17th November 2016
The Scottish Business Awards, supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, aims to recognise excellence in Scottish business and celebrate those who are building, and leading, successful, growing and dynamic businesses in Scotland. This is the premier platform for sharing your success if your company is achieving excellence or making waves in your industry.


Leonardo DiCaprio, Academy Award® winning actor, producer and activist, is well known for his dedication to protecting our environment on a global scale.

It is our privilege to welcome Mr DiCaprio to the 2016 Scottish Business Awards.

I’m delighted that the Scottish Business Awards goes into it’s 5th year stronger and more exciting than ever. We’ve welcomed Presidents, business legends and Hollywood icons, and the platform is on course to have raised over £4 Million for good causes since it began – a credit to the strength and generosity of Scotland’s vibrant business community. Thank you to everyone who participates and I look forward to seeing you all on the night.

Josh Littlejohn, Scottish Business Awards Founder.

The Royal Bank of Scotland is delighted to support the Scottish Business Awards again. Our partnership has been in place since the event began 5 years ago and we have worked hard with Josh Littlejohn and Sir Tom Hunter to ensure its success. The Royal Bank of Scotland supports more businesses in Scotland than any other bank and we are very focussed on serving our customers well. Recognising outstanding business performance and bringing high profile speakers to Scotland to showcase Scottish business is key to our partnership with the SBA and we are sure it will be a huge success once again.


Malcolm Buchanan, Chair, Scotland Board, Royal Bank of Scotland.

Leonardo is not only a famous actor, he is a pioneering environmentalist and committed philanthropist whose charitable work is making a global impact. To have him address our nation’s premier businesses and entrepreneurs is incredibly exciting.

That the Scottish Business Awards is the largest awards dinner of its kind in the whole of the UK says a lot about the strength and ambition of Scotland’s entrepreneurial community, and 17 November is set to be another very special night.
