Old Aberdeen

We will get together in Old Aberdeen.  It’s a great place to explore the ancient history of Scotland’s oldest university, founded in 1495.  Here will be host to the Friday night Ten Outstanding Young People awards, as well as a light dinner and the evening’s entertainment.

Getting there

🚗 Car: The Sandman hotel is located in the city centre of Aberdeen.  It is accessible by car but parking is limited and needs to be organised directly with the hotel in advance.  There is parking available on the Old Aberdeen campus for the weekend at a cost of £2 for the two days and is a 15-20 minute walk from the Sandman hotel.

🚂🚌Train and Bus:  Aberdeen is very accessible for public transportation.  The train and bus stations in Aberdeen are attached to Union Square, a new and modern shopping centre in the heart of the city.  At Union Square you will find access to a taxi rank and public transport.  To take the bus to the venue, please get off at the Blackfriars street stop which the 10B, 12, 35, 37, 59, 220 305, 420, 420C, N37 and X37 will all take you to.

✈Plane: Aberdeen International airport is currently under renovation but should be almost complete by the time of conference.  There is access to public transport and a taxi rank to bring you into Aberdeen.  A taxi will be around £20 from the airport so please feel free to try to organise to share on our Facebook event.  There are great connecting flights with London, Manchester, Southampton, Belfast, Amsterdam, Dublin, and many other European hub airports.

Training Information

There will be a full training programme on Saturday 28 March.  The day will be based around personal improvement, team working and how to be your best self and see yourself with your 20/20 vision.

In a dynamic workshop hosted by David Robertson of Wild Thinking, delegates will develop their own personal development path to becoming better team players and team leaders. Building on Patrick Lencioni’s ‘The Five Dysfunctions of a Team’, delegates will learn new tools and models, and how to use them as a framework for building cohesive teams.
