I provided full event management for CIPD Scotland’s Annual Scottish Conference and Gala Dinner from 1999 to 2014. The event is the leading annual HR conference in Scotland, attracting more than 450 delegates over two days. I significantly grew the event both in terms of delegate numbers and commercial revenue from sponsorship and the exhibition. The 2013 conference won ‘Best Conference’ at the Scottish Event Awards. High profile speakers have included Greg Dyke, Anita Roddick, Tony Buzan, James Cracknell, Steve Cram, Innocent Drinks co-founder Richard Reed, and UK and international HR leaders from organisations including Google, Facebook, RBS, McDonalds, BBC and London 2012 to name a few.
