Friday 26 October
The fourth annual INSEAD alumni dinner is becoming a fixture in the alumni calendar in Scotland and is an event not to be missed! It is always great fun and offers a unique opportunity to experience one of Edinburgh’s iconic landmarks – this year we’re delighted to announce that, thanks to Paul Skipworth (MBA 95J), it will be held at the iconic headquarters of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS).
Originally an 18th century residence, 28 Queen Street continues to welcome and entertain guests in elegant Scottish fashion. This grand property boasts geometric Georgian architecture across four floors with glorious views of the private Queen Street gardens. Original visitors included the great and the good of the Scottish Enlightenment. Today, 28 Queen Street welcomes members and non-members in its two bars, dining room restaurant and private rooms. As guests step onto the original stone floor of the reception and foyer, they are tempted up the swirling staircase by a breath-taking cupola skylight.
Our venue for the evening is The Hunter Room on the fourth floor, restored to period perfection. Seating up to 18 guests at its luxurious burr walnut dining table, it offers breathtaking views across the gardens of the New Town to the Firth of Forth and beyond to the Kingdom of Fife.
The event is black tie and includes a four-course dinner with wine.
We look forward to welcoming INSEAD alumni and partners.
