The Lord McGowan Memorial Lecture


S6 enjoyed a fascinating talk from CEO and Group Managing Director at Arnold Clark, Eddie Hawthorne, who delivered the Lord McGowan Memorial Lecture.

The annual talk pays tribute to the highly successful Hutchesonian, Lord McGowan, who had an impressive career in business and was the chairman of the chemical giant ICI for 20 years.

Eddie met with pupils and staff at the Fotheringay Centre and spoke about his role, highlighting that commitment, good leadership qualities and working hard can lead to an exciting and successful career.

Following the lecture, Eddie hosted a Q&A session, with many of the senior pupils interested in business benefitting greatly from the event.

The S6 pupils thanked Eddie for delivering such an interesting talk, held as part of the 2017/18 Talking Points Series.
