The Quality Scotland Ambassador is announced at our annual Scottish Awards for Business Excellence. The Ambassador Award recognises ambassadors of excellence who have supported Quality Scotland on an ongoing basis for multiple years to help make excellence a national characteristic of Scotland. From 2019 the award has been renamed the Dave Bradley Ambassador Award in remembrance of our previous Chair.
In order to be recognised, an individual must demonstrate true commitment to quality and continuous improvement; they have a passion that takes them beyond their own job role and they work with others to gain knowledge and provide support. This allows the process of continuous improvement to develop, add business value, and boost workforce satisfaction.
Julie Rutherford from Penumbra was named Quality Scotland Ambassador at the Scottish Awards for Business Excellence 2019.
