Stephen Laughlin

Senior Events Manager

I manage a range of multiple different events and absolutely love my job and the challenges that come with it whilst managing client relationships and working with many different businesses. My career in events management has allowed me to plan and manage many different types of events globally. In my spare time I’m usually exploring the north of Scotland and it’s mountains or socialising with friends over a gin.


Thanks for organising the event! It was a positive step for us in terms of building a community of intrapreneurs across Scotland.

Just a quick note to say well done on another fantastic Scottish Politician awards. Once again, I’ve had very positive feedback from those attending from Virgin Trains who, like me, recognise the value of our involvement in such a prestigious and thoroughly enjoyable event.
