Sir Ian Wood will share his secrets of leadership success at an event hosted by the Institute of Directors (IoD) next month.

The former Wood Group chairman and chief executive has been confirmed as the keynote speaker introducing a series of “masterclasses” at Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University on Wednesday, September 7.

Sir Ian is expected to explain how members of private sector-led development body Opportunity North East are working together to improve the region’s economic fortunes.

He said: “Listening to and learning about the diverse experiences of accomplished leaders will augment and fine tune each of our approaches and skills, and enhance the performance of the business community here in the north-east.

“Good leadership is about having a vision, thoroughly investigating the market opportunity, selecting a really good management team and building up strong relationships with your clients.”
