A networking and business social event by Causeway Ireland Scotland Business Exchange, in partnership with AM Bid and sponsored by Johnston Carmichael.
David Sole OBE won 44 caps for the Scotland national rugby team and 3 caps for the British & Irish Lions. He captained Scotland 25 times, leading them to the 1990 Grand Slam and the Semi Final of the Rugby World Cup in 1991. He was awarded the OBE for Services to Rugby Football in 1993.
David graduated from Exeter University with a BA Hons in Economics and Agricultural Economics, following which he enjoyed a successful career at United Distillers and Diageo working in global operations. Since leaving Diageo at the end of 2000, he has become an established executive coach and in 2011, he co-founded the School for CEOs, where he is Managing Partner.
David has extensive experience of working with Boards both as an Executive Coach and also as a facilitator. He was appointed Non-Executive Chairman of AM Bid in 2017 and joined the Board of Trustees at Worldwide Cancer Research in 2018.

There will also be time for an audience Q&A with David before the event closes.
