“The event brings together some of the most recognised and respected global leaders around the world and Aberdeen itself has a rich history of producing innovative and successful entrepreneurs who have made an impact on a global stage.

“At RGU we aim to inspire our students to explore the world of entrepreneurial opportunity and to develop their enterprising mindsets.

“The students of today will drive the economy forward so it is important that they get the opportunity to hear from industry as part of their academic learning, helping them to build the strength of character needed to make a success of their business ideas.”

Edosa Akioya, Director at Total Perspectives, said: “We’re excited to bring this unique event to Aberdeen for the 3rd year running. This year, we’ve expanded it to a full day event, with a strong line up of both local and global leaders, including more time for delegates to network.

“At this year’s conference, we’ll be exploring what can happen when purpose connects teams and individuals, creating strong organizational culture with intentional leadership that inspires extraordinary results”
