Scotland 2019

A Celebration of Leadership Talent, Success and Achievement
Virtual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday 8 September 2020


A record number of entries were received for the 2020 Awards, recognising Scotland’s business leaders’ creativity and tenacity

The Institute of Directors Scotland is pleased to announce the shortlist for this year’s Director of the Year Awards.

With the world facing the most collectively challenging situation known for a lifetime, there has been a significant impact on both consumer behaviour and organisational structures. As such, we would like to acknowledge the hard work and leadership skills of all those who entered the Awards this year.

Our finalists will have their moment to shine on Tuesday 8 September when we announce the winners of the award categories live at our very first ‘virtual’ Awards Ceremony.

Going virtual means that so many more can join in the celebrations. We look forward to featuring the achievements of our finalists across IoD media, including online, the commemorative Awards Brochure, our quarterly magazine, E-newsletters and social media – so that sponsors, supporters, colleagues, guests can all share in their success.

Further details will be announced in the coming weeks or you can email or call Joyce on 01577 865498

The IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards celebrate the best of the best across Scottish businesses and directors at the forefront of leadership excellence and are open to both members and non-members from across Scotland.


In Scotland, we’re not that good at celebrating things and sometimes it is worthwhile reflecting on the things we have collectively been able to achieve.”

Robin Watson, Chief Executive, Wood
