Ross Turner
MD, Pure Malt

It is like a little shot of adrenaline and ambition because you can’t help but come here and leave inspired to go back and grow your business.

Scott Weir

I will always take the time to touch base with my cohort and see how we can support each other and positively affect each other’s thinking. It’s almost like we can mentor one another – pulling on our skill sets and learning from each other, which is just amazing.

Andy Wilson
Head of Commercial, Aquascot

Following the conscious leader's programme, we made a commitment to making all of our bottles 100% recyclable. It has given us a lot to think about.

Jamie Douglas-Hamilton
Founder and Director, ACTiPH

This scholarship has completely changed my perspective about the world of business, and it's made me rethink what I am doing in terms of my career. I’ve just applied for a position as a liaison officer at Think Tank and this is something I would have never dreamed of doing before I became a Saltire Scholar.
