Unless you have been locked in a darkened room for the past few days it will have been impossible to notice that Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio has been in town.
Following on from the visit last year of George Clooney to the ‘Social Bite’ sandwich bar, Leonard visited their new ‘Home’ restaurant that does so much good for the homeless of Edinburgh.
Leo then went on to be the key note speaker at this years Scottish Business Awards, or he did after he escaped the throng off fans waiting patiently outside for him!
Now in their 5th year The Scottish Business Awards, supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland, aim to recognise excellence in Scottish business and celebrate those who are building, and leading, successful, growing and dynamic businesses in Scotland.
Jennifer Cheynes OBE was one of this years judges and attended the event last night.
2000+ people were in attendance and the event was a huge success, hosted by DJ Chris Evans and the event chairman Tom Hunter it was an action packed night. The presentation by Leonardo, and his visit to our city has made headline news everywhere.
Founder of the awards Josh Littlejohn says: “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”.
Here are just a few snapshots of the night, including a surprise performance by legendary Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr.
