Destination Leaders Programme Scotland – Summer 2016 Updates

DLP Year 3 Graduate on 19 May 2016

Congratulations to the latest DLP 3 cohort of twenty-one Glasgow and Edinburgh industry professionals, (pictured above) who graduated from the Destination Leaders programme at Edinburgh Napier University on 19 May, with the 2015/2016 intake producing what was agreed to be an excellent round of group projects and presentations. At the time of writing, two DLP Year 3 projects have secured support for further development.

Programme leader Kenneth Wardrop said: “The standard of presentations in DLP 3 was exceptionally high. We were delighted to see a diverse range of collaborative group projects and the combination of Glasgow and Edinburgh professionals has generated valuable debate and partnership working. We are confident that this will have a significant impact on future working relationships between these two great cities.
