Good news is a little harder to come by these days; so, we are especially pleased to be able to share some brighter news with you today. We have just received notification that we have two directors who are finalists in the IoD Scotland Director of the Year Awards.
Firstly, Sara Speirs, Spectrum’s Managing Director is a finalist in the ‘Director of the Year – Small-Medium Business’ category, and Operations Director, Rebecca Bell is a finalist in the ‘Director of the Year – Young’ category. It is the first time that we have had two finalists at the IoD Scotland Awards.
The IoD Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner is due to take place on Tuesday 8th September in the DoubleTree by Hilton in Glasgow. Given the current situation, you will appreciate it is an event we are all looking forward to with great anticipation.
Speaking about the nominations, Sara Speirs commented, “I am delighted that Rebecca and myself have been selected as finalists at the IoD Awards. Amidst the current challenges of the COVID-19 crisis, it’s come as a real morale booster for the whole team at Spectrum.
“While these are individual awards, they have only been made possible by the exceptional commitment and dedication of our entire team, especially over the past few weeks. So, even reaching this stage is welcome reward and recognition for all of them.”
Rebecca Bell added, “Naturally, I am excited for Sara and myself, but our successes are largely due to the spirit and effort of the whole team at Spectrum. They have been working extremely hard under very challenging conditions; so, a big thank you has to go to every one of them, they deserve to share in any success. This good news has already provided a much-needed lift; being named as a finalist is exciting for me, but it is an equally fitting reward for all of their hard work.”
The Director of the Year Awards were founded in 2004 and recognise and celebrate leadership and excellence at director level within the private, public and voluntary sectors across the length and breadth of Scotland.
Effective, dynamic, ambitious and creative leaders deserve recognition – their success is good for Scotland’s economy, its local communities, and its future generations.
The independent competition is judged by a panel of experts who bring industry experience and market knowledge to recognise the most significant achievements of Scotland’s leaders.
