scotland, will welcome guests before Grant Stott hosts the evening’s proceedings. The keynote address is being delivered by Keith Brown MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work. You will also hear from the new Director General of the Institute of Directors, Stephen Martin.
