The Leader of Multi Billion Pound Outsourcing Giant to Deliver the 2020 SCDI Annual Lecture

The 2020 SCDI Annual Lecture will be delivered by Rupert Soames OBE, Chief Executive, Serco Group Plc, to an audience of 300 invited guests in Aberdeen on Thursday 16 January 2020. One of the most prestigious events in the North East business calendar, this will be the 16th Annual Lecture delivered by SCDI since its inception in 2004.

SCDI’s Regional Director, Ian Armstrong, commented: “We are delighted to have attracted Rupert to deliver our 2020 Annual Lecture. Serco employs around 50,000 people around the world including 3,000 in Scotland who manage services such as NorthLink Ferries, Caledonian Sleepers as well as supporting the Ministry of Defence at Faslane and Lochalsh, the NHS at Forth Valley, Wishaw and Dumfries, and the Scottish Prison Service at Kilmarnock.  We are delighted that Rupert has agreed to share his thoughts and insights on many of the key issues affecting the domestic, UK and international business environment.

As his Twitter account states he is interested in people, public policy, the eccentric and absurd. Given all that has been happening in the political sphere and its impact on global trade there will be much for him to reflect on and I know he is going to lead and deliver a fascinating discussion session and Lecture which will greatly interest our members from across the country.”
