Dawn McKaig

It gives me great pleasure in congratulating Dawn on her professional success. It’s a delight to hear the news that she has been promoted to the post of Chair of Chartered Management Institute (CMI), Scotland Board. This is an excellent news and I am certain that she will take CMI in Scotland to the next level. 

I must say that all this is a result of her hard work and determination. She has been able to gather accolades and has been appreciated by her seniors. Dawn has contributed greatly to the CMI Scotland Board and as well as the organisation and giving her best in every situation.

Once again, on behalf of CMI Scotland Board, I congratulate Dawn on her promotion. All the very best for all her future endeavours and may she touch the pinnacle of success with her consistency and ability.
