Aberdeen Annual Lecture 2022

SCDI has been working in the North East of Scotland for over 50 years supporting an integral and vital part of the Scottish economy.

The SCDI Annual Lecture, which launched in 2004, is now a well-established highlight of the Scottish business calendar, providing an opportunity to network with approximately 300 delegates from the world of business, politics, education, public services and the voluntary sector.

We are delighted to announce that in 2022, the lecture will be held at P and J Live, the largest event complex in the North of Scotland, boasting world-class conference and exhibition facilities, sustainably powered by local, renewable energy sources.

It is situated next to Aberdeen International Airport, just a few short minutes from the city’s western peripheral route, and in prime position for rail links between Aberdeen and the North of Scotland.

The event is known for attracting inspirational and topical speakers. In 2021, the year of COP26, CEO of the Climate Change Commission, Chris Stark, joined members to share his thoughts on the challenges and opportunities ahead for Scotland.

In previous years, speakers have included Rupert Soames OBE, Chief Executive, Serco Group Plc; Robin Watson, Chief Executive, Wood; Martin Temple, Chair, Health & Safety Executive and Dame Ann Dowling DBE, President, Royal Academy of Engineering and the 2022 speaker will be of the same high standard attendees have come to expect.
