Shortlisted - CEO of the Year and Employer of the Year
McEwan Fraser Legal are delighted to announce that they were shortlisted for not one, but two, awards at the Scottish Business Awards. We were contenders for CEO of the Year and Employer of the Year, competing against some of Scotland most successful companies including Skyscanner, BrewDog and Barrhead Travel. This award recognises Scotland’s outstanding employers which have created jobs and great working environments in which employees can thrive and achieve excellence.
The award ceremony itself took place on Thursday 12th November at the Edinburgh EICC. The impressive venue was filled with over 2100 attendees, the largest dinner in Scottish history, something we very much enjoyed being part of. Our table was positioned right in front of the stage meaning we had front row seats for Oscar-winning actor, director and humanitarian, George Clooney who was the keynote speaker, as well as Sir Chris Hoy and Chris Evans.
This annual award gathers together Scottish businesses from every sector to celebrate and share individual successes – great opportunity to not only complete with Scotland’s best, but also to networking with them!
The event of course was all in aid of charity and a staggering £500,000 was raised for charities including the Social Bite Fund and human rights organisation Not On Our Watch.
Although we did not win either award on the night we are still incredibly proud to have been shortlisted, and what a fantastic night!
