IoD Scotland, Director of the Year Awards 2016
Thursday, 17 March 2016
The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow
The IoD Awards celebrate success, recognising those directors and leaders who have had the confidence to make bold decisions in the face of uncertainty, carefully weighing up the risks and believing in their own vision and leadership skills to see a project through that will place their organisation in a stronger and more sustainable position.
As leaders of teams and specialists in their field, these individuals drive and grow some of our most successful companies, providing employment and support for communities alongside their services or products. Most importantly, they set the example for those that aspire to follow in their footsteps – the future generation of leaders. The Awards shine a light on Scotland’s most successful business Directors, Partners, Chairs, NXDs and entrepreneurs from 2015, leading any size of organisation, firm or social enterprise.
Having worked with both First City Events and IoD Scotland delivering technical audio visual support, and production management services for both the IoD Scotland annual conference and previous awards, mclcreate were brought on board once again as event partner to bring the evening’s celebrations to life for the 400 strong capacity audience in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow.
The onsite crew from mclcreate provided the full service AV production that included a full colour 12m wide x 3.8m high digital print canvas wrap stage set backdrop, full HD projection facilities, full HD camera channels and fibre optic signal distribution platform. Along with this we also installed a full range audio reinforcement system and an awards ceremony lighting and rigging package to give the razzmatazz, look and feel befitting the celebrations at hand in the room on the night.
The Executive Director of the Institute of Directors in Scotland, commented:
“What all winners have in common this year is vision and strong leadership, and the ability to recognise that any business is only as good as the capable and committed people who have the passion to make it succeed.”
Given the passion that mclcreate brings as a supportive and collaborative partner to the technical delivery whilst working on these high profile public facing events, we couldn’t agree more.
