The Footdown Scotland group is now firmly established and has been meeting for 3 years. The group meets on the afternoons of the third Wednesday of the month and rotates venues between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The Footdown Scotland group now has a great balance of experience, gender, and representation from non-competing sectors - There is now over 300 years of collective experience around the table.
The group is led by experienced Scottish businessman Cameron Thomson and Chaired by another experienced Scottish businessman, Ian Fulton, and enjoys the Patronage of James “Midge” Ure, OBE, Ivor Novello award winning musician, and Band-Aid trustee.
In addition to the group mentoring and one-to-one coaching that is facilitated by Cameron, many of the group members have taken advantage of using Footdown’s organisational insight diagnostic tool to assist them in the leadership of their organisations.
