They will also be asked for their views on IoD policy in post-referendum Scotland.

Commenting on the event, David Watt says:

“After two years of intensive campaigning people might be forgiven for thinking that the referendum result was the culmination of what has been a long and, at times, energising rather than enlightening campaign.

“The reality is that the end of referendum is the start of what must be a concerted effort to deliver the best result for Scotland within the Union.

“Greater fiscal and political autonomy are on the way and we now need to work together to make sure that the outcome is successful. The key issues for business have not been changed by the referendum – Scotland needs a climate that supports the creation and growth of successful enterprises.

“At this event we shall be looking for the collective input of IoD members in Aberdeen to help shape IoD Scotland and national policies to develop our public affairs and lobbying efforts.”

  • IoD Aberdeen’s ‘Policy Voice Live’ event takes place on Wednesday, October 8, in the Royal Northern and University Club from 12.30 to 3pm. A members-only event, places can be booked at, or by calling IoD Scotland on 0131 557 5488.
