Queen Elizabeth II: SCDI Comments

Sara Thiam, SCDI Chief Executive, said:

The passing of Her Majesty The Queen is a time of great sorrow for people in all walks of life in every part of Scotland. SCDI joins our members in paying tribute to her and is pausing our events as a mark of our respect.

Throughout her long reign, in good times and in harder times, The Queen was a great champion for our country and our many diverse communities, civic institutions, and businesses.

A Queen’s Award for Enterprise has always been held in the highest esteem by SCDI members presented with it because it recognises the values, excellence and international outlook that she herself embodied.

The country is in mourning now, but we should find solace and resolution from re-dedicating ourselves, and our businesses and organisations, to creating a more purposeful economy and better society.
