Commenting on the event, local EI branch chairman Laurie MacKay said: “Following on from our Sir David King lecture at the end of January we are delighted to announce Digby Jones will be in Aberdeen on 8 May. The branch is keen to bring the very best speakers to Aberdeen, Highlands & Islands so members and friends can enjoy an excellent evening and engage with top business leaders in the UK.
