This week we launched CIPD Scotland in three cities. Blinded by the sun and unable to work on my laptop as the train galloped through fife, I reflected upon the regions covered by the Aberdeen event I was headed to. That event launched CIPD Scotland to our members in North of Scotland and Mid Scotland. As the train came into a dappled Dundee, with the vista up the Tay looking more like California I considered how Perth and Dundee come together with fife and Angus to make up Mid Scotland.Aberdeen is at epicentre of the UK oil and gas industry. Our chair Kate Findlay and Vice Chair Bev Pirie both lead L&D for major Oil and Gas companies. Helen Stuart, another Northern leading light, heads up HR for Abu Dhabi based Taqa Oil, one of the new breed exploiting Scotland’s mature fields. We met David Brigg’s HRD of Robert Gordon’s University, the learning powerhouse for the industry and the seat of the sector academies as well as the focus of Scotland’s green energy learning effort.
