About this Event

Following the success of our first 'In Discussion Session' with Alan Jope, we're pleased to confirm we will now host a full series of these events from August 2020 to July 2021.

Sandy Begbie CBE, recently joined Tesco Bank as Chief Transformation Officer, responsible for driving change within the Bank.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon recently confirmed Sandy will lead plans to develop a jobs guarantee for young Scots. Sandy led the Developing the Young Workforce Group that played a pivotal role in the delivery of the Edinburgh Guarantee to young people.

His appointment came after the Scottish Government released an action plan on how to limit unemployment caused by the impact of coronavirus. Amongst other measures, the report suggested company bosses should receive a cash incentive to recruit long-term unemployed youngsters for work experience.

Throughout the session we will answer questions submitted from attendees in the chat box, you will also have the chance to submit questions in advance of the event during your registration.

Speaker Information:

Prior to his move to Tesco Bank, Sandy was most recently director of global people, organisation and culture integration, at Standard Life Aberdeen as well as lead executive for China and Hong Kong.

Prior to Standard Life Aberdeen, he worked at Standard Life, Aegon UK, Scottish Power and the Royal Bank of Scotland. He was appointed a CBE last year for services to business and social inclusion.
